    Hey guys, has anyone here used the ZF 530D gearbox on their 1uzfe, if so what clutch , flywheel and pressure plate did ye use? I have heard to use a 530D gearbox , pressure plate and clutch , along with a re-drilled 3sgte MR2 flywheel but I'm not fully sure if this will work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :nod:

    Drift moto do custom flywheels with an E34 M5 clutch, which is fine if you have lots of $$ lol. Looking for the cheapest option available.

    I had a re drilled Mr2 flywheel but finding a clutch to take the power was the best part of 2k. I had a custom 2jzgte flywheel done.

    Everywhere is expensive for 1uz

    yep its the torque more than the HP once you sort the cams and a quick P&P just kills the clutch and the boxes :D

    The cheapest way is to find a flywheel specialist send them your ring gear and flex plate or something with the crank holes in then tell them you want it for a what ever clutch you want its still going to be £300 odd

    just make sure you future proof it i.e. if you think you will boost Mr2 clutch might not be great. a few fair have boosted to 500hp on a stock/near stock motor.

    Thanks for the help man. For the moment, I'll be staying N/A , but down the line I might turbo it. Probably would be best to get the flywheel that has the cheapest uprated clutch available now, rather than down the line.
