3SGTE flywheel help

Hey guys, doing a 4th gen swap in a couple of weeks and getting all the parts I need together. Have everything I need but the flywheel ( coming from 5s so I can't use that flywheel). I've seen on primemr2 they have lightweight flywheels for $200 but is it worth getting a lightweight flywheel? I'm trying to find an oem or at least similar weight to stock that doesn't coast $400 because I'm on a budget. Anyone know where I can get one or I should I just go with lightweight?

I hear of the pros & cons and I just don't want to prematurely wear out the drivetrain especially since I'm sticking with my NA S54 tranny. Thx fellas

Personally I dont like lightweight flywheels. Ive always had a small amount of some gear chatter using them.

With that said, you should easily be able to find a good condition used 3SGTE flywheel and have it resurfaced. I believe you can even go to a parts store and buy one that will fit for like 100-120 or so.
