Anyone using the Exedy FJK1001FW Clutch/Flywheel Package?
 
The dealership is currently rebuilding my transmission (bad synchros) and I have decided to have them install a new clutch and flywheel since they already have the thing ripped apart.

After much research and forum trolling... i am leaning towards the Exedy FJK1001FW package. It is basically a stock/OEM Exedy - 07 LGT (FJK1001) clutch bundled with a (presumably) Exedy flywheel.

Exedy Catalog - http://www.exedyusa.com/catalogs/2010OECatalog.pdf
Amazon Link -

The whole package isonly $460. Has anyone installed this? I can't find any info on the type of flywheel that comes with this. Nervous.

Background - Bone stock 05 LGT Unlimited. 5MT. 85k miles.

interested in this as well as my clutch just went out 2 days ago.

Yep. Im suprised this question doesn't come up more often. Ive seen the part number referenced in a few different threads.. but haven't seen any valuable commentary. Suprising considering the value... clutch + flywheel under $500 from a respected manufacturer.

question has been kicked around and no answers. i need a new clutch fw as asll in my 05.

Well, i pulled the trigger and bought the damn thing off of Amazon. The price was too good to pass up.... $437 for clutch + firewall shipped (free 2 day shipping w/ Amazon Prime). Everything should be installed and up/running by early next week. I will report back with further details at that time.

BTW... clutch city has an actual picture of the parts included in the fjk1001fw package (http://www.clutchcityonline.com/products/15-024A.shtml). That flywheel looks really similar to the Exedy FF502 flywheel that is offered on the Fred Beans website. If so... very good deal.

flywheel... not firewall :).

i was gonna say.. why is ur clutch going through the firewall lol.

with prime, hopefully it will arrive before the end of the week. please let us know if the kit is complete and i will go ahead and pull the trigger too. pricing is half of what i was looking at from other dealers

if that is the correct part number on the clutchcity site, its even cheaper here! then again, the description doesnt include a fw. wtf.

also that part number does not appear to be made by exedy

Clutch delivered. Quick inspection looks promising. Clutch disk, pressure plate, TOB, and SM flywheel are all included. Flywheel weighs about 12 pounds..... so not quite as heavy as the 07 WRX, but some may see that as a benefit. Everything looks to be high quality for whatever that is worth. I'm quite pleased. Obviously I will know more once installed.

I use the exedy LWFW paired with a clutchmasters fx300 clutch.

I like the flywheel very much. It was recommended to me by my mechanic over the ACT, and when I was researching the 2, the exedy was way cheaper. I'm happy with the purchase.

eb50 02-23-2011 07:18 PM

this will be awesome if i can get a new clutch flywheel installed for just about a grand.

are u considering getting getting the tsk3?

TheBG 02-23-2011 10:19 PM

I probably should get the TSK but it's a little late in the game for me to order another part. Cars been in the shop for 2 weeks and this impreza loaner they gave me isn't cutting it. Had I prepared and timed things better I probably would have ordered it. But whatever... Hopefully I've bought a new WRX by the time this new TOB decides to sieze up :).

eb50 02-24-2011 03:04 PM

ordered up the same kit!

Exedy makes most OEM clutches that come in cars ... IN THE WORLD. I have semi-spectacular results with their aftermarket product line (stage 1 is way too heavy for the lowish tq rating) but I have little doubt that the oem replacements are nothing short of stellar.
