The EA's clutch has a 3 hole mounting system, whereas the EB and onwards (4 Litre engines) had 6 mounting points for the clutch on the flywheel. The holes are already drilled even on the 3.9 Flywheel, just not threaded.

So say, you want an EB-EL XR6 clutch, have a look that it has 6 mounting points.

And this guy is smoking something, because :
1) The EF only came in 4 litre, but I guess if you did the conversion from an EA that would make sense
2) XR6's weren't there for the EA's they were S PAC's. Meaning an XR6 ckutch refers to a 4litre flywheel.

So, if you did the conversion from an EA, and you have the EA flywheel, you'll either need to get a 4 litre flywheel, or an EA clutch simple.

There is an XR6 clutch going on EBAY for like $140 or something, and $195 somewhere else, its for the whole kit, and looks good enough.


Cheers

well, if your T5 was stock, and you have a 95 EF, then you have the 6 bolt clutch... just say EB-EL clutch. or if he is a real dumb a**, say The one with 6 corners, not 3 lol.


Cheers

Ok, I just changed my clutch on an EF T5. Here's exactly what to go for:
RPM series by PBR. Get the first option. Its very drivable and grips very well.
Also, get your flywheel machined.

Don't go to Kmart. See someone who knows what they're doin.

No, its better than the xr6 clutch. I was running a heavy duty clutch and it wasn't holding up with the power going to the wheels. The clutch was giving before the tyres.

dw about my sig, thats uglybob that changes it.

Its not only that...if it doesn't slip, it doesn't wear as much so it'll last longer. I'd definately recommend it but at least go for a heavy duty.
