      '08 2.5Turbo Rabbit
      01-10-2011 08:04 PM #53
      So I'm planning on a little forced induction on my 08 rabbit.I'm really not looking for crazy power (under 300 whp) what would you say is the best clutch and flywheel set up you'd recommend? I'm wanting something that holds well yet feels slightly stiffer than stock.I've had act clutches before on a few of my other cars as well as their lightened steel fly wheel.I really liked it but was only stage 2 on a naturally aspirated motor.what would be my best bet? And a rough price would be nice too? Thanks in advance.

      I don't want to keep the dual mass flywheel at all. But am concerned about long term reliability. Your fly wheels can be resurfaced right?
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      For clutch life we recommend an organic disc, organic disc is made by Clutchnet with 6 retaining plates and solid backing so it will not break under pressure, a modified pressure plate will allow the power to be put down to the wheels. Clutch Net stage 2 is perfect for your needs.

      another quick question...

      is it possible for me to just use a 228mm vr6 flywheel?
      I want to upgrade the clutch however am not sure i want to get the lightened flywheel just yet.

      if i can use the vr6 flywheel i'd be very interested to find out what needs to be done to use it. and then i'd be able to get the stage 2 clutch kit

      thanks in advance!
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      A VR6 flywheel will not bolt up to a 2.5 crankshaft ( 10 bolt instead of 6). So in order to use a VR6 clutch kit our flywheel must be used.

      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 VR6 clutch kit is shown with steel or alloy flywheel does not matter. Many VR6 and 1.8T users are pushing more than 275 whp with the sachs vr6 clutch kit.

      in mine its sometimes "hard" to get into first...

      when it starts behaving that way, i just start on second... it isnt often... but it happens... and it happens like 1 a week.

      not all nor all the time... but almost always 1st to 2nd is hard... same as 5th to 6th.

      The clutch pedal lets out low now
      ( same here... i've learned to drive it... but it wasnt pretty... and its a lot lower than factory... )
      , and when I managed to make my way home (20 mile drive) the clutch was chattering at idle, pretty bad.
      mine chatters, but it isnt BAD... only way to notice it its with the radio off.
      Everything came out correctly and went back together correctly, torqued properly. Shifter cables adjusted (followed proper procedure and ended up doing it like 70 times), slave cylinder bled (figured that may be the issue), and I have no Idea what could be wrong.
      mee too...!i have bleed the clutch several times...!

      What I'm assuming is the clutch is a shorter height than the factory dual mass and it's not disengaging all the way, but I used the sachs TO bearing you guys sent me, I don't know if that makes up for the bit of extra travel the pedal needs to reach the new flywheel... I'm confused, and I want to light my car on fire.
      i'm also voicing my concerns! at first i thought this was cause of several different issues, such as improper torque, or improper install, or the tranny just being abused... now i know what the cause is.

      i'm using the 19lb flywheel for the 6speed GTI tranny... stock clutch.

      i dont want to light the car on fire... but i agree..! clutch engament isnt the best all the time..!!

      i'm sorta happy to know that it isnt my driving skills, nor the install or anything other than the flywheel.

      i dunno... again, i feel happy to know that the causes arent a bad tranny, bad install, etc.. rather it is the flywheel...

      not really happy about it... dont like it, and as of right now, i wouldnt recommend the product... but i do have to say that the service and price were good.

      and when i bought this, on the phone... i was told about the chatter, no one said anything about hard shifts, and other stuff.

      Rebleed the system. The purchasers on page 1 had no issues. NGP used this flywheel on their turbo 2.5 rabbit.

      The overall stack height on this kit and the oem kit are the same as measured mounted on crank flange.

      guys, just in case... i wasnt trully bashing...

      its just that i have some issues, that may or may not be related to the product... i said that i cant recommend the prod just because i dont know if my issues are caused by it...

      and by voicing my issues, maybe someone had a solution!

      thans for the time of the call today.!

      it was all good, and i think you are right, and that the flywheel has nothing to do with my "issues"

      anyways, have a nice day.

      its kind of hard to get into some gears... i think its the short shifter... it was hard to install... so maybe we left it a lil crooked.

      i am not really worried, cause the car is fine, and driver perfect... just the shift things every now and then... but per my conv with FST, a lot of things will "fix itself" once i convert my ecu.
