      Personally I don't notice any chatter, I've had a couple random times at idle where I've noticed a slight throw out bearing noise. It was very faint though. I should throw out there that I've got a bfi stage 2 trans mount so all noises are amplified in the cabin. Before that never noticed any difference from stock except how quick the motor winds up.

      I personally do notice the chatter, but it doesn't bother me. Sometimes it's more noticeable than others, and it honestly seems random. At first it bothered me, but only because I had started driving my car after having the engine replaced (and before I took back the car, it had a super loud pulley noise), and I was listening for every single little thing that might not be normal; and I had no clue what the sound was. I only made the connection when the sound went away when I put the clutch in, and after that it didn't bother me anymore.

      My rabbit does rev faster, and while shifting, the revs fall faster too. The engine does shut down quicker as well when I turn the ignition off, but I have also had the engine stay on after a deeper stall.

      Not sure if this is attributable to the replacement engine, or the clutch, but the rabbit does feel faster to me. All in all, I have no complaints.

      Pre-dampened discs are available for our clutch kits.

      We put one in our customers MkV Golf on Monday 26th. and what a huge difference it made.
      Very quiet with a single mass flywheel.

      Finally got my stage 1 clutch, pressure plate, and steel billet flywheel. No shifting issues with NLS short shifter and 42 draft designs shifter bushings set. Also had my Wavetrac LSD installed and a new timing chain. Couldn’t be happier with the new clutch setup, much easier to drive with this new setup. The real test will be this weekend, going to Roebling Road this weekend for a HPDE.

      I'm working on my new to me 2005.5 2.5.
      I had it about a week when the Clutch Slave failed.
      I had the same hard shifting, lurching into reverse and all that was described above.

      I tried old school bleeding and it would come up but not stay, so I replaced the Slave cylinder.

      I've been through hell trying to get the new slave bleed,
      Used my reverse flow pump (no luck),
      Standing gravity bleed (nope didn't work either),
      Even a pressure bleeder (well, that gave me disengagement for about 10 minutes),
      Then after letting it sit for an hour cold, while I re-read every section of the Bently DVD again, I discovered that both seals on the metal hose ends were weeping.

      Did you guys replace those two little seals when you changed the clutches.
      I know the Bently says inspect and replace if showing wear, but both of mine looked just fine. They had been fine right up until I disconnected them.

      Just a thought

      Many of our clutch kits include a new slave with o-ring.
      I always recommend a new o-ring when removing the clutch hose, the old o-ring will loose its shape as its compressed into the hose.

      We also recommend filling the slave with brake fluid during the clutch install, this is done to expedite the bleeding process.

      Well my Jetta has the Hat or shouldered style seal, instead of an o-ring.
      And the new FTE slave cylinder did not have new seals.

      I was just pointing it out as a possible issue for the two other members that had issues with the new clutch not releasing properly.

      Will a lightweight flywheel help with the rev hang or is that only solved with a tune?

      Flywheel won't change it, the issue is the software coding.
      The info below is from the Mk5 Self Study Program.

      Clutch Position Sensor G476
      The Clutch Position Sensor G476 is a Hall effect device that signals the engine control module that the clutch pedal has moved.
      This deactivates the cruise control system and briefly reduces fuel to the fuel injectors to prevent engine shudder during the resulting gear change.
      For additional information on the accelerator, brake and clutch pedal assembly please refer to
      SSP 861403 “The new Jetta Steering and Suspension”.

      If I was to use a fwd 02Q 6spd and want to cater for upto 600bhp/550tq what would be the flywheel and clutch choice you'd recommend. (Would prefer slip clutch rather than paddle.) thanks..

      2008 - Exige S2. Sold
      2008 - 1.8T 350bhp fwd Corrado. Sold.
      2009 - R32 280bhp fwd Corrado. Sold

      "Classified" The '06 Jetta
      06-20-2013 07:24 PM #115
      doing a 2011 2.5 CBTA swap in my 2006 2.5 (BGP) Jetta. Have a 5spd manual transmission and am looking to replace the clutch.

      I have the Integrated Engineering intake manifold on the way and a tune to follow, so I will have a bit more power than stock. Theres a slim chance I might pick up an exhaust header as well. I know I dont need a crazy 'stage 4' etc clutch. Simply looking for a replacement that can handle a 'touch' more power/torque.

      Any recommendations?

      (btw my swap build is in the 2.5l section)

      Will this flywheel work with an 02s? If not, which flywheels do y'all sell work with an 02s?

      You would need an 02A kit, but I would prefer to hear from you what your specific needs are.

      Just curious, is there an upgraded clutch to work with the stock dual mass flywheel? Maybe up to 250 WTQ?

      I know that sucker is heavy, but I like my quite ride

      There is only one clutch made for that dual mass and that is stock, sorry I don't know any performance dual mass clutch kits.

      If you decide to go single mass flywheel conversion, we got you covered with several options.
