thanks and if i buy a clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel from a 87 turbocoupe would it work with a 88tc engine with my 92 2.3 mustang tranny? thanks and i can use my 2.3 tranny from my 92 mustang for the swap right? and the 88 tc engine is from a auto car if it matters thanks alot
im going to be ordering the spec stage 3 clutch from you sometime soon. Im using the stock tranny from my 92 mustang, but the engine from the 88 TC. The Turbocoupe is an automatic car. Could i still use this flywheel or could i use the one from my mustang motor? or direct me to a nice one. ALso when ordering the clutch should i buy it for the turbocoupe? thanks

You definitely can't use the auto flywheel. Thats just a thin plate with teeth to engage the starter and to bolt the torque converter to the engine.
The manual transmission cars had a few different size clutches. They were really close though, to the point you actually have to measure the difference. The easiest thing and what I've always done is find one for a turbocoupe used. Have it machined flat even if it looks good or wasn't run much. Then the new clutch will be breaking in on a nice flat new surface.
The 2.3 trans is fine. Its about all I've ever used.

Yeah if you look on the product page with the clutches there are only 3 options for each stage. The only one that will work is the svo/tc clutch. Stinger made it easy. Pick your power level and youre set to order.
All of the turbo clutches use the same pressure plate bolt pattern so as long as you buy a clutch kit and not try to piece something together, you won't have to worry about the two different disc sizes that came stock.
