I don't spell well

Default 6spd swap - flywheel / clutch dust shield mod?

I wanted to see what you guys think about doing this:






Before cutting the bottom of the plate, I couldn't get the clutch plate on. Now it fits not problem and the shield doesn't look like it's gonna hit anything.

But I wanted to run this by you guys because if for some reason it doesn't work... I don't want to pull the tranny again to get to the shield to get it off.

What do you guys think?

Morning bump...

I forgot to ask. Does this plate rest on the outside of the tranny? Meaning when I slide the 6mt in, I need to make sure that this plate isn't being bent inward towards the input shaft?

Uh, at this point I would just swap it with an STi one. Once the tranny is on theres just about no going back. I bent mine out of the way when I did my swap and after about a week it started rubbing at weird times followed by all the time. Sounded like a steak knife factory under the car. It makes the kind of noise that makes your butt pucker up until you figure out whats going on. I had to go under the car twice with a prybar to bend the crap out of it. Much easier to swap it out now than deal with it later.

It fills in the cutout in the bottom of the tranny like it did on your 5mt. But the 6mt has a different shape/size.

Thanks. My other parts were shipped 3 days ago and I didn't feel like paying $10 shipping for a $8 part and delay the swap another week while I wait for everything to get here.

But I guess patience is key with these things

I just called some dealers and nobody withing a 50 mile radius has the part... so can I get away with mod or do I just need to wait for it to come in

Edit:
Do I really need this thing? I noticed in the master swap thread, the shop who installed the tranny just left this piece off.

You can get away with it. Just make sure you have enough room. If that gets popped up it'll catch the clutch plate and will do some damage.

Good Point, I right now I have about 1/4" gap between the clutch bolts and the plate. I'll JBWeld a metal piece between the gaps to make sure that it doesn't flex while driving and hit anything. Thanks for the help.
