      Its a 225 on the back to see what a bit of stretch on a 9 with an ET of 13 looks like.

      You mention converting to 6MT however your stateside super twin Skela converted TO DSG because they claimed to be able to push more power consistently through the system. What are your thoughts on this?

      The DSG is better than manual, but manual can be stronger and cheaper to maintain.
      I will try to keep the DSG in the TT as its fab.

      That appears to be what he is running into, there is no shortage of money invested in that car but he is held up by the clutch packs. My guess is past that certain point (which is pretty damn high) it gets expensive to hold the power.

      Manual wise, I haven't really looked into it recently but I would say it cant be much cheaper. Everyone here has struggled endlessly with high HP clutches. Nothing special power wise on my end but my VF Stage 2 with "Whisper Quiet" LWFW is not what I paid for. The clutch holds great, OEM feels, love the FW as the car revs a bit snappier. The chatter though! I mean it is kind of embarrassing. Never heard any as loud as mine.

      I could actually enjoy one in the car with proper mods. I have an extra transmission now I supposed I could swap with someone.

      I have SSP clutch packs incl their add ons which are going to be replaced under warranty due to glazing. HPA offer a DSG upgrade but it's $6k I think and they need the box.
      UM have some good numbers on OEM clutch packs but I don't know how reliable it is.

      I too had the VF/Clutchmasters FW. sounds like a 1" ball bearing is bouncing around in there.

      I finally went thru hell, but got the REAL Sachs race engineered (no one but sachs touched it) w/ the Fourseasons heavier flywheel and life is grand!!

      As planned she has gone under the knife for a new clutch and hot parts are going to Zircotec for a little coating..

      DSG

      New wheels will be installed whilst she is asleep.

      I should be going offshore this week so i will not need her.

      I'll be selling the aluminum FW when I get your stuff Nathan (unless you want to part it), I want the 16.5lb or 20lb with a Fluidampr

      Nice work on the redone DSG, what kind of driveability/longevity do you expect with the modified clutches? I've driven a stock 3.2 and it was soft, would love to drive one with a flash and more attitude

      Clutch feel is still an OEM feel until the pedal is squeezed and the gates of hell open and the push into the seat is continous, not a spike of boost.

      Cheers,
      the badges are from the NSU cars.
      They are collectors items as NSU don't exist anymore.
      Im not sure i will be fitting them as my theme has changed slightly so they could be up for sale.

      No worries, i will keep you informed.
      Even a 2.1 can generate some good numbers but it will end up having its neck wrung to get to that power whereas the V6 can make the numbers with less stress..me thinks.
