    Standard Sachs one here. JKM claimed that it would be fine on anything up to 300lb/ft. I'm not planning on upgrading the power any more than it is so couldn't justify paying 300 for a higher rated clutch I don't need.

    Sachs Organic, rated to 330 lb/ft as my car is pushing 311 lb/ft so standard one can't cope. This one retains the dual mass flywheel.

    If your going to the trouble of taking the box off, you may as well uprate the clutch and fly, obviously funds come into the equasion, but if you have the cash, and have the power upgrades e.g remap (want a big turbo) then definatly reccomend a stage 1 or stage 2 organic clutch.

    It wasn't too bad to be fair, but as with any uprated clutch it had off the line judder and the flywheel chattered at idle. I'm not convinced the standard clutch is that bad unless you're a traffic light hero.
