    hi all,

    with some mods in the pipeline. was wondering how much power and torque can the existing OE clutch take?

    car is 1.8T (190PS) S-line Quattro

    anyone upgraded their clutch? anyone running high power in their B6 quattro?

    I think Oettinger say upgrade the clutch if putting more than 235 lbft through it. Which pretty well means - Anymore than a Re-Map and you'll need a clutch on a 190ps 1.8t.......! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    You might be as well to ask this in the A3 or B5 section, Kenny. I'm sure some of the S3/A3/B5 chaps can advise you.

    It seems to be a problem on AS that people post tuning questions in their own models section and then it just gets lost......... Which is a a shame when you consider the 1.8t is used in the A3, A4 (B5+B6) and A6.

    I'm not having a go at you Kenny but information would be so much easier to find if tuning posts were posted in the tuning section for the whole of AS to read.

    had a little bit of bad news.

    from some research and a company, they reckon going upto and around 300lbft will be too much for the standard flywheel. so the clutch and flywheel will need to be replaced /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Mmmmmmmmm..... That's a bummer. Are they sure? Any second opinions?

    I would've thought the flywheel will be ok.

    the reply

    ""With your A4 i have done some research and we have found that the
    rubber
    fixings inside the OEM flywheel are not suitable to run beyond or
    around
    300lbs of torque (which is probably what you will achieve with the
    eliminator kit) so therefore we offer a complete flywheel and clutch
    assembly to replace the current system.""

    seems like a genuine guy and had recomends

    not had a 2nd opinion tho

    Of course, the flywheel is a dual mass one. I guess the replacement one is solid.......?
