Question Lightweight DCT Flywheel, 3D model

First post, so sorry if I posted in wrong area.

I got bored and thought about upgrading the flywheel for the DCT/DPS6 transmission. I couldn't find any aftermarket transmission parts. Probably for a good reason.

I'm still new to 3d modeling, so my models may not be accurate. I did buy a used flywheel to use as my reference.
I counted 112 teeth, counted a couple of times and labelled each tooth. So hoping it's the right amount.

So the main question to go along with this;
Would there be more cons than pros with a lightweight flywheel in the DCT transmissions?
Would it be worth the trouble?

I'm driving a 2016 2.0L DCT

OEM Flywheel:




Lightweight Flywheel:




If anyone is interested in the 3D models I can share the files. I used Sketchup (SKP), but I have an add-on to convert to STL.
