Note: If your car has upgraded injectors and ecu, we recommend our Silent Design SouthBend clutches, especially if you would like the have the option to upgrade your turbo, or camshaft, or exhaust system later.
We can overpower these VR6/G60 style clutches, they can slip with a basic chip and injectors upgrade on the stock turbo. the torque rating of this clutch is at the flywheel, while the SBC are rated at the wheels like you would see on a dyno.
This Sachs "quiet" Clutch will be quiet, and is the best value clutch for stock TDI's
The next step up is the SBC New Silent Design.
The Southbend Silent design clutches are much better at handling the higher torque of a tuned engine: Which is what TDIs are all about!
