      Picked up the clutch/flywheel/PP and custom length stage 1 axles for my 02Q swap. For once, I love the city I live in. Both are local companies :).

      It always matters, and people who say it doesn't shouldn't be allowed to touch anything, lol.
      Depending on what engine management is used, you can have batch fire (all four fire at once, old school...
    11. LF: 02M 4cyl or 02Q FSI flywheel (dual or single mass)

      If anyone out there has upgraded their MkV/MkVI flywheel and wants to sell their DM one...hit me up :).
      I'd also be interested in any single-mass units, but price is key.

      Thanks!

      ...and of course I'm a dumb bunny. I actually had a 190mm clutch in the car originally, so that would be the thrust plate I used. Sorry about that, chalk it up to age and memory loss, lol ;).

      Fought my way through the 02Q reassembly. Steel 1-2 and 3-4 shift forks, and a new diff bearing. NOT a one-man job, if you value your sanity, ugh.
