    8P A3 2.0 TDI....Concerned about clutch not handling post chip power !!

    Hey guys really hope I'm not flogging an old thread but can't find a relevant one on here..

    Am flogging the Cupra 1.8 T Leon and want to move into the world of torquey diesel power !! used to work in a VAG prep centre so am very familiar with the awesome pull the TDI's provide, but as a man..I obviously want more, Has anyone managed to keep the standard clutch with a 200+bhp re map ?

    I'm guessing an OEM upgraded clutch would be a good idea straight away but I am willing to put up with a little slippage when cold.

    Yes... I am a noob
    Awesome site so far btw

    Peace and Pastry to all

    You could keep the standard clutch and see how long it lasts. If you want max torque you'l need a clutch upgrade. Sachs is the best imo

    I think we are forgetting one major fact, the car is rated with a maximum curb weight and a 100k mile warranty. So you can trust that all the running gear components of the car are good for a little more strain and stress.

    Unless you are 5 people up, boot full of gear and a roof rack on! And then running huge amounts more power you are good for the sort of increases you will see from a main stay chip company.
