Default idiot clutch question - 1.6 vs. 1.8

When I first had the car boosted on the 1.6 several years ago, stock clutch obviously let go and I upgraded to an ACT XT Street .

I'm 90% sure I bought the 1.6 because I don't recall getting a flywheel with it.

The current iteration of putting my car back together will be low 200's or so, so my plan is to use this clutch until it either gives out or i start the next roudn of going bigger on the powerplant. Then it'll get a 949 twin disk orgasmotron *****-lifter.

No problem to swap the 1.6 flywheel and clutch over to this motor for now, correct? My recollection is just that the clutch and flywheels must be matched, but they are swappable between 1.6's and 1.8's, correct?

1.6 clutch goes with a 1.6 flywheel.
you can use a 1.8 clutch and flywheel in a 1.6 trans, but both need to be swapped out, yes.

That's the point, i guess. Either clutch/flywheel can go on either motor/tranny combo, as long as the clutch and flywheel travel together.
