    found a kit for our celicas. however i do find it odd that it is listed for gt/st/gt-s. is that correct? even on the exedy site it just says celica. no code designation for different models. anyone know if this is a problem. i need a clutch bad. and this is a good deal if it will work. here is the lik to the item. thanks!

    i think so. got it from ebay. a clutch only specialty shop. exedy brand name. seen the same kit go for 150 not shipped. so i figure 130 shipped is damn good. now i need to get quotes and installation. woo hoo.

    I hope it works for you man - the GT-S clutches aren't the same as the ST/GT clutches. Different splines on the tranny input shaft.

    i knew they were different, i asked the guy and he said "well we have been dealing with just clutches for over 20 years. the description is accurate." i checked it out on exedyusa.com as well. same part number. so i am crossing my fingers. will take pics of the clutch as soon as it gets here. and if it is not the right one then i will definately send it back to them with a big ol thank you. i'lll drive down there myself and shove it in their face if i have to. anyways thanks for the knowledge.

    i also looked at centerforce clutch kits. it too was the same part number for the gt/st and gt-s. same everything. so i really hope this isnt an error. weird huh. but then again if you do the tranny swap for a gt-s to the gt tranny you can use the gt-s clutch if i am not mistaken.

    fuck bro, i wish i saw this post earlier. The kit is bs. Your gonna find that ur disc is not gonna fit and the throw out bearing is the wrong style. I bought the same shit for my trac, even the same price. And then they wouldn't let me return it cuz i waited over a month to tell them. Their response was, "we can have our technicions help u fit the product".

    hmmmm. shit i called the guy and he old me it would work. and i looked at the centerforce one and they said it was the same sku too. also that it was the same dimensions. well we will see. i know that there is another forum on this kit. i will bring it back up too. thanks for the look out zak, was it the same guys?

    ok so the breakdown for the clutch and install is this:

    $133.61 (exedy clutch kit)
    $346.80 (labor)

    The guys at the shop told me that I had the lower end clutch kit. I didn't realize there was one, but they could have been trying to upsell me. As soon as I told him that i worked for the local BMW cycle shop, he immediately changed his tune. It was funny. Anyways so far no problems. The only thing I wish was that it was a little stiffer. But a good clutch so far. Should last me till either I die or the car does. cheers!

    Pretty sure the splines are only different between the 3SGTE and non turbo gearboxes. I have used S54 (commonly fitted to 5SFE) gearboxes in two cars now with 3SGE clutches for SX's (Your GTS)

    thats some expensive labour, for US dollars, i can get it done for $350 AUD. i have the the EXEDY kit in my car right now! I would not reccommend it as i just needed to change my clutch the EXEDY pressure plate failed after about 14 months get a better one!!!!!!

    yeah? well if it ends up being shit, there isnt much i can do about it. no warranty on the labor, due to me bringing in my own parts. and of course only a limited warranty on the parts from exedy. if it does then i will spend the extra cash on what toyota has and possibly have it done at a different shop. i got quoted $400 from two other shops for installation. what a bitch!

    it seems to my memory that all 4g clutchs are the same except the 2s and 3sgte.
