    What clutch for 400bhp s3??

    Well after stripping my lump down i found a 4 paddle clutch which MTM fitted and what a surprise they have grounded off all the numbers so i cant tell what make.. Also flywheel is buggered..

    Anyways i need to be ordering a clutch... Now what do people recommend??? Sachs??

    I got three mates who want one too so looking for a good deal..

    Will you be using the standard flywheel or steel single mass one?

    Tuffty uses standard flywheel, cover and uprated plate on a 400bhp engine

    I'm using a steel single mass flywheel and standard clutch for now but will be using the same as tuffty when its needed

    I think the details of the clutch is in his build thread

    Done a good couple of thousand miles on it now and as a day to day clutch its not bad.. certainly grabbier than OEM but still light.

    Obviously there is the longevity issue to get over and I am hoping that I won't find that out for quite a while yet... given the clutch on my car was changed at 70k and I have done 35k on it (12k of which was with the BT) then if I get past that I will be happy...
