In posts by Kale and others, it's my impression the carbon twin disc is rated at something like 900 lb-ft and the triple disc carbon at 1100 lb-ft. If this is the case, how will the flywheel bolts referenced work in clutches with such high torque ratings?93HRDTOPTT said:Just put it back together the way it comes. There should be a paint line on the assembly that will come off,so be careful not to remove the line before installation. Just line up the marks and reassemble it in the trans. Also you will need different flywheel bolts if you didn't get them already. Go to your local toyota dealership and get flywheel bolts for a 2001-2005 celica GTS. they work great. they are tapered just like the factory supra bolts just shorter. No one told me about the bolts and when the mechanic went to install the stock flywheel the bolts bottomed out and were WAY to long!
I have the OS Giken quad disc and it holds very well, but I've sheared flywheel bolts that come with the clutch twice now, once on the dyno (one bolt out of eight) and once on the road going real hard (sheared six of eight bolts this time!) I have SPE-spec flywheel bolts that appear to be doing the job quite well at present, but not enough time has passed.
On the dyno, I've put down as much as 839 lb-ft and that's with tire spin and getting out of it early. On the road, of course, there is even more load; hence, my questions about the Celica GTS flywheel bolts. TIA,
