    Not sure does look light now. I doubt Ben will have scales at his shop either to weigh it up...

    That flywheel looks super badass.

    I would have no worries running something that light, especially with our torque tastic K03.

    The confidence having a solid flywheel gives is amazing, knowing you can mash it from gear to gear as aggressive as you like. I quite often change from second to third with the wheels fully spinning and at 7K on the limiter.

    Whilst the gearbox has gone within 6 months the clutch feel, increased modulation and the lightness of the pedal is such a huge improvement.

    I can't believe you haven't done it yet :D

    Friday night: rolled up to bens for clutch fitting.
    Old flywheel and clutch


    old flywheel vs new flywheel


    snapshot of gearbox


    new clutch in place


    Just over 2hrs later everything was back in! Took it for a test drive with Ben to make sure everything was in working order.
    What can I say?! Massive thanks to Ben for a mother cracking job! The clutch is sweeeeeeet! As people have said it does rev up and down so quickly. The clutch pedal is stiffer to dis-engage. Takes a little getting used to (almost stalled reversing out the work shop haha)

    but my word this car is now performing how it should be! Had a nice little race last night and it didn't miss a beat! Not one clutch slip. May need to upgrade to better tyres as the fallens 452s aren't cutting it now.

    Also had spare time to prep and paint the s3 strut brace I got. Can't fit it yet as the pipe of the Turbo is in the way. Need to revise it with Ben soon!
    But sneaky pic


    quick wash of the motor and polished the tail pipes


    how the car sits at the moment


    didnt get to fit the TT front wish bone rear bushes as the ramp was being repaired and I can't use the 2nd ramp as it will hit my bumper. Job for next week I think!

    I haven't noticed any noise difference, to be fair I didn't listen out for it so it hasn't stood out if louder. Will be popping out shortly I will check it then

    Good work Jay. Takes a little getting used to a new clutch/FW but it'll driver much better when you work out what's the best approach.

    Bah! This annoys me.

    Common misconception, there is a minute noise which is hardly audible with a closed bonnet and closed windows up.

    "Noisy" isn't the word I would ever use.

    Didn't hear anything different, well not over the engine anyway. I haven't stuck my head in the engine bay to listen out for it probably won't. All I know is I love the new setup! Still getting used to it as I'm bogging it down now and then

    The 02j is not noisy with a smf replacement, you have to bare in mind the flywheel and clutch you are fitting are o.e parts made for the 02a gearbox (early 02j). It can't be compared to a smf replacement on the 02m as this box was always designed to have a dmf, so will of course be noisier with a smf. The gearsets in the 02m are a lot larger in comparison and this will contribute to the noise when you fit a smf conversion.

    Was a simple question chill your beans..

    It wasn't a misconception was mearly asking if it made a noise or not. Some do some don't and in this case it doesn't so win for jay.

    Really love the build mate! The white wrap really looks good... I'll be watching for further updates!

    One question though: Why didn't you wrap the lower parts of your bumpers as well?

    Thanks mate! The bumper was so hard to do with all the curves. Being the first time applying wrap it was difficult, we did try and many swear words later my brother gave in and said we'll spray the bumpers. I decided to leave the bottom bits black as the side skirting bit was black already and thought it matches, so left it

    Ahh I see... I can imagine that wrap stuff is hard to work with! I tried once and couldn't get it right for life of me...

    But I think it actually looks pretty mean with the bottom bits black!

    hmmm and yet, 02j boxes on ibizas which came with dual mass and swap to single mass also rattle....

    except badgerwagen... which is a balanced motor - there's the clue i think..

    cant offer another explanation myself. weird huh?

    So far so good and yes the pedal is heavier. Soon as I lift off a little the car just wants to go!

    Yours is acceptable, because it has many boosts. Most are sheds owned by kids.
