I have an adapter plate that hasn't been installed yet. In case you need anything measured.

What I need are the measurements from the diagram for the engine and flywheel. I got everything from the transmission side, but anyone is free to check my measurements too; I'm sure they are not perfect.

The adapter plate is 24mm.

I entered the numbers below, but I need numbers from the flywheel. If someone has the flywheel not installed or on the engine, I need the distance from the block to the crank mounting surface, which is probably the shortest distance for clearance reasons, and then from the crank mounting surface to the surface of the flywheel where the clutch disc would make contact (not where the pressure plate makes contact).

They emailed me back, but they need the thickness of the K20/24, FA20/24 and/or Kpower flywheel thickness, which is not something I have or can get anytime soon having to pull my transmission.

I don't understand why they would not already have the information on both stock flywheels. They already make clutch kits for both.

Seems like knowing the flywheel differences and the adapter plate thickness should be enough, right?

I have the Kpower steel flywheel in the box and could measure, what exact measurement do you need?

They wanted a comparison in thickness, so Iím guessing something similar to what I did with the other measurements in the picture I posted. Specifically the distance from the mounting surface to the friction surface, but I suppose it would be good to know the distance from the mounting surface to both, the friction surface of the clutch disc and to the mounting surface of the pressure plate.

Has anybody seen or used this for the swap? Would this solve any of the issues that a few people have had with the kpower water neck?

From what I've seen KPower has revised the kit and the included neck now has an outlet on the driver side of the motor

On the steel Kpower flywheel, I get 22.4-22.5mm from the mounting surface to the friction surface and 1.9mm from the friction surface to the pressure plate mounting surface.

Came across these CANChecked things today...

This thing is pretty sweet for anyone that is input (or output) starved

https://www.vadpro.com/products/canc...-bus-expansion

They also make a CAN hub with twice the ports for about what Haltech wants for theirs. FT86Club appears to block the word see-bee-dee, so replace the *** with those letters in the URL.

I wanted to get a second opinion as some of you guys went through this.

I took a spare driveshaft in to be shortened and it turns out the all the u-joints are notchy and they want to replace them all in addition to shortening, this all adds up $$$.
As a second option they said they could make it into a 1pc. I mentioned that it will see higher speeds and some of the issues others had with 1pc driveshafts but they didn't seem very concerned. This is a very reputable shop so I'm assuming they know what they are doing. I'm wondering if a steel 1pc would still exhibit that same issues some of you have seen with the AL 1pc?

* I spoke with them a second time reiterating my concerns and giving them speed estimations and they were adamant it wouldn't be an issue.
