Hi.. I'm going to plan on Skeet's wagon needing a clutch and will be buying a kit soon.
His wagon is carbureted.. will I get a stronger clutch if I order one for a turbo? Or are all EA82 clutches pretty much the same?

To my knowledge there are 3 EA82 clutches.

2WD (smallest in diameter will need a different flywheel to upgrade to 2wd turbo)
2WD Turbo (same diameter as 4WD/4WD Turbo but the dampening springs are different, Pressure plate maybe the same as 4wd/4wd turbo.)
4WD/4WD turbo

There is one other "factory" clutch set up that will work
The XT6 setup
most parts store books list it as the same as the EA82T setup but I have heard the factory pp is stonger

no Andy it will just grab the clutch disc better and in the long run be the ticket for your "race mods"
