    S3/TT Performance clutches

    What options are out there as there a bit thin on the ice when you do a search on here or google?

    There doesn't seam to be much to choose from out there? you get standard ones at 150+ to 1300+ for the solid flywheel and uprated items?

    Is there something in the middle that uses the duel mass flywheel but a performance item as well

    Its gearbox dependant IIRC, some 5 speed A3 boxes are actually 6 sped box casings with 6th removed.

    mat20vt had this issue I believe...

    What sort of power are you running mate? Best bet is the uprated sachs item think most people have gone down that route.

    Before I sold mine i was going to fit a fidanza lightened duel mass flywheel with the sachs item which supposed to be a good combo pm me if you want anymore details as im selling it soon as i no longer have the car
    Absolute Red 8L S3 Revo, Hybrid Turbo, 3" downpipe, decat, Ds2500, FMIC 300bhp & 330 lb/ft

    ........ To Come, Sachs clutch & Fidanza lightened flywheel, BBS CH Reps, AP Coilovers, Rear tie arms & 20mm spacers & eventually MISANO red respray

    I don't want to go down the single mass flywheel if i can

    Tuffty's option sounds the best so far. TT with 400bhp, DMF, Std Cover and just a plate upgrade sound good

    Just got to find out where to get the uprated plate from

    Thanks Tuffty

    Thats the info i was wanting.

    If you can get a part number on the plate that would be even better
