Use the flex plate and bolts from your old engine. Remember to use a loctite thread locker on the threads of the bolts, or they will leak oil.
And torque them up correctly to help prevent warping the face of the crank.

well autos have a flex plate instead of a flywheel. its the same idea as a flywheel but thinner and lighter. the torque converted is attached to ur gearbox and it bolts to the flex plate once the auto box is mounted into the car. hope this makes sense. its not have to swap over at all
