    Upgrade clutch on A3 TQ

    I'm searching for a new clutch (and flywheel?) for my A3 TQ.

    Any suggestions? (I think I've got the same clutch as the S3 - could someone please ack og nack? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    Will the R32 Clutch fit?

    Re: Upgrade clutch on A3 TQ

    AndyC at GDI has just fitted an uprated clutch and flywheel to a Big Turbo 2.0l stroker conversion S3 producing over 400BHP. Maybe give him a try... or look here at his website.

    I have it on good authority that prices are in the process of being sorted for the site [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Many of the products are done but there are new products being added all the time (I know there are actually other clutch options too) so if you need something just give them a call or drop them an e-mail, they're great people at GDI [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ok.gif[/img]

    Hope that helps.

    Re: Upgrade clutch on A3 TQ

    I needed a new clutch after my remap shagged mine. The car (BMW in this case so jokes welcome) is only 6 months old so I had to get it done under warrenty so I cant upgrade mine yet for another 2.5 years [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    And in that 2.5 years I bet if it goes again you'll get yet another free one on warranty eh? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    I know fasteddie is running a Sachs clutch and lightened fly wheel on his S3 - it might be worth a PM.

    I didn't think a gt2871r would do 400bhp either.

    I take it you have a small gt3071r.
    I probably would spec a .64 a/r gt3071r for a solid 420bhp.

    76mm inlet trim, 56 out... IIRC larger than the 3071, but different pitch to the blades on the exhaust turbine....
