If you have the manual, you don't have a flex plate.

If you have a flex plate, where would you bolt the flywheel?

The flex plate goes between the crankshaft and torque converter; the flywheel is what's used on manuals.

If you've got a 5 speed, you don't need a flex plate - the clutch pressure plate bolts directly to the flywheel, and if you have a flywheel with 8 notches you're all set. The flex plate is used only for bolting up the torque converter on an automatic transmission.
