      I was looking for a clutch for the R and i was asking SACHS a few questions and he asked me for the engine code, i gave him CRZA and he never heard of it and it wasnt in his system...so he asked me for my chassis code and he told me the engine code was CDLC.

      ETKA groups CDLC, CDLF, CDLG and CZRA together, esp when looking for a long block, as an example.
      But, we have the CZRA motor, at least I do, based on my hatch sticker info.

      Edit:

      As I posted correctly in post 2, it's CRZA, not CZRA (age)

      That's too funny. I'm working with SRE right now as we'll and they wanted to know my engine code for the same reason. You going with a kit from them?

      Webcrawlr:

      I was looking at a kit from them because i really don't want to have another stock clutch put in only to have problems in the future again, so i might as well get something stronger to handle more power!

      Exact same boat as me. Are you thinking about re-using the OEM flywheel you already have or using a new OEM flywheel?

      Im actually thinking of using a lightened flywheel but im not 100% sure. Im not really worried about extra noise/chatter. Im going to keep my stock setup until it starts getting worse (its slipping) then i will upgrade. Im completely stock engine wise. Once the upgraded clutch is in I will start with engine upgrades!
