      thats different because its longitudinal, the main issue is the twisting related with the transverse engines.

      some bracing and solid mounts may help per one person being the only one that has done custom braces and track bars on his R32 with a twin disk spec I believe. .

      Evo's have no problem with clutchmasters and exedy twin disks.

      because they are different cars different mounts and different everything. there are tons of this clutches that work on super hight hp 1.8t's but coudnt hold for sh** in the R's

      post the AWTQ numbers of a 4 banger and compare to the AWTQ of a 6 banger. it doesnt need to be an AWD dyno either.


      read this and see for yourself the many blown clutches, trannis and more clutches that r32s break due to bad designs, use of stock parts in high torque rating kits and many other things.

      2.3L with a 6262


      62mm vs 67mm


      Id say thats decent tq for a 4cylinder. The 2.3 has way more over the 2Ls but oh well. Not going to hijack this thread.


      The build looks dope. The triple plate will work fine just many options that will probably work just as good. Overkill on the clutch can result in other problems with drivetrain. Id rather replace a clutch than a transmission. My build I have the weak link in the axles and clutch to help save the stock o2a.

      did you read the thread? do you have actual experience with this on an R32? clutches blew up destroying the transmission housings and sometimes the whole tranny by many others. I am not saying that the clutches are garbage in other applications but has been a long time to get a good one for the R specifically.

      boost comes later in there compared to a VRT. torque spike low rpms = destruction.

      were are the 6 cyl #'s from an engine with the same turbo and psi as the 2.3 you posted? good torque yes comparison to a 6 cyl NO.

      again 2.3 from an evo cannot be compared to a VW 6cyl ever because they dont share anything in common.

      I am just trying to keep someone from finding out the hard way and the OP seems to have done its research well ahead of time.

      I will stop now the thread jacking.

      Chris Green runs one in his 9 second VR6 powered S4 with no issues
      Just wanted to clear things up a bit, I am 99.99% sure Chris is using a tilton clutch in the S4, its a S4 transmission mated to a vr6 motor, so its a audi S4 tilton clutch, not a CM twin disk for an O2A.

      I know he sells alot of the CM twin disks, and swears by them to hold power, but I dont even know if they make a CM twin disk for the audi trans

      Well I wouldn't recommend the Tilton since he's had a bunch of problems with it. I guess I forgot he is still running the Tilton so disregard that. But his Jetta ran a CM, Jeremy with the 208mph VR6 runs one, and Todd P with the MK3 1.8T runs one as well. I'm running one now so let's see. But I mean some applications work better than others I guess but I never really heard too many bad things about CM. Heard more from Spec though that's for sure.

      I have done as much research as possible about clutches for the R32 and the only one that has ZERO complaints is the DM setup. I understand that most people have success on other VW and non VW platforms but they suck in the R32. Period.

      This is totally irrelevant. I don't have an S4 nor is a 9 sec or 19 sec s4 relevant to a clutch that works in an R32.

      This is also totally irrelevant. This isn't an evo forum so I am really not concerned what clutches work for them because they are COMPLETELY different.

      The clutch is absolutely not overkill. Just because it happens to be strongest clutch and the only one that works leaves me with no other options. I have no problem replacing $300 clutches if they have a decent life span but a 2k clutch that lasts two passes at the track is not my idea of saving the drivetrain.

      It honestly makes no difference to me what "Chris" is running in his car and what he is having success with because I have no plans of building an S4.

      Please STFU now this retarded. IF you have zero knowledge about a subject stop arguing it. Your cluttering this thread with stupid bull **** that is completely irrelevant to what is going on here, In case you missed the title this is an R32. Not and Evo, S4, Jetta or and other car that happens to have a working CM clutch in it. THERE IS NO CLUTCH THAT WORKS FOR THE R32 BESIDES THE DM CLUTCH.

