    Question New turbo, will I need a new clutch??

    I'm thinking of getting a new turbo! Been told by a lot of people to get a hybrid? Is it the best to get? And if I was to get a new turbo would I have to replace anyone like the clutch?

    A hybrid turbo will take a few upgrades up to a certain amount of power if you do it in stages, not sure what the 2.0L. is ultimatley capable off. When the car is remapped clutch slip is monitored and the tuner who will advise you of a safe working torque for your car. If you are keeping this car for a number of years rather than months then it is worth chaging the clutch to something like a Helix clutch and there again the Flywheel is next on the possible failure list. So it all depends on how longyouare keping the car and how much money you want to spend. If you are only keeping the car for year or two then I would just have a remap and gain a modest amount of power.
