Midweight flywheel?

53k miles and the old clutch is on its way out
My question is - Does anybody know of a midweight flywheel for the SVT?
I wanna ditch the dualmass but the lightweight aluminum is not for me
I want to retain some vibration dampening, and the i think the aluminum is too light.
A lightweight steel that weighs in between the stock and the aluminum would be nice
I havent been able to find anything - any suggestions?
Also anybody know anything about the lightweight clutch option that spec has?
Thier website doesnt explain it at all.
ive tried to contact them but didnt hear back from them.

see what you can find on the centerforce DUAL FRICTION clutch. had one in my 89 5.0, and i loved it. very, very driveable, but tough, and grabby when needed. this is what i'm gonna change to when my stock piece of crap goes out (i almost can't wait), but i've only got 16.5k on it, and i don't beat the crap outta my car, so i don't expect it to be REALLY soon. i've only really heard of the Fidanza flywheel mentioned by people. everyone says the lightweights are kinda noisy. i don't know, i think the stock flywheel might be alright, but i don't like the way the clutch works. anyone keep the stock wheel and just ditch the clutch? if so, hows that workin out?

Marcy Motorsports used to make a steel flywheel like that. I dont know if he does now or not. If so let me know because Id get in on that if you needed to get more than one person buying to have more made.
