Vauxhall XE/Z20 *7 degree suits manta sump/RX8 adapter
This adapter plate was designed to bolt a Vauxhall XE/Z20 engine at a 7degree angle to suit a manta sump to an rx8 gearbox using as many of the engines standard parts as possible. It utilizes the engines original flywheel (flat faced flywheel for the XE) and clutch pressure plate along with a ford 23 spline clutch friction plate. You will need to machine 15mm off the bellhousings mating face and re machine the 2 dowel holes in the bellhousing face. This ensures the input shaft locates fully in the crank and in the clutch friction plate.
In most cases it is possible to use the rx8 clutch arm slave cylinder and release bearing with very little work, but In some cases the clutch arm pivot point height might need adjusting to suit. We recomend mocking this up out of the car. The bolt pitch tapped in the adapter plate is M10x1.5mm
Tested on road and in motorsport to ensure we offer the most reliable adapter plate on the market.
