If you can afford it, I believe the best option'd be a light flat flywheel and matching pressure plate but, AFAIK, either of the stock flywheels'll do with a matching pressure plate but check the friction plate also matches the splines of the Manta box.

yeah i knew i'd need a friction plate that matched the box, i just wasnt sure if the xe flywheel would go in the bellhousing.

nah that one wont work, you need one for the manta 1.8 if you are going to buy the kit as one.

The reason mine is a mixture is because i went to a clutch rebuilder place and we speced one up that would work best but as opel valver says the 1.8 manta one works fine.

Do you guys mean using the earlier flat XE flywheel or the later heavier type?

Should be able to. I used a Commodore gearbox with a C20NE 2L engine.

I used ecotec flywheel (stepped) but that caused issues with my release bearing as I was using commodore everything else and the release bearing didn't even come into contact with the pressure plate. Got a stepped bearing to fix it though.
