    Sounds awesome!!

    You could try CG Motorsport for the clutch/flywheel. I sorted a deal with them a while back which might still be on, it's £100 off for UKsaabs & VXROL members so £650 plus delivery, might be back up to £750 now though. They do both the 666 organic and 777 6 paddle kits which includes a heavy duty cover and SMF. I've got the 777 kit on mine, no real issues and it's holding the torque fine, bit grabby in 1st, some clutch chatter at idle but appart from that you'd struggle to tell if there's a paddle clutch fitted. Worth a call anyway. I looked at a few clutch options for mine but SPEC stage 4 plus SPEC flywheel was around £1,200 so went with CG instead.

    Try Martin93t on here for the 550's he's the uk distributor for JZW.

    What's the difference between the z28 and a28 cranks? I have a Z28 engine that I stripped for spare parts (sensors and that) to use on my a28 in the car.

    I'm guessing worst case I'd be able to just swap out the cranks?

    I was tempted to get a LY7 crank from the Cadillac CTS (3.6 version of ours) as it has a longer stroke so new rods and that crank will increase engine capacity to 3.2 which I basically what the Aussies have with their 3.2 holden engine

    I figure if I end up going to do the internals that'll be the time I'll do it. As it makes sense to me
