If anybody is curious, the lightweight flywheel is still steel.
Expect a very detailed clutch+LSD install thread.

The mafia I use is the same for all 2005-2006 Fords. Part number: F7370
Zetec Foci will need an earlier version part number: F7336.
I recommend browsing the Mustang forums for used units at a significant discount.
I bought mine from an individual, but here is the list of all of them on the DiabloSport website:

It doesn't fool the MAF. It extends the range of the MAF to fool the computer.

It's best to talk to your tuner.
My tuner provided me with a base tune to make the drive and that worked well.
I assume you'll have different injectors installed, and that's the big thing that will need to be accounted for.
