    Had to wait a bit for this as the company that made it are between moving premises.

    But worth it

    Thats 3.5 kgs

    The old Duel Mass Flywheel thats been sat outside in the rain

    Thats 10.5 kgs

    I hope this will help my 2.1 as the TDI crank was 2 kg more than the S3 crank

    oooo thats sexy mate, how much did you pay if you dont mind me asking mate?

    my dual mass is on the way out and i dont intend on replacing it like for like, i know on n/a cars a lightened flywheel can help build the revs quicker, is this true on forced induction engines too?

    I think I may have taken a couple of thousand miles off the other day though LOL... just don't do too many launches :racer:

    I may have to get myself one of these... I'll be in touch :)

    Single mass flywheels tend make the gearbox chatter a bit on idle...

    how come, because of dropping more revs when changing the lower gears, creating more lag?

    Na, it won't. They list solid conversions for the A3 pretty much everywhere, so if they did damage to the engine, they wouldn't get sold.

    I want one of those .com.

    £220 well spent!!

    You can get a fluidamper crank pulley that claims to reduce chatter (plus gain hp & torque) for single mass flywheel conversions, but it ain't cheap.

    I wouldn't be so quick... non std crank pulley was suspected in a cause for this...

    http://www.seatcupra.net/forums/showthread.php?t=208928

    [EDIT]

    Ok, I was a little premature with this one (thanks for the reminder Bill mate:icon_thumright:)... this engine didn't have the fluid damper fitted but as Bill explains a bit further down it was a non dampened (if such a word exists) one.

    What makes you think that? 1.8t's are more than capable of making that kind of power and surviving :)

    I guess it did survive 50 laps of Silverstone and a dyno test!

    I've got a 6kg single mass flywheel an V6 clutch on my A3, it's really not that bad, but it is noticeable on idle. I wouldn't let it worry you!

    the Neuspeed power pulley (no damper at all! ) is what probably caused this..
    never fit a non damped crank pulley - EVER

    Fluid Damper is a high end silicone damper pulley which works better than OE, and ideally suited to higher revving 1.8t's which run big turbos.
    my ibiza runs Fluid Damper and is smooth to 9000rpm - top bit of kit, but pricey

    Badger got a link to the dampers

    Yes Dani

    You need to have a word with a company called TTV Racing ( http://www.ttvracing.com/ ). As i said at the start they are moving and the flywheel can take a long time
