View Full Version : Clutch / Flywheel Q

05-07-2006, 12:52 AM
Okay I decided not to sell my Celica, I just <3 it to much. Anyways to the point.

I'm going to be swapping a 92t MR2 Transmission into it, and am a little confused. Do I still run a 5sfe clutch and flywheel or is it half 3sgte half 5sfe?

if your using the mr2 turbo tranny then all 3sgte stuff

Well, are you swapping just the transmission or the transmission and engine?
If your just doing the transmission, then you will need a 5SFE flywheel and pressure plate and a 3SGTE clutch disc.

Plus MR2T inner axles I believe.

Yea, just the transmission. So I have a 3sgte transmission and a 5sfe motor. I already have the axles organized, just wondering about the clutch and flywheel, since I figure while it's down I may as well get a 'better' set up.

You're positive about this alltracman? That's what I was thinking, but I want to make sure before I actually order my clutch and flywheel.

As far as flywheel/pressure plate/disc?

You will need ST185 all-trac tranny mounting hardware and shifter cables. Axles you will need MR2T inners and all-trac outers. As far as the Clutch/flywheel combo theoretically the 3SGTE clutch disc should fit on the 5SFE flywheel. Here is a pic of the 3SGTE disc on the 5SFE flywheel...


5SFE: Flywheel/pressure plate
3SGTE: Clutch Disc/Throw out bearing

What exactly are the benifits of switching to the mr2 tranny. Are gear ratios different. How would it change the the acceleration and top speed from the stock 5s tranny?

It's a stronger transmission overall, and can hold under the pressure of a 5sfte longer than the stock 5sfe 'economical based' transmission. Since the 3sgte was technically performance based, you can assume that the MR2T Gear ratios are geared more closely towards performance, rather than economy.
