6 or 8 bolt flywheel

I'm going to be purchasing a new flywheel in the near future when replacing my clutch. I have a 97 gt. How do I tell if I have a 6 or 8 bolt?

If you're still using the original engine, than you have a 6-bolt flywheel. Only the Cobra's had 8-bolt flywheels from 96-98. Every GT used a 6-bolt in that year range.

Hope this helps!

My pleasure buddy!

Did you already have a clutch in mind? How much power do you plan on making in the near future? If you need any assistance finding the perfect setup for your Mustang and budget, I'd be happy to help. Just let me know!

I was thinking of the exedy 350 stage one. I don't plan on going FI anytime soon so I think the stage one should do.

That's exactly what I would have recommended after finding out you're sticking N/A for a while. The Exedy 350 is the perfect choice for a bolt-on GT like yours. It will easily hold to your power level and some. Plus, the pedal feel is still reasonable for a daily driver.

Exedy makes excellent clutches. I'm confident you'll be pleased with the 350!
