The amount of compression braking is a matter of engineering not a flywheel weight. You may increase it minimally by upping the compression ratio of the motor. You'll get use to it over time. The killer brakes should help make up for the lack of compression braking.

Flywheel weight won't affect it much one way or other unless you make a really big change in it. Are you talking about an '06?

If anyone hears of a flywheel weight made for the '06, I'd like to know who has it!
