Question G50 vs 930 flywheel question

I am curious to know if the clutches are interchangeable between the 930 and G50's?

I have the flywheel, disc and pressure plate from both, but the one that came with my 930 engine is aluminum and the G50 is steel. I'm not sure if they can be swapped out for each other? It's a stretch I know with the G50 being a hydraulic actuated throwout bearing and I am sure the splines for the input shaft are different.

Any input is appreciated.

Splines are the same you could juggle and fit either but you are probably going to need more clutch. The easiest is to go with a Kennedy G-50 Stage 2 with a sprung 930 disc. the Kennedy units are aluminum and saves huge amount of rotating weight. If you just want to test her out and work out the bugs, run the G-50 and you won't have to change around parts til the later upgrade, which would be a bolt in. The stock G-50 PP can handle 425+ ft/lbs, so it might tie you over for a little bit.

My car has the G50 clutch and PP but the flywheel was custom made by Patrick Motorsport. Well at least that is what they told me when I ordered my light weight clutch, PP, and flywheel from them.

You did not mention if your G50 is shortened or not, or the year of the 930 (1976-77 short or 1978-88 long).

I am assuming that the 930 AL clutch assembly is LONG and the G50 is 100% factory taken from my 87 donor car.

I was planning on buying a heavy duty clutch for the G50 and a billet side cover, but upon inspection of my engine, I noticed the AL clutch assembly and would like to use it if possible.

Adapting the low profile 930 pressure plate is more trouble that it is worth.
What is your power & torque target?
Since Sachs discontinued their 1987-89 G50 aluminum Sport pressure plate, the KEP is the simplest lightweight conversion out there right now. Standard 930 spring hub disc, G50 bearing & guide tube.
You can use a G50 flywheel, 1989 930 or 1987-89 Carrera. If you plan on running an aftermarket EFI system and triggering off the flywheel, machining timing teeth onto a 1989 930 flywheel is easy, we do it all the time.

The cat has about 420 RWHP with an Electromotive Tec3 full EFI, twin plug with a crank sensor on it already.

Looks like I will just go with a good G50 clutch then. Too bad though, the 930 parts I have are in good shape still.
