I have just fitted a K03s on my AGU and now have clutch slip! [:(] Bad times. What are my options to get this changed? I hear about this VR6 clutch being able to fit. Whats the best thing to do as i do plan to map my car soon aswell.

think you probably just uprate the pressure plate, or go for the g60/vr6 combo.

Better to buy the whole kit if you can, I just need the flywheel

I did the VR6/G60 combo last October on my AGU.

There is definitely a very very slight rattle with the clutch up in neutral. Nothing to worry about though.

Also when coasting in gear (say down a hill, no throttle) you can definitely feel the reduced refinement. Very light vibration and rotational noise.

I am very alert to car changes though, some people might not notice it but for me these changes in refinement were obvious.

However, I would recommend the setup 100%, lighter clutch and no DMF to worry about.

Clutch not slipped yet...

The VR6 clutch (LUK) I bought from an online clutch supplier (about £90 inc delivery IIRC).

I ordered a G60 flywheel from my local TPS. Was about £160 inc but they know me very well down there and the following week handed me an old G60 flywheel, which I then handed straight back! They then gave me an envelope with £35 in it. Good eh? Now that's service!

The fitting I got done by a local independant who specialises in clutches, £188 inc. Although he did break my gear linkage plastic s elector arm (but they break so easily when old).

So a touch over £400 got the VR6/G60 combo fitted.

Chris, in all gears bar 1st it slips from 2k to 5k like itsw nothing! What else could it be. Cars not been for a cluch change in 95 thousand miles. When you hear about this G60/VR6 combo what cars are they actually from? Because if i ring a autofactors and ask for a vr6 clutch they will ask for more info.

I can provide all the part numbers you need including those for the bolts when I get home. The bolts cost about £15 in total.

Someone might beat me to it...

Will have to dig the part numbers out tomorrow now, only just got in.

Personally I didn't like the look of the clutch replacement, it's a muscle job and I haven't got the engine supports etc that make the job easier.

£188 well spent in my opinion. Maybe if you have someone to help it's easier.

I did the k03 > k03s turbo diy/guide but the clutch looks like a 6 spanner job to me!!!

My recommendation would be to stick to a G60 flywheel. They are about 1lb lighter (@20lbs) than the DMF and as I've mentioned a lack of refinement creeps in certain situations. The ECS is 14lbs IIRC!!!

With much lighter flywheels you'll get faster throttle response but the RPM will drop more rapidly when you come off throttle. The car will slow down significantly quicker when lifting off making it less of a pleasure to drive IMHO.

Also neutral 'rattle' and coasting noise will increase significantly. Some people don't mind the reduction in refinement... but it's not for me!

This man is spot on! I got the ECS stage 1 kit with the 14lbs flywheel. Biggest mistake I made as I'm the same, I notice the little things and believe me the rattle is noticeable, not just on decelaration but also in aceleration at the lower rev range. Once you got the revs up and the car plodding along then the rattle isn't obvious.

Awesome Gti do the same ECS stage 1 kit but with the G60 flywheel (20.5lbs). Works out £370 inc VAT.