      I hope everyone is done posting stupid **** now. It is obvious that no one has any experience with aftermarket clutches in the R32. So if everyone could please leave the bull **** out of this thread it would be greatly appreciated. I am buying the DM clutch regardless of how many people post about any other XYZ clutch that works in any other applications because they clearly do not work in the R32.

      huichox4 thank you for trying to set facts straight in here someone needs to.

      do you have first hand experience with an R32 turbo and high torque in this car?

      do you own one?

      your comments are like saying get a stock clutch and you will be fine....... just like all the other companies that created all of this failed clutches

      VF engineering was a CM distributor specifically for the R 32 stg 1, 2 and 3 kits that were supposed to withstand a lot of power.


      they had so many issues with them that they regret it. Streetwerke has CM make clutch kits to their specs for the R32 and when they work for moderate power they only last 10,000 miles average, less if you are putting more power.

      the DM kit can widstand 1200 awhp twist an input shaft and be taken out of the tranny, clean it and throw it to a new tranny without a problem. plus rebuilding it costs way less than replacing with a new kit from CM.

      South bend had to redesign their kits because they blew up several times. now they have an option for moderate to high power but not really sure how much they will last because they are very recent.

      you pay a lot for the DM kit at first but when you can rebuild it a few times the price might be even cheaper than what you will end up paying every 10000 miles for any other kit in the long run.


      dont come with speculations and sh** here. we are here to help not to talk out of our A** like you seem to be doing.

      that is the same guy I told you that had to stiffen up pretty much all the drive line with custom braces and track bars and full solid custom mounts. I have talked to him specifically about all of that.

      so you can buy your cheap a** SPEC but will end up spending way more than 2 DM kits at least to make it work

      plus the link you posted is a pretty much a one off kit like the whole car itself. and he blew his transfer case not so long ago due to the same issues we have ........... and its mounted on an MK2 with custom everything!!!


      you are not more than an online junky that knows how to google pics and vids man.

      you dont have to post what has been said

      we have done our leg work ........... thats said and done.

      Usually when you see 500whp or higher and you have any intention on driving the car hard you upgrade mounts and brace things. I hope the DM clutch works for you. Like I said earlier nice build but next time don't get all but hurt when people post their opinions. Its a forum and thats what happens.

      1. My "but" is not hurt
      2. Opinions are what spread incorrect information and are usually from people with no experience in the subject.
      3. I appreciate the kind words on the project.

      I am not trying to be a dick head I am simply stating that if you read through the full thread huichox4 posted earlier you would learn that every aftermarket clutch option besides the DM unit have failed on numerous R32s. Believe me I have done my homework on the clutch and learned from other failures with other clutches. Sorry for coming off as a dick I just don't feel like having this thread turn into a clutch debate that really is not needed.

      the disk diameter is bigger and some odd dimension which is not the most popular, therefore another reason why not too many aftermarket companies put a lot of reaserch time for the R32 clutches, on top of only 5000 potential customers when the car came out in the US.

      most kits from CM had issues with engagement and disengagement in the upper revs plus when you made good power they started to last pretty much nothing and or blew up destroying the tranny housings. I think it was more of a problem with the slave cylinder for the engagement issues, kits blowing up were due to some manufacturers using painted stock pressureplates plus other bad quaality of manufacturing. go through the lynk I posted before, that should mention most of it.

      Spec has not have great luck in VW's, its either hit or miss pretty much every one knows this.

      there might be at least one german or european manufacrurer that makes a quality piece but it ends up being too expensive also.

      Was this specific to the R32 or was this an overall vr issue?

      Should have some updates tomorrow. I removed the interior today and cleaned the hell out of everything since it was a mess. Working on where things are going to be placed such as the battery relocation, the surge tank, water box, water pump, and fuel pump. I remember seeing somewhere a picture of a batter installed where the monsoon amp is in the side of the hatch compartment I think I am going to try and get it to fit there.

      Surge tank and fuel pump in the hatch or under the car is the question.
      What is a rough price on new syncros installed in an R32 trans?

      Pump & Surge tank under the car/below the tank, because fuel pumps are gravity pulled unsures proper flow and less chance of pump starvation.
