    after a very long week in the waiting finally have my new performce clutch installed. only took so long due to my mechanic having some family trouble and wrong parts being delivered! just my luck.

    well heres the break down of what i got incase anyone else is needing a clutch.

    Sachs Performance Clutch £400.00
    Sachs Fly wheel £260
    Release Bearing 37.00
    Fitting £150
    Total cost £847
    gettin my car back runnin fast = priceless! lol:rockwoot:

    ....big money for a clutch, car feels 100% better tho, gear changes feel more responsive and it pulls a lot better but thats prob because i had a fried clutch for a few month!

    Congratulations - you find with the Sach sports clutch that the biting point is very narrow. Good for the fast starts but sometimes it gets a bit tiring in stop start traffic.
    Good to hear you are pleased

    Is the Sachs flywheel lightened?

    I've got the Sachs VW VR6 clutch which is rated to 320ft.lbs, which I think is less than the Sachs performance kit can handle, and mine now has a very light pedal but the biting point is OEM.

    Great stuff. You might notice an improvement in MPG now that all the power you're generating is actually getting to the road! Mine went up 4mpg (according to DIS) with the new clutch, which is a 10% improvement. It'll pay for itself before long ;)

    I've got the Sachs and I hated it to start with but now I'm used to it, I don't notice I have it, which is a good thing!

    Just can't drive other cars anymore lol!
