I'm using Neil Chance BT and want to eliminate any future thrust issues. I bolted flywheel to crank and put dial indicator few different places..I'm getting anywhere from .050 to .100 runout. I don't know the brand of wheel but it's aftermarket steel and heavy. i then bolted converter to wheel about same thing.
I know the converter moves alot over .100 when running because of wear marks and shims used. The snout moves freely in crank. I know if i buy a new wheel that is flat and the converter goes to flexing i'm sure it's going to warp it again under heat. Should i worry about replacing flywheel? If so what brand for SBF.. Don't need anything fancy looking or high dollar

You should be focusing on the area that bolts up to the converter pads, not the gear. .100" is horrible. Try to bend it straight with a prybar (sounds like a hack job but works) If it won't straighten , move onto something else.
You should be able to get it within .020" and thats acceptable.
