I have been reading some old posts and the sachs organic clutch keeps popping up, I dont mind paying a few quid extra for a good clutch but wheres cheapets to get it from? also is it supplied with a stronger pressure plate? as a slipping clutch can be cured with a stronger pressure plate normally so no point having a higher friction clutch if the pressure plate wont clamp it any harder.

any other reccomendations? I want to stick with the dual mass fly wheel set up as the cars a daily drive, and will be doing 15 - 20k a year, I also use the car for towing once in a blue moon, normally my small caming trailer when going away but also once or maybe if im lucky twice a year towing the track car to trackdays.

cheers

Karl.

You may have read this then

After A LOT of research into this I recently fitted an uprated Sachs pressure plate together with an OEM clutch disc.

Much cheaper than the full Sachs kit and will handle up to 350lbs/ft torque, for a remapped TDI this is more than adequate.

However, if you're planning on a bigger turbo/injectors then I would probably go for the full Sachs organic clutch kit.
I posted it on another thread tonight as well [:D], you could try JBS, AMD R-Tech etc for starters [y]

don't work I know the issues, hence sticking with the dual mass, esp when the transmission was designed with dual mass from the start, from talking to people within the industy I work in there was issues with certian van maker when they had issies with their new dual mass fly wheels... as a quick fix they put solid fly wheels back on and then after a few months started to get more and more vans coming back with tranmission issues where the viabrations passed on where destroying the gear boxes!

also I know they sound like a tank.. again not good on my daily... now does anyone have a supplier for this uprated sachs pressure plate and a part number?

I presume yours is a diesel! as you dont have your banner filled in. I think these are the part numbers copied from my build thread....this pressure plate and this organic clutch disc HTH
The clue was in the thread title "where to get uprated clutch for remapped 130pd? also uprated pressure plate?" [:p][:DD]
