Flywheel alternative

Is anyone aware of an alternative for a rover engine flywheel? Some thing American made or aftermarket? ie. like replacing the $300 alternator with a $80 more powerful and cheaper AC Delco. I have the D90 apart and thought about using something bulletproof and new vice something difficult to come by and questionabl strong. I mean it's a Buick 215 afterall.

???...I'v been working on LRs since 1994 and have never seen or heard of a flywheel failing for any reason. What about it makes it questionably strong that you feel you need to change it? I've never had occasion to research alternatives. If yours is damaged in some way and you can't find one you like better, I've got a couple of extras kicking around here leftover from diesel swaps and parted out cars.

I need a flywheel, don't look forward to shelling out $500 to RN or AB or shipping it from UK. Just wanted to know if there is a better way. Do you have one that would work on a 3.5 V8? If so how much and could you send it this week? Thanks.
