Do you have a manual transmission or an automatic?

I’ve never heard of an aluminum flywheel/flex plate for an automatic transmission.

Aluminum flywheels are used to replace the steel flywheels in a manual transmission setup because the steel flywheels are usually SO heavy.

BECAUSE THEY DONT EXIST!. the teeth on our flexplates weigh more than the plate itself.
