Colin had a preliminary discussion with the Griffin folks, but had to cut it short as he was at the doctors office. However, it didn't sound like stock Corvette bits were a certainty. He's following up tomorrow.
Er, not quite.LS2, LS3 and LS7 clutch/pressure plate/flywheel are the same.
The LS9 is a totally different animal.
You're giving out some bad information. The LS7 has the same 6 bolt pattern as the LS1, LS6, LS2, LS3 crankshafts. The LSA and LSX crankshafts use a 8 bolt pattern and the LS9 uses a 9 bolt pattern crankshaft.Er, not quite.
The LS7 flywheel has a different bolt pattern than the LS1, LS2 and LS3. The LS7 pressure plate and clutch can be used on stock LS flywheels.
The LS9, LSA and LS3 w/Z51 dry-sump option (out of the new Grand Sports) all use a peculiar bolt pattern that is unique to that engine family.
Katech and other vendors offer a flywheel that is a bolt-on for the LS1, LS2 and LS3 engines that can utilize the LS9 clutch and pressure plate.
Hope this info is useful to anybody who wants to mix & match stock performance offerings from the GM parts bin.
Sorr about that Ken, I posted pretty late in the evening and I blame my goof on lack of sleep. :thumbsup:You're giving out some bad information. The LS7 has the same 6 bolt pattern as the LS1, LS6, LS2, LS3 crankshafts. The LSA and LSX crankshafts use a 8 bolt pattern and the LS9 uses a 9 bolt pattern crankshaft.
The LS3 dry sump crankshaft most likely uses a 6 bolt pattern as well. I cannot confirm that yet.
You can see from Katech website link that the LS7 flywheel is the same one used with all earlier models. LS9X / LS9R Flywheel -- Katech Performance Online Store
