Hey guys! I searched, but I couldn't figure out really waht to search for.

Anyway, I've got an LT1 from a 95, and I want to put it in my 92. I noticed, however, that the clutch at the very least is different. Is there something different in the engine that requires the different clutch? They didn't change to internal balance or anything, right? I should be ok to do this?

Thanks!

That is a good question. My uneducated guess is NO, no balance changes at all. The opti spark is different on the newer model and you may have some different electric connectors that you need to swap from one engine to another.

I think it will work fine.

Keep us posted.

Are you sure they are both original clutches? if someone replace a clutch along the way with aftermarket that can be why they look different.

Oh, I wasn't very clear, was I? :smack

Ok, the full story is my 92 needs a new clutch, and an engine workover to be right as rain. I found a 95 LT1, a shop motor that's been started up, but not run. Looking around for clutches, there's a difference in the 92/93 parts and the 94-96 "Kits" at places like Eckler's, or Centerforce, but it's difficult ot tell what the difference is. I did see something about not being able to use the later version with the dual mass flywheel, but I can't seem to find that reference again.

So I'm at an impass as to what year kit I buy. I'm assuming that the flywheel on back, etc. will bolt right up, which would mean I'd use a 92 clutch. But assuming ain't knowing.
