      Thanks for the bump. We have two types now, Steel Billet and Alloy.

      FST 228MM L/W Single Mass Steel Billet Flywheel Includes Ring Gear $324.95 Shipped Ground

      FST 228MM L/W Single Mass Alloy Flywheel Includes Ring Gear $389.95 Shipped Ground


      what applications would you use these for? Why would you choose alum over steel?

      For the most weight reduction people use alloy. The steel is a bit heavier and is a stronger. Both are designed to work on the 2.5 when combined with a 228mm VR6 clutch kit.

      for reals? Cuz the one thing I despise about the 2.5 is the effin clutch. It has zero feedback and I stall it more often than my 96 GTI or 92 Golf (which is like never) and there is like no in between on the 2.5, in or out. I hate it and anything I can do to change that is worth it in my book.

      I got 600 miles on mine. I'm gonna wait till I hit 1,000 miles and do an oil change before I really start hammering on it. I've laid into it a couple times in the past few days and it feels great. The clutch pedal feels like something is actually there and the shifts feel so much better.

      How much gearbox chatter (if any) is present with either the steel or alloy flywheel? I'm looking into this for the future, but I would like to avoid chatter if at all possible, even if that means going with the slightly heavier flywheel.
      Anything's better than the OEM DM flywheel that's in there right now.

      I can find the sound clips with the alloy one. We have not recorded any with the steel yet. The steel material and extra weight will dampen the idler gear rattle somewhat better than the alloy. There will always be some extra noise when going from a DMF to a single mass conversion.

      With the steel flywheel and VR6 clutch in the 2.5 engine, has the engagement point changed at all? Any issues with slipping or not releasing? Also, there is no noise on the VR engines so how could there be noise on a 2.5 with single mass flywheel and a SPRUNG hub clutch?

      okay so i have no experience whatsoever on what flywheels fit my car or what clutches work the best regarding six puck, full disk, steel or alloy flywheels etc. I have an 09 rabbit, ive been autocrossing for the past 2 years and my question is what is the best combination of stage 1 clutches n flywheel that is the cheapest for me to upgrade. i have no issues with the amount of noise or chatter it makes. i just want the lowest price possible on upgrading the flywheel n which clutch kit would be the best? sorry for the noobish question but lately my clutch is feeling really mushy or the pedal at least, and i want to upgrade eventually as the clutch will start slipping at any moment.

      Best bang for the buck, Sachs VR6 clutch kit ( full face organic, w/ sprung hub disc) and Our steel billet flywheel. This will make some noise at idle with clutch pedal out.

      The DM flywheel will not work with the 228MM VR6 sprung hub clutch kit.

      Benefits are Throttle response and Longer clutch/flywheel life.

      so if i wanted to be closest to stock dm flywheel the billet steel would be the best way to go? and for the clutch my car is geting a big turbo treatment so if i get stage 3 clutch now will it be undrivable n/a or should i get stage 2 to drive on till then and use that with my built motor since my buddy has a 700hp vrt and has southbend clutch but its rated at 375tq and is holding up... so i should add ill be around 5-600hp when done.

      The steel FW will be the closest overall weight to stock. A six puck disc will not last as long as a full face version.

      Because you are building a engine that is going to exceed 400 TQ consider A kit that uses a Sachs Sport pressure plate instead of a modified oem sachs one. South Bend/DXD uses these in the stage 3 and 4 kits.

      The Max torque that South Bend rates their stage 4 kit at is 525 and these sell for about $600 w/o a flywheel.

      Next step up is a Tilton twin disc with a pressure plate rated for 700 TQ
