You can't use the 5s fly wheel, you will need to the 3s fly wheel and pressure plate and the 5s clutch disk.

^ ding. contact southbendclutch they can make you a 3sgte pressure plate with 5s tranny splines. all this for free! (well conversion anyway) the clutch itself is like 300buxs but its a good one!

ok i understand now, have to use 3s pressure plate cause im using the 3s flywheel and 5s clutch disc cause 5s gearboxs have 20 splines where as gt4 gearbox has 21 splines...

Tell me if I'm wrong, but he will need the 5SFE throw-out bearing too.

You are correct.

if using the gt tranny with the 3sgte motor, you will need:
5sfe disk (or a custom made 3sgte disk, with the splines for the 5sfe tranny)
5sfe throwout bearing
5sfe alignment tool
3sgte pressure plate
3sgte flywheel (or just get your stock one resurfaced)

if you are going to use an mr2 turbo tranny, then all you need to do is buy a clutch kit for a 90-93 turbo mr2.

be carefull when buying clutch disks for the 5sfe tranny. a stage 1 disk for the 5sfe is not the same thing as a stage 1 disk for the 3sgte. so if you get something like a stock oem clutch or a ACT street disk, it probably will not hold the power you need to put down.
if you call up a company like Spec or Clutchmasters and tell them about your project, they can make you a custom disk that can hold the power you will make and have the correct spline count that you need.

Thank me later. :eek: :) Good luck man, that should cover anything you needed to know.
