Default looking for custom made 85-89 3800 flywheel

Hello, can anyone please tell me if they have or know of a flywheel that can be made to fit a 85 through 89 3800? I'm building a 3800 to put a 5spd getrag to and am in need of a 6 bolt flywheel for it. I know fiero guys that have had them made but I need one that already made. Please let me know... Thanks, Chris.

Chris.. maybe something from a firebird? IIRC those years could have had a 3.8 and a stick.

Or a Holden Commedore.

Here'* what this guy did:
"The Transmission used in this conversion is a Getrag 282 5-speed from an 88 Beretta. The flywheel used with the Series 1 engine was a 2.8L welded, redrilled and balanced to match the SC3800 engine. Now with the Series 2 engine, a Camaro flywheel was modified to work with the front wheel drive transmission."

Cool find, that 2.8L deal. Chris, call me. I have at least one or two of these. How'd you go with Fiero store and the 5-speed parts?
