Quick Question

Asked this is the driveline section already but no one seemed to know, so hoping someone here knows.

I'm planning on converting my car to manual soon and need to know whether the i6 4.0L clutch will fit on a EA flywheel. The reason being is that looking at the Daikan parts list for clutches, the 3.9L and 4.0L have different clutch sizes, the 4L clutch being 15mm bigger.

Are the flywheels the same on EA's and EBII onwards, and will the pedal be softer/more grippier if I get the bigger clutch if they are? What did you fella's put in your EA's, the 4L clutch or the 3.9L one and hows it perform?

Re: Quick Question

What's it going onto? Heavily worked or just a warm motor? In reality the factory PBR clutch grips perfectly well, even as the smaller version. I wouldn't bother using the aftermarket unit myself until I started getting into serious headwork and cams, even then the factory unit seems to do well.
I do not believe the larger clutch will bolt onto the early flywheel. You could tap some holes easily enough though.

Re: Quick Question

Stick to the one for your engine.. unless you have a really good reason to do otherwise, theres no point making more work for yourself. If you want a clutch will more "grip", go for something heavier, or a button clutch (just don't ever expect to be able to drive in a parking lot without either spinning the wheels, or stalling it, with a button clutch )

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way

Re: Quick Question

I ran an EA flywheel and clutch behind an EB 4.0L with no worries. I think you'll have dramas mixing them up though. From memory the EA clutch was a 3 bolt version and the EBII was a 6 bolt version.
