Default clutch and flywheel what works with what?!?!

so FWD flywheels are different from AWD flywheels right? are you able to use a AWD for a FWD car? does this mean you'll need a AWD clutch ? I have a JDM EJ20G clutch and flywheel. would this set up work in a FWD impreza? what throw out bearing should be used? if it even works...

Negative.

One major difference; the input shaft or whatever that the TO bearing goes over. The FWD one has a smaller diameter, so you wouldn't be able to use the AWD clutch disk, and then the FWD clutch disk has a smaller diameter.

so wait... if the input shalf is smaller how is an AWD clutch disc would be able to fit over the input shalf?

so couldn't you use an AWD flywheel along the clutch with just the FWD throw out bearing?

Sorry, I should have been more specific.

The part of the shaft with the teeth that slide into the clutch disc, that is also smaller.

the clutch disc has the teeth on it unless your talking about the pressure plate?

No, the piece in the center of the clutch with the teeth is a different size between the FWD and AWD.

I know this but the only thing that teeth in the middle affects is the friction disc the pressure plate has nothing to do with the those teeth

Yeah, but the disks have a different diameter because the pressure plates also cover a different area, so one disk won't work with the other pressure plate.

Clutches are cheap, get the right parts... as much fun as tearing the transmission back out again is...
