Clutch

Just finished putting in my ACT clutch and Fidanza flywheel, and let me tell you what a difference. Not only does it rev extremely fast but the acceleration is like 100 time better than stock. If you have the money to perform these modifications then this is the top mod I would recommend. thumbsup

Don't think those clutches fit on a european celica.

Because the GTS has a different clutch. And an european GT has the same clutch as an USA GTS. No?

Everywhere I look all clutches I can find are for both the GT and the GTS. So either way, that should fit, now all I need to know is the flywheel.

Anyone any ideas?

I have had my Exedy Clutch and pressure plate set in for 2 months. And it does make a huge difference in shift change. I love it.

Fidanza makes a 8.5lb flywheel for the GT and a 9lb flywheel for the GTS

How hard was the install? I have the fidanza flywheel and a new OEM clutch sitting in my bedroom waiting to be installed. I don't want to spend $300 if i don't have to. Any details you could give me would be great!

Install was very difficult. If you dont know ALOT about cars then I would recommend having someone else do it. If you do decide to do it yourself make sure you have another person help you cause its hard as hell to get the transmission aligned all by yourself.
