I would recon about £1000 for clutch and flywheel kit and fitting. Obviously less if you dont require flywheel. Not sure how long it takes but mine was back the same day.

£1000!!!!! Sod that! The Mk4's one of the best to work on too, loads of room after taking a few simple things out the way.

Could be a reman one, maybe that's why it's so cheap. I'm sticking with the sachs VR6 setup myself, seems about as good as anything for the power I'll be putting out anyway.

Yeah, had VR6 clutch / G60 flywheel combo on my 1.8T after I shredded the original with 280 lbft. Was easily up to the job...

I would find out the manufacturer and do some research, last thing you want is to have to replace it again.

Pay gold and still risk getting monkeys as far as I can tell, just depends on the actual guy and wether or not he's any good. Seen plenty of complaints from cars going to dealers and so called specialists that end up costing loads and breaking things.

I also know of some, I've just fixed and issue with a friends camper that a so called classic car specialist screwed up. Go figure.

the tech will have no problem fitting thats easy.

But whether your clutch will be up to the job, thats the question.

Some folk are just weary of cheap is all, they're not used to it or they got stung when they're tried going cheap in the past. Been there myself.

If you have a guy you know and trust then that's usually the best way of getting things done.

I like to do my own work on my car and use recommended parts but that's just me, I'm not looking for box standard though, I want something that can handle the extra torque from a bit of tuning.

Maybe, it'll maybe depend on the torque and the way it's brought in but I would also be surprised if it lasted or took the strain myself.


It's a good point piebobs71

What's your standard poke?

Any pics of your ride piebobs? I saw a mk4 going through Arbroath the other day with some monstrosity of a front bumper. Hope it wasn't you.

A remap alone on an AUM should see 200 BHP though quite easily. And the standard clutch should cope with the power / torque from just a map, so as long as its as good quality as OEM you should be good. When I remapped my A3 2.0 TDI it killed the clutch, I replaced with OEM and it was fine for the next 40k until I sold it. Clutches go, and remaps speeds this up, but so long as your not putting stupid power through OE spec stuff you should be okay.

If you kill this one though, you live and learn, and at least you know someone you trust who gives you a good enough price on fitting. And now you will know to go VR6/G60 combo... Which can easily be done for £300 or less (well, when I did mine, but that was back in '08 or something).

Probably half if you can get hold of the G60 flywheel, loads of them about.

Glad it wasn't that motor I seen then. Nothing wrong with R32/LCR combo on a mk4...

Red ring on the first pic. That's the adjuster if that all the way down that's it at its lowest. If it was me that red ring would be in the spare parts box as that another 10mm approx of adjustment
