Cool Dyno Wheel Weight

Hi, so I am finishing up my Gen 3 Build with Wesico pistons, K1 rods, and a cheap Turbonitics T3/T4 57 trim. But when doing research for buying a lightweight flywheel, I have heard some people saying that they have experienced longer spool time due to less load. So I was going to do an experiment when I go to the dyno next month and see if I could get a quicker spool and/or higher WHP with my stock ss wheels (20 lbs.) vs a Heavier set. So now for my question, I was wondering if anyone knows any cheap wheels for the LNF that weigh a crap ton?

That's gonna be harder on your axels and trans. Not a great idea with a stock trans.

Why not just vary the dyno load? Must be a dynojet?

ACT makes a lightweight steel flywheel. Its a bit heavier then the aluminum ones, just like a pound or 2. Its what I used, No change in spool that I can tell. Costs less too.
