    hi, iv had my a3 2.0 tdi 140bhp for 3 weeks now, last week i had it remapped by custom code and now it slips the clutch when you try to put the power down, its just ticked over 100,000 so is probably due a new clutch but just incase i put just a standard clutch in i wanna know if the standard clutch can take the torque or it will slip again? or what clutch should i put in to eliminate the slipping? cheers, dan.

    @ N8KOW I have uprated the clutch three times now.

    @danclarke If you need to fit a new clutch fitting another stock clutch is a waste of money. Both Sachs and Helix make uprated clutches and are very good. Most tuning companies should be able to sort you out with a clutch and any good garage that is capable of fitting a new stock clutch should be able to fit an uprated version as the parts size and fitments are justs the same as the stock clutch.

    When you get a clutch just make sure you get one with an organic drive disc not a sintered or PUK disc. The stock clutch is the weakest point on a VAG diesel car as they are only rated to 300lb torque and don`t like remaps or to be abused-driven hard.
