We've expanded our clutch kit offering again with the addition of these performance clutch kits for the B5 / B6 1.8T 5 speed vehicles.
These 228 mm clutch kits include a lightweight flywheel made from investment cast 4140 steel tips the scales at 18.4-lbs versus the stock flywheel weight of 26-lbs. This results in significantly better power delivery and well as a quicker spooling turbo, essentially freeing up wasted horsepower. Driveability and comfort remain unchanged as these flywheels are geared for the street.
Our clutch kits are offered to suit a wide range of uses and driving styles, from the most tame to the most aggressive. Take a look below to see which one fits your needs the best.
Stage 1 & 2 are both full faced, steel back, brass plus sprung discs. Stage 1 includes a 1900 lb pressure plate, good for a max torque of 210 ft lbs while the Stage 2 kit includes a 2500 lb pressue plate good for 300 ft lbs. Both 1 & 2 are geared for street comfort and are ideally suited for a stock turbo with bolt on upgrades.
Our Stage 3 kit includes a full segmented, ceramic, sprung disc, and 2500 lb pressure plate good for approximately 400 ft lbs of torque. This kit is ideal for spirited driving and would also pair well with a K04 turbo upgrade.
