building up nerve to do a 5spd conversion and have some Q's
BTW: 82 GLW w/ EA81 w/ all the bits
1) Clutch assembly, is there a preferred clutch/flywheel set up?

but didn't completely understand your reply.
use an EA81 clutch and flywheel or a basic EA82 clutch & flywheel?
and bit of grind on the bell housing.....
take a peek under half the boards rides (gallery?)
what axle/spline set ups did you guys use?? stock EA81?

EA82 clutch & flywheel, check.
I didn't see anything regarding CV/axles & splines....are the stock ea81 CVs compatable..? I thought the 5spd had a different spline count.
i got a custom set of CVs that the original 'pioneer' used on his set-up (from donor car). he also put in ea82 frt brakes. is that why he had the custom axls done. Do I have to convert the frt brakes to ea82 also to complete conversion or was that just another 'upgrade'?

I have the full time RX 5spd D/R w/ ctr dif & LSD.
I believe the splines ARE different in which I will have to go the with custom axle set up & EA82 steering knuckles & brakes.......
didn't know that there are different configurations of 5spds
Posted 24 December 2003 - 12:48 PM
EA82T trannies have 25 splines - regular are 23.

you winn also be required to use the ea82 clutch disc and pressire plate to the transmission you are using
its possible to use the ea81 flywheel, the pressure plate will bolt up either way, but the ea82 clutch disc(which you must use) may be too big for the ea81 flywheel.
search around, its all over the board. but anything you dsont find, just ask

sounds like the 4wd EA82 clutch & PP are the way to go.
Kinda confused, how is the XT6 kits & PP different?
Ideally, which is best and most compatable?

i will be using an ea82 flyeheel and pressure plate with my xt6 transmission
