    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.

    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

    surely it will be heavier? they run massive damper balancing units as well

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