    I need to get hold of a single mass flywheel for my 1.8TQ to go with a Southbend clutch I bought.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction I will appreciate it.

    any lightweight one is going to be pricey. especially if bought over here
    all fidanza, southbend etc are around the $500 mark.
    whats your budget?

    I bought my whole clutch and flywheel kit from them, around ££350 delivered with the stage 3 setup. Also they mark it as a warrenty replacement, it helps with customs etc

    V6 flywheel doesn't fit I4.

    8-bolt fitting, as opposed to 6.

    40V V8, with the exception of the RS6, have 8-bolt fitment.

    RS6 and all 32V V8 engines, have 10-bolt fitment.

    Hummmm just found out that some TDI have a Single Mass flywheel as stock and wandered if this would fit and be up to the job?

    www.ttvracing.co.uk if they don't list it, ask, as the website is in the middle of a revamp so hasn't been updated recently.

    Will fit, but your engine won't run.

    The crank sensor air gap's in a different place on a TDI.

    Our crank sensor runs from the gear inside the engine mounted on the rear of the crank, so no worries about sensors.

    I made enquires about some of the single mass conversions listed for A3's and TDi's etc some shops said they would work on an A4 and some said no. 100% the crank sensor poses no problem tho

    Well it's too much of a gamble so I will look for one that I know will fit.
