    I have a lightened, turned, and balanced flywheel for the 86 turbo engine but can I use any of the other n/a clutch components for now? A guy at work will help me and said it will only take about 2 hours to swap in a new turbo PP and Clutch. I just wanna see if it will work or do I need to wait (again) to get the money for the turbo stuff?

    Match them up - I don't think they'll fit, though.

    I didn't have any luck When I tried the same exact thing.
    Also if you use the turbo flywheel you have to use the turbo clutch and if you use an N/A flywheel you have to use an N/A clutch. The surfaces and discs are different sizes.

    Ok, that is what I was wondering. I cant match them up b/c the n/a clutch is still in the car. Guess I better get these last things. Finally I am 95% done.

    Don't use the NA clutch in a turbo car even if u have the flywheel and clutch, they won't hold with boost. Get a clutch that is made for the turbo car.
