New can of worms!

Here's a question to maybe get these guys off the big engine OPINION 
scandal of recent list fame.  

I appearantly have a really big (ie heavy) flywheel on my car.  Is there 
any aftermarket stuff available?  Any way to lighten the stock one fairly 
reliably?  Anybody done it - is it worth it?

My car's hard to quick shift and even harder to heel-toe because it takes 
so long for the revs to fall or jump.  Any other possible solutions?

The GL5's have the 016 manual transmission (I think).  Isn't this one 
used in some of the 4k's?

I checked the FAQ and the archives and didn't find anything.  You might 
correctly call me ignorant on the subject of flywheels - I've never held 
one or seen it on a drivetrain, but I'd like to.  I do know that it's 
causing an inconvenience in my driving style right now.
