    I think sachs do an uprated unit good for around 300BHP. with the appropriate flywheel.
    Oil pump fixed then?

    I had the sachs stage 3 clutch kit and lightened flywheel.

    V. nice but not cheap.

    Oil pump fix but it has a bottom end knock so the engine is coming out for a rebuild so it the right thing to do and sort the clutch out before it all goes back in

    I hope to get 300 to 400 bhp in the future so it needs to be sorted

    Ive just fitted a sache power clutch . Not had chance to use it yet mind but i was told by a few places its about as good as it gets without going down the single mass flywheel route.
    I wanted to avoid this as i knew the rattle would drive me mad.
