Default So Mazdaspeed Miatas' have different pressureplates?

There is a guy who is selling a Mazdaspeed stock clutch for 35 dollars and it's only got 29,000 miles on it. Question I want to know, is do I use the same pressure plate...?

you would need the mazdaspeed pressure plate as well.

The pressure plate is really the secret of the MSM clutch setup. It has a higher clamping force. The actual clutch disc is similar if not identical to other 1.8L clutches.

No, you won't need a different flywheel. Probably want to resurface yours though.

Umm, no, but thanks for your usefulness to the conversation.


EDIT: The search to answer this would have taken 35 seconds.
