Default flywheel weight?

Trying to decide how light to go with the flywheel (mx5 BP 1.8).
Anyone use a lightened flywheel and what weight? How does the engine respond and idle?

Not a topic I recall seeing on here. (may get more info on the MX5 forums)

Is your car already on the road and feeling unresponsive? if not I would save the time and expense and see how it is once built.

Not built yet, just starting.
No expense involved as will be machining the flywheel myself. Just no sure how far to go and still keep it usable for roads. Around 5kg is what seems to be the norm for lightened but no real info on how the engine behaves at that weight.
