Four different part numbers for the EA82 flywheels.


I seem to recall a suggestion to use a 2WD flywheel in 4WD vehicles for a lighter flywheel/zippier drive.


At least may have been EA81 info ???


Anyone compared 2 & 4WD flys? Done this performance enhancement ? Found issues ?


I am guessing if the 4WD are heavier, there is less meat to them, further distance from the box -AND a need for a longer clutch fork pivot. I have clutch issues, based around using a 2WD flywheel and its clutch from an EA82T behind EA82 on a 5MT DR 4WD.

Yet to measure installed flywheel or clutch pivot, but have found the pivots can be about 35mm and 40mm long


If I have the shorter one installed, may save me, may need to fit a 4WD flywheel. If I have the 40mm - I is in trouble if the 4WD fly no fix.

Non-turbo 2wd flywheels have a 1" diameter smaller contact face
