The Fiat 20v turbo flywheel does fit,but you need shorter bolts,the GTA clutch works well with it.
If the Autolusso kit had been around before I sourced the Fiat flywheel,I would probably have used that,even though the Fiat/GTA combo came in at less than two hundred squids(second hand flywheel,obviously!New Valeo clutch kit).
If you are planning on DIY,it aint a quick job!I used a mates garage that had a pit(that kept filling with water!)and it took a weekend to do,maybe I'm just slow . . . . . .It is all quite straightforward,but there is a lot to remove and then refit!
When you have the 'box off,lube the clutch fork bushes,it will make the clutch much nicer to use and give the hydraulics an easier time!Might as well change the front anti roll bar bushes,too if they are getting tired,as the front subframe has to be either lowered(a lot!) or removed completely(what I did for better access)to get the box out.
When it is back together,make sure the release bearing has 'clicked' into the clutch housing before you refit the slave cylinder,as it is a 'pull' type clutch and won't work otherwise. . . . . .and you may have to take the box off again to sort it out!
