Anybody know of any clutch kits compatible with the manual version of our car? Is it possible that clutch kits for older 6 speed Corollas will work since they still have a 1.8 ? Thanks

Why not just buy Toyota OEM its only $143.84 for the pressure plate and $182.39 for the clutch disc total: $326.23? Plus labor wherever you go to get it done. Those are MSRP prices but a couple dealers have it on sale right now. You aren't going to need anything more heavy duty for this car as there isn't much out there you can add to it to make more power.


Part numbers:
Disc 3125012600
Clutch Cover/ Pressure Plate 3121012340

I'd be interested in getting lighter parts for sure, my 2016 weighs in at a hefty 3k lbs, which is a whole heck of a lot for a car that looks like a sports car hatchback.

A clutch alone won't make your car lighter. The flywheel could but not by much a factory flywheel for a FRS is 50LBS about. I wouldn't be surprised at ours weighing much less.

If it is weight you are after remove your rear folding seats that's a good 60-100 pounds and remove your spare tire and tools. changing 1 internal part isn't going to make your car much lighter. The clutch disc doesn't weigh much and the pressure plate is maybe 15-20lbs.

You could always look at a light weight NST crank pulley. That helps free up some wheel HP.

Please tell me where because the most I've really seen for the iM is fog lights and a few intakes
i spent a couple of months hunting for bits. go to a toyota parts catalog and start chasing part numbers, thats what i did.
ok so ive compiled a compatible mods guide but aparently im not allowed to make a new thread as ive only posted on this forum 4 times, so the admin should sort this if you guys want this list!! its pretty extensive.

The Most Cost-Effective, SECRET Compatible Clutch Kit

I had my clutch replaced early - I really struggled with the OEM clutch, horrible feel and bite point, plus learning to shift properly. I was stranded in San Diego and went to a reputable transmission shop suggested by family. The labor was expensive due to the situation, but the owner found me an inexpensive, yet high-quality OE replacement kit. The clutch felt better than the OEM, but when I get it replaced next, I will still use the same part and ask the shop to lower the bite.

I had him give me my old clutch in the box which held the new clutch. I took a picture of the box before discarding it. This is the Amazon link; it's about half the price of the Aisin kit. It's by Exedy, a reputable brand. EDIT: I can't post the link due to lack of post history. Search amazon for this: EXEDY TYK1522

The part info at the Exedy website says it fits the 2011-15 Corolla. However, this is without a doubt the kit that is installed in my 2016 iM. So it is secretly compatible, which doesn't surprise me, as the base of the '16 iM/Auris (E180) was the '15 Corolla (E170) Toyota B architecture. The iM only moved to the new architecture TNGA-C in 2018.
