FlexPlate Question

Hi guys,

Done a Search but unable to find answer to this

Can you use the N/A Flexplate and Starter Motor on a VLT Auto Transmisison?

Cheers, Joe

both flywheels/flex plate are the same!

manuals are different, but you can modify an NA one to fit the turbo flywheel!

listen to poida24. a flywheel is for a manual . it has a surface area for the clutch plate to contact.
a flex plate is for an auto. it has bolt holes for the front half of the torque converter to bolt up to
they are two very different things believe me!

OK,

The VL Automatic Non-Turbo and Turbo and Non-Turbo Manual use the same starter.

The VL Manual Turbo uses a different starter, because it uses a larger flywheel.
