Finally after months of driving with slipping clutch, got my Sachs uprated clutch fitted with new DMF, Denso Iridium Plugs, and H&R lowering springs fitted thanks to Waring 192... Some Blackberry pics first ( PS APOLOGIES TO LAVE GREY OWNERS FOR NOT WASHING THIS AWESOME COLOUR PRIOR TO PICCIES) Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us Uploaded with ImageShack.us Firstly the ride height. These are only -25mm H&R springs but are meant for the S3 sportback, which is already much lower then my car ( a sport with S-Line/votex factory fitted body kit). I think because of this it looks relatively slammed considering its only on springs! I love the stance now esp at the rear, the car has yet to fully settle although these springs have already been run in. Not yet had the chance to test the handling on my 3.0mile test drive. Secondly the Sachs uprated clutch - drive disc and pressure plate, with OEM DMF. I once tried the pedal in Davie's Orange S3 with this clutch and was astounded at the weight. ! But despite my friend/mechanic saying the same after his test I find the pedal pressure acceptible. It is alot more springy then before thanks to the uprated pressure plate, and this will take some getting used to. Once it is bedded in I'll try some nice quick launches As i expected brand new these clutches judder when setting off a bit but I drove it 25 mins in traffic on hilly roads without too much difficulty. So for everyday, it is fine for me ( although its not a daily driver), bearing in mind its at its worst now driveability wise. When engaging a new gear you can def. feel a much much quicker uptake then before even though its not bedded in. So far impressed with this clutch. Thirdly the plugs- Denso Iridiums. My original plugs were coked to death and the car was not running right- rough idle and felt it holding back after afew seconds WOT. With these plugs fitted, while in STANDARD map there is a very significant improvement in performance and running of the engine. The old plugs were clearly knakerd. Idling is much smoother and even in standard map the car feels quick, it feels 85% of what it feels like in GIAC 'pump' mode before. Clearly I have been driving with a v poorly car and missing many ponies. The car never used to feel that quick in standard mode, now it idles smooth and pulls harder to redline, bearing in mind I did not load the engine from low revs due to a new clutch. I have also had the gearbox oil changed for the first time and a treatment inserted, which acts as a secondary lubricant which adheres to the rotating parts and 'attract's the oil better. This is has vastly improved the shift quality and I recommend this to EVERYONE. When the clutch is fully bedded in I will report further re its ability to withstand launches and how the plugs have improved performance in 'Pump' Mode. Given what its now like in stock mode i cant wait to test it out properly . I have had the car remapped for a while now and changing the plugs was something I wish I hadn't overlooked! Next is Autotech Fuel Pump, new map, then wheel refurb and paint correction.Oh and new brakes when back from holiday! What disc /pad combo do you recommend?
