    I don't believe so. The flywheels are very different, if I remember right, and the GT-R clutch is quite a bit larger.

    It might work just fine. But the only way to find out is to look at the relevent dirty greasy bits once they are outta the car. I know I have run fidanza bpt wheels on gtr cranks, and all manner of clutches bolted to them. Trouble is there have been too many of those combos, on 3 different cars, for me to be able to remember, and say yes that works or no it doesn't.
    When you have everything apart, one thing to look VERY carefully at is the crank pocket. One of my flywheel/gtr crank combos had the pocket in the flywheel being just a tiny bit too small for the crank. So we put it on, bolted it down, thought everything was fine, and wondered why the clutch didn't work right on test drive. Guess who got to take the whe damn thing apart again and then put a different flywheel on....
    Then there's the potential for the clutch step on the front of the flywheel being the wrong height and preventing the clutch from behaving.
