Morning all, I am in the process of taking my power glide out of my street and strip car and changing over to a DCT. My inspiration is the e30 bmw in Sweden, truly incredible.

My issue I’m a little stuck on is do I in fact need the duel clutch fly wheel at all, or can I just couple the dct to the flex plate I have ?

Can I have the benefits of this and the down falls, IE; possible down falls, it’s a street and strip car so I’m not fussed on drivability comfort.

Cheers in advance

Mate this sounds awesome. What kind of car is it ? The best person to answer your question is probably @Nisse Järnet
Hello mate,

It a 1965 XP falcon with a 2jz and a glide currently, Ive been wanting to ditch the converter for a while nd then learned about the potential of the mighty dct.

I have now got the coupler all made up from billet with the dct spline, I also have the template made for the adaptor plate and just need to have it cut from 12mm plate.

You’re either Ausie or Kiwi ?SHouldve guessed by the avatar....
Any updates?
Wrong guess I’m afraid mate, I’m born and breed.

It’s coming on ok, should all be in the car within the month, coupling is now back and the adaptor is being cut, just the management to sort out. I know your thinking how the xp? I think 1 of 3 here lol
