Possible to upgrade clutch size.............

I am wondering if I could upgrade to a bigger clutch. I have a super t 10 in my Trans Am, which uses the 10.4 inch, 26 spline clutch. I want to upgrade to an 11 inch, 26 spline clutch. Is it possible to do without buying a new flywheel?

Car is an 82 Trans Am with a 1970's chevy 350 with a 1978 BW super t 10 trans. Has plenty of grunt (not sure, but prolly nearly 300 hp and tq at tires). Would like to upgrade to Centerforce dual friction clutch, pp, and t/o bearing (11 inch, 26 spline).

Generally, you'll find the 11" clutch used with the 168 tooth flywheel. The best way to tell if you have that one instead of the smaller 153 teeth flywheel is to check the starter mounting bolt pattern. The 153 teeth wheel uses a starter with the 2 bolts straight across from each other. the 168 teeth starter has 2 staggered / offset bolts. The 11" clutch requires the larger bellhousing, which you'll already have if the flywheel is 168 teeth.
