Exclamation Aftermarket steel flywheel options

Im looking for a steel single mass flywheel for my 330Ci 5spd. Im looking for to get as close to oem weight as possible since im trying to avoid chatter and idle dip/stall issues associated with light weight flywheels. I was going to order the rogue engineering performance clutch/ steel flywheel kit but the flywheel is on backorder and I need a new clutch asap. My car is stage II supercharged so oem is not an option. Please chime in if you know of any other manufactureres who offer a steel flywheel for 5spd.

Something comparable to this would be ideal, slightly lighter than stock but steel.

UUC doesn't have what you want?

And how about Turner?

Turner installed a UUC steel flywheel and M5 OEM clutch in my 330ci. This flywheel is lighter than OEM but the whole package is only minimally lighter. I do have some gear clatter in neutral with the clutch released but only on hot days. I'm Ok with it! You might want to check out UUC's new dual clutch setup?

It's not compatible with a sprung hub clutch though so probably not something you want on a street driven car. Unlike most other JB Racing flywheels, this one also doesn't have a replaceable friction surface. I had considered this some years ago but decided against it for these reasons.

And for those who may be wondering, I've been running a stock clutch and flywheel with the ESS TS2+ SC'er for 4 years and 60k+ miles now. FI doesn't automatically mean that you need a clutch/flywheel upgrade.
