Question 180sx sr20de clutch question

First off, I've searched high and low for this, for the past 3 days. I have an n/a sr20de engine from a 1996 180sx type s, and the sr transmission and bellhousing it came with from the factory. I'm swapping this setup into a 1989 s13 fastback. Upon separating the engine and transmission, I realized I'm still rocking the oem stock clutch and flywheel. It's the 225mm flyeheel, and I can't find any stateside vendors for a new clutch to fit it. I translated the relevant fsm pages from Japanese and found that the clutch from the ca18det has the same specs as the sr20de. I know I could put the larger det flywheel and clutch on my setup, but being n/a, the extra rotating mass would hinder my acceleration. Does anyone know if the ca18det clutch and pressure plate works with the 225mm sr20de flywheel? Or should I just bite the bullet and get a lightweight 240mm sr20det flywheel to make life easier in the future?

the CA friction disc is the same but I think the NA-SR cover plate has different mounting holes than the CA clutch cover.

I would just fit a lightweight SR20DET flywheel and clutch.
