Car is in for the replacement clutch and fly wheel today, once that's done I'll move on to a remap, Dpf delete and quad exhaust
Where did you get the clutch from in the end, was it Car Parts, Spares & Accessories | Car Parts UK | Buy Car Parts Online | Buy Parts By
Thats not good, Hopefully the reason for the lack of clutches is that they rarely go wrong.
Been looking at what some of the european guys do with this engine and there are plenty of them on stock clutches over 700Nm .
The one guy appears to have just scraped 400bhp and 850Nm but it looks like the clutch actually started slipping at those kind of levels.
We have a twin 228mm clutch and in my experience a single standard 228mm clutch is good for 350-400Nm so I would expect the twin to hold 700-800Nm.

Good news, just need to break it in a bit before hammering it on a dyno .
He asked me if I wanted a dummy dpf but I said no as I am happy to just have a straight through pipe, don't know why I said know as I have since thought I might as well just have one as it won't be doing any harm, that way any unknowing copper if I ever were to be pulled up over it I could show them that and say its there lol so I think I will have one out in for the sake of it. I don't think its hard to replicate how a dpf looks at all it should be quite simple really and as they all look different I doubt most will know exactly the shape of the A4 dpf.
So do you think there is no point getting them to put a dummy in place? It won't cost me anymore to have one put in. Also what engine is your car that sounds really good.
If you are looking for a one stop solution for the mapping and exhaust you could try Rick at Unicorn Motor Developments in Stockport, It's where I had mine remapped and the DPF/cat removed .
What did you get charged if you mind mind me asking, as I'm paying £230 inc vat for dpf delete & £150 for stage 2 and dpf software delete.
That is cheap especially for the remap part of it. I paid £600 all in but that involved at least 6 hours of data logging and mapping .Also I think the DPF is more difficult to remove on my car compared to a 2.0 .
Lost count of the number of times the map was tweaked and reloaded. The map was completely custom for my car, i told Rick what I wanted and he worked his magic. As my car is a quattro theres only a few places that have 4wd dynos in comparison to 2wd dynos of which there are many.
If I hadn't gone to Rick I would have probably gone to AMD and they charge £699 but I would probably have not got as good a map, and Essex is a good deal furter away
