Why do you say your flywheel is shot? Dan found a place that sell shims to shim a turned flywheel back to it's original position. I think it was Goodson at
800-533-8010.Goodsons has a lot of tools for automotive work and they have 2.3 parts also.
Also see www.goodson.com . The light weight flywheels are good for competition use but I don't know how they are for the street. They are not cheap.
Modern Performance (vendors page) sells one also.
Cam; lots of people run the Ranger Roller.

Ya, light weight flywheels are no good on the street. The heavy flywheel stores energy which is used to get the car moving from a stop. With a light flywheel, you will have to rev higher and slip the clutch more to get going.

I agree, lite flywheels are made for the track and really only help with quik revs.
The weight is needed to keep reciprocal mass moving and is better for your whole bottom end.
If you wanted to shave a bit off a stock flywheel that would be ok.
