    hey guys,
    by the looks of it a few of us are suffering from a slipping clutch :crying:
    me and a couple guys on VAGOC are gonna try and get a decent group buy going so will be contacting a couple suppliers for prices and discounts
    if your interested stick your name down so we can get an idea of numbers and ill get some prices as soon as they get back to me
    cheers guys!

    PS hope the mods dont mind me sticking this up while we get an idea of numbers

    Haha yeah I did..sounds much better then I thought it would. Wow BBK etc your debts are gonna be from modding your car man and not your education! Haha. I'm contemplating staying away from this site now as it's such a bad influence lol..Although the cai was a wicked purchase!

    I think if your clutch isn't slipping at the moment then it should be ok, but I'd your getting slip then it will be scarred and will need replacing. But for the sake of a couple hundred quid extra while everything is apart it could be worth doing!

    not bad slip. weather dependant. and depends how im drivin it i guess. if it makes sense ive been drivin to avoid it. its only on a high gear, high load run it might slip slightly. 30k miles car, 3 year old, remap only it was, but ive stuck a autotech pump on it, turbo back miltek to follow and stage 2+ so i guess it would be wise while its apart. 6-7 hour job to get the box on and off you reckon?

    if your going stage 2+ i would personally want everything new and solid that was going back in (tho im no expert) 6-7 hours is what ive read elsewhere so assuming £50 an hour rate which seems to be pretty normal its say £350ish to fit

    depending on the discount and assuming its Jan I would be interested. Only at Revo stage 1 but got Milltek TBE fitted from last Group buy and ITG Maxogen in the box waiting the upgrade....wouldn;t want to do this and then find I'm stuck with a slipping clutch. Take it after that its bascially a uprated fuel pump and she is good to goto 2+?

    Cheers.

    yep pretty much
    at stage 2+ you will be looking at around 375-390 hp and prob around 360 lb/ft going by a RR day i was at on sunday at which point i think a clutch will be needed!
    ill stick you down as a provisional anyway
