So I'm still having a slight misunderstanding when it comes to the dual mass setup. Someone please shed light upon my situation



If I purchased this clutch

http://www.frsport.com/ACT-NS1-XTR6-...T_p_15134.html
or
http://www.frsport.com/ACT-NS1-HDR6-...ET_p_1422.html

would I then have to purchase a new flywheel or will this be a direct bolt onto the dual mass?

I'm trying to prepare to replace my clutch in my car before it goes. (S15 Spec R with a 6MT). I just want to buy the right things once instead of back and forth'n it. I've been reading on this but I still cant grasp the concept of the correct setup on whether clutches are specifically designed for dual mass vs single mass.

"Clutch Disc and Pressure Plate. Any clutch kit for the 5MT will work, but if one is using the OEM S15 Dual-Mass Flywheel, then feel free to get an unsprung clutch kit, even though this may be costly. Sourcing a new OEM replacement clutch kit is rather difficult to find. You can use a sprung clutch kit on the Dual-Mass flywheel, but the dampening will be overkill and shifting between gears may feel sloppy. "

I've contacted FRSport and they were also unsure whether this would work. (Even though is says its 5 or 6spd compatible in their notes.)

Help would be much appreciated.

Like they say, get an unsprung clutch disc since you're using the dual mass flywheel. That's all.

This doesn't answer my question what so ever.

It does, sorta. Either of those clutch kits will work with the dual mass flywheel. The diameter of the disc and the mount points of the pressure plate are all the same. There are no physical differences between the 14 and 15 clutch apart from the 14 ones have springs in the friction plate to absorb harsh loads. S15's don't 'need' this as the dual mass fly does the same job but fitting a S14 clutch to a S15 will not be detrimental at all.

Personally (just an opinion of a guy on the internet), I'd get rid of the dual mass flywheel and find a good lightweight flywheel. It will need to be S15 specific due to the flywheel being physically thicker than the S13/S14 one. If converting to a single mass lightweight flywheel, then you'd probably want to consider a sprung clutch (ie a normal SR clutch kit available).

Yep, just get an aftermarket flywheel with the specific offset for the s15 transmission, and then you can use any s13/s14 aftermarket clutch.
