Default Cheap Flywheels on eGay, any success stories?

I've been searching through the forums and while I've found a bunch of posts on the clutch setups being **** poor, but nobody has really chimed in too much on the flywheels in these kits.

I just bought wittyworks turbo setup for my '95, I should be pushing 200-220hp with a few other tweaks. Are these 8 pound flywheels really that bad for turbo's?

Should I go more towards a 10-11 pound flywheel that's a little more sturdy?

I plan to beat on the car, I don't drive it daily it's only for fun.

Am I better off to go this route?

I've been running the F1 flywheel from 949Racing for 10000kms and lots of track/autox use with zero issues. It shudders a bit if I don't revv it up high enough starting out but I am also running a really heavy FM2 clutch.

I had a 7 pound aluminum Fidanza wheel on my Civic and it worked just beautifully the whole year it was on my car while I had it. No news from the new owner so I guess thats a good thing.
