The factory 2.0 had a dual mass so i decided to use an Exedy OEM replacement single mass that is a good bit lighter that that hunk of dual mass garbage. It added up to be about 9lbs lighter than factory....

Note : The spec clutches you buy will not fit the Exedy 2.3L flywheel.
They will fit the factory(flywheel) only, the clutch seems to be too big!
Spec is trying to fix this issue, since you cant machine our flywheels.
They will match your clutch with whatever flywheel choose to you have.

Very nice parts man, I myself am dealing with the flywheel in my 03 2.3l MTX75.

Did you originally replace the a dual mass flywheel with a single piece flywheel?

And if so, could you recommend some good conversion kits for my 03 2.3l? I have the DM flywheel, and I am looking to replace it with a single piece, no serous HP or anything, just a conversion kit. Know any good one's for less then $527?

I found this one> http://www.phoenixfriction.com/p-237...-23l-8-78.aspx < but it seems a little high to me on pricing?

That is a good deal if your not looking for an upgraded clutch. Thats the same Flywheel (exedy) that i have and its slightly lighter than the Dual mass.

Cool, thanks man. Hey the only other thing I need to know is, whats up with shims? Am I going to need them behind the flywheel?

This kit says no modifications needed?

you should not need anything else, i never heard anyone shimming the flywheel...I would not recommend doing that at all.

Exhaust

Just thought i would update a bit, I decide to remove my Cutout setup and finally get a exhaust. Though having a Saleen car my center exhaust had to go in favor of a turn down. The Exhaust is a Trubenz 2.5.



I also decided to upgrade my turbo in the near future to a GT28RS.
I got everything ready to install but im enjoying the car so much after a long year of building that im saving something for later. Plus i really dont need to upgrade being that i already burn my friends LOL.

I plan on blacking out the lower part of the kit with vinyl but this is how she stands now.

LOL, me too! It sounded beastly but since the flange is attached to the DP and im preparing for a upgrade i decided to remove it.

Sorry man it's promised to Turbo Turtle. He asked for it about a week ago.
