Hi all.
Looking at fitting a light weight EB-AU v8 alloy flywheel (neutral balance) into my EF I6.
Does anyone know if the 6cyl clutch will work, or do I need to use a v8 clutch?
Or are they the same?
Thanks.

If you do that, the bellhousing won't fit !

What do you mean? They both have a 157 tooth ring gear. Yella Terra flywheel is listed to fit both 5.0 Windsor and 4.0 sohc 6. Why would the bellhousing not fit?

Cheers Troyman.
Didn't realise the ba flywheel would fit though, that's good to know.
