Default flywheel material and type

I am putting together a 540 engine that has an internal balance crank and rotating assembly. I have to buy a 168 tooth neutral balance fly wheel. Can I use a aftermarket automotive manual transmission flywheel? what material is better cast,steel, billet steel? Will bravo drive coupler bolt up on automotive flywheel? I have a neutral flywheel but its for TRS setup.Starter ring gear on wrong side. Thanks for any info.

I bought some real nice billet units from Teague (if I remember right) Balance was less that 1/2 a gram

the bravo coupler uses the same blot pattern as a gm 11 inch clutch so yes you can use a automotive flywheel.

I've seen some of those flywheels that were made for the ring gear to be able to go on both sides... not the case on yours? The Teague piece looks nice.

I was hoping I could but not enough to back up ring gear after machining.The wheel I have looks like a Teague also
