no you can't, we don't have a flywheel or a clutch. we have something similar, and i'm not sure what the technical name of it is, but the answer is no thumbsup

you don't have a replaceable flywheel and clutch in an automatic...you have a flex-plate and torqe converter...the flex-plate is spun by the starter the same way a flywheel is in a manual...they both attach at the crank...and when you go with a lighter flywheel on a manual you go through the RPM's a lot faster. Now...a clutch is designed to wear out on a manual so that you don't wear out the gears and bearings and such...they are made to drive harder than an automatic...the automatic has what is called a torque converter an determines how high the car idels at so when you push the gas you are in a certain rev-range...a higher stall torque converter is the performance part you are looking for...it will cause your car to idle at around 2500 - 3000 rpm ( a racing converter )..so that when you let off the brake and push the throttle you are already in the meat of the GT torque curve, and have crazy launches...there you have it...without flaming...hope this helps thumbsup thumbsup

Auto trannys have many clutches, but do not serve the same purpose as they do in manuals. They have flywheels, but not to the same extent as in a manual.

Swapping it out would be pointless.
