Advice on replacement clutch purchase


Recommended Posts

Preparig to put a clutch into my 99TT 2001. I have flashed my car and have some other power additives (bolt on) and can tell my clutch is not gonna last much longer with new driving style. With increase in HP and boost I am looking at RS clutch from suncoast. There name is mentioned frequently and seem reputable. Anyone have one of these clutch packages installed or have a suggestion on what clutch to purchase which works reliably for day to day street driving and will possibl be a improvement on stock replacement?

Thank you :thankyou:

I too have the Ultimate package from Kevin installed three weeks ago. I bought my TT with 24K miles and the clutch was already slipping.

I was told that the LWFW was noise, grippy and difficult to drive, and I must not be the conisor driver because I found it to be more predictable on take off, I hear no noise (but I also put an aftermarket stereo in the car so I can hear it just fine @ 80 with the top down so maybe I don't hear so well anymore), and easy to drive. I have 0 regrets and love the fact the it hooks up hard enough to chirp the 4 tires on dry pavement.

Next I'll add the ECU program. When I first got the car the clutch would only slip under really hard acceleration, and not knowing the feeling of fast I thought the throttle response was stupendous. Now I know I can get it to bog. (Kind of sounds stupid when I write it, but I really couldn't tell the difference in slip and hard acceleration because it only happend above 80 at first). I can use the the extra torque (only goes to .6 bar now).

+1, I would call Kevin. I run his performance clutch (dual mass) and could not be happier with it or with his help.
