Default w58 with 1jz clutch help?

I have 1jz sc300 with a w58 tranny, I look everywhere with a correct answer but with no luck, for flywheel replacement, so i got my hands on used 1jz flywheel, ordered the bolts from drifmtion and because I am in tight budget, I found this clutch and was wondering if it will mate the 1jz flywheel? supra 82-88 7mge f1 stage 3, http://gripforce.com/store/index.php...roducts_id=200 for what I have found the 7mgte clutch will be a pull type and the 2jz clutch I think the bolt pattern is different too.
So guru's help me out I want to order this ASSP, for now until I save enough for r154 with all the necessary parts to swap for the sc300.

If you wanna keep the w58 u need to get a 2jzge flywheel for it. U can get an is ,sc or mk4 flywheel, n u will need the w58 clutch kit.

W58 and R154 clutches are not compatible. As you've mentioned, the W is push, the R is pull. And the flywheels are different. What are you trying to do here?

i actually just bought a r 154 and had a w58 in my car. once i get everything installed i was gonna sell the flywheel and clutch (for the w58) and the transmission. the tranny was old and used i swaped out the automatic in my sc300 just to get stuff rolling but about 2 months after i swaped the trans it blew a head gasket!!!! ugg decided screw it rebuild motor and do r154 swap while everything was out. the clutch throw out bearing presure plate are all really really new like 1000 or 2000 miles TOPS on it i work 13 miles from my house do that both ways for less than 2 months... i have pics!! really good deal on it cause like thay said the clutches are different and i cant use it. i live in ct and i can ship stuff ups no problem

Well so far tomorrow I am going to have the flywheel resurface and go to performance shop and try to find out
what ACT pressure plate I have. Any comments are welcome.

Did you ask the guys at driftmotion? Maybe send them a link to this thread, I'm sure they'll know.

If it is for an R-154, you need a proper 1JZ flywheel and a 7MGTE clutch kit.

Ok, I call driftmotion and talked to Aron, they have the action clutch, "never heard of it", he told me it would fold the 400whp that I have, also was cheaper than ACT, so I ordered, everything arrived on Friday, all looks good, except the pilot bearing was a different size, that is my only complaint, everything bolt on, only problem was the alignment of the transmission is PITA by myself, I suggest get always someone to help you, took me about to 3 hours to put the car on the road again.
