Clutch slipping

Recommended Posts

I have an 02 996TT-X50. It has the GT2 K24 turbo and GT2 intercoolers. It also has the fabspeed exhaust with the Gemballa programing. The car is putting out 570 HP. The clutch was never upgraded. Now it slips during hard accelerations. Slips starts around 3500~4000 RPM.

My questions is. Is there any adjustment I can make or should I just upgrade to a stronger clutch? Can anyone recommend a unit which I should go with?

Thanks

Ed.

Have 2001 996TT Evo stage 2 clutch started slipping, installed Sach 3500 lb pressure plate and new clutch. As far as I know there isn't any adjustment. The clutch slave cylinder with power assist does not have a problem with the heavier pressure plate. It has been in for 10,000 miles, no problems.

Good luck,

Larry :drive:

Thank you Larry

I'll give that a try.  Where do I get one of those clutch and pressure plate?

Check with your Porsche parts suppliers most will handle Sach products. If you need part numbers I will beable to get them tomorrow, let me know.

Good luck,

Larry

Thanks again Larry.

The part number will be great. Going fishing for 10 days. Hope the car will be done when I get home.

Thanks again.

Larry

Did you get a chance to get the part number for the clutch?

Thanks

Hi, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, had a alarm condition on my boat down in the Harbor. This EVO link will ID the pressure plate/ clutch, your locate Porsche parts dealer can ID the correct Sach's P/N which could be cheaper than EVO.

I got my parts guy to look at the EVO site and gave me the parts, I didn't retain the P/N data.

Good luck,

Larry

Thanks Larry

I'll see if I can find one before I head off to Mexico.

Alarm on your boat? I see you have one of those bottomless pit also.

Where are you located at in California?
