the clutch will depend on what car your flywheel is from?

ea and eb1 has a 9.5" clutch with 3 bolts holding the pressure plate to the flywheel..

eb2-au has a 10" clutch with 6 bolts holding the pressure plate to the flywheel...

Correct, 6 bolt = 6 bolts holding onto the pressure plate.

6 bolt flywheel:

3 bolt flywheel:

So, yes, order an EA clutch unless you can get a 6 bolt flywheel.

Cheers,

Evan.

I see the Exedy clutch cover has only 3 holes in it...PBR RPM's have more holes ( for a 3 bolt )....I drilled and tapped my EA flywheel an extra 3 holes to use 6 bolts on a 3 bolt cover.

Don't forget a new spigot bearing for the crank too.
