    Clutch flywheel-hybrid

    Can't find after a search,and just want,need some advise on what uprated clutch and flywheel i should get,i have a hybrid build taking place,but before map i want to do the clutch flywheel and uprated engine mounts,due to them being worn,so would rather prepare the car for map first. It is taking a while to get the car all sorted ectfor map,just want it right and ready for more power.much love adam.

    Have a look at Westy's, Welly's (more recent thread) and StaceyS3's thread for ideas... all have done this work... I use a DMF, std cover plate and Sachs paddle plate...

    Westy's setup seems to work well... engine mount wise its THS or Vibratechnics

    I have vibratechnics top two mounts (road) and the VF Engineering dogbone. It's a pretty nice combo. The VF dogbone is pretty stiff though, you coud probably just run a powerflexed standard dogbone but I like the tighter feeling.

    Ignore me,looks like the is an adjuster on the vibratechnics ones,bit like some engine torques you can get to stop the engine moveing as much.
