    Try darkside developments, they are quite well priced. Even the standard flywheel and clutch is cheaper from them than my garage could get it. And they do uprated ones for if your looking to do some power upgrades in the future.

    Are you looking for supply and fit or just supply?

    going for a new sachs flywheel new sachs performance clutch kit . rated at 550 nm should do the job..

    Im sure theres nothing wrong with my flywheel but replacing any way and will be inspecting my helix clutch as think that will be ok if someone needs a new clutch and isn't running over 400nm 220 bhp. only slipped twice so should be ok.

    Sorry to jump into this thread but my Flywheel is on the way out so looking to get a new flywheel & clutch soon. Any advise on what to get? I 'may' look at getting a performance increase but will only be looking to up to about 170 - 180BHP from my standard 140 BKD engine. I was looking at the SACHS flywheel/clutch kit from DarksideDevelopments, price seems pretty good. (trying to keep cost down as much as possible as only just forked out for a new turbo couple of months ago)

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    for 180 bhp you should be fine on standard clutch . cheapest place to get a flywheel is eurocar parts . also the sachs performance clutch is good for 550 nm but the ones advertised on there site only say 475nm..... my helix clutch will be fine for 180 bho if your interested or im going to ebay it when its checked over and taken out .
