I'm finally getting around to doing my 3800sc/F23 swap. I haven't been able to find the link to the thread for clutch, spacer, axles, etc. It's going in an 87 SE. Can someone point me to the correct link?

Stock axles still work use a Camaro flywheel machined down to .840 get a good clutch and use the HTOB spacer .250 thick, and an adapter for the clutch hydraulic line. Then make up some mounts and shifter brackets and that is it for the tranny portion of this swap

Thanks for the info. I bought a flywheel and had it machined. I seem to remember that the Spec II clutch was the most desirable choice. Have mounts made. Where can I get the spacer? I also remember something about having to have shift cables made up. Is this correct? To avoid asking a lot more already answered questions, I would still like to get some links to threads. Thanks again.

If you want an opinion on clutches, I have the SPEC Stage II on a turbo 3.4 set up and it works pretty well. However, for the 3800 SC Series II or III I would suggest using a SPEC Stage 3 plus. It is very streetable and holds the extra hp better than the SPEC Stage II (IMHO). I do have this clutch on a 3800 SC Series II engine and will eventually install it on my 3800 SC Series III engine when the current one dies.

Thanks to everyone for the info. I did have the flywheel balanced when I had it machined. The links are what I needed to answer some questions. I am swapping from auto to manual (ugh). But I have a manual car to rob parts from. I will need a 5 spd shifter though, right? Don't have one of those.
