It's come to the point where my clutch now slips under any positive manifold pressure. It's pretty bad. We're talking tach skipping up 2k rpms.
I've done searches but i'm still a bit confused at the majority of all this nonsense. And I know you guys have seen a million billion clutch topics.
Let's get down to it. I'm broke.
Right now making a weinerish 300/300 whp wtq but we've all got plans for future power. So i'm looking for a clutch that could hold up to say 380-400whp/tq
Nothing too crazy fancy. Nothing too crazy expensive. Daily Driven.
I'm learning. What materials are availible. Advantages and disadvantages of different materials. "Pucks" and all that nonsense. I just need a good post by soemone to help me on this one. I'm calling Bimmerworld tomorrow. I need this ordered yesterday.
Lightweight flywheel isn't exactly "ideal" for a turbo car. Great for N/A and s/c.
My choices have been trimmed down to a Clutchmasters Stage III Kevlar + new flywheel, all purchased from Bimmerworld. Or a Sachs Stage III. The Sachs is definetely cheaper but im big on company loyalty and Bimmerwolrd is amazing.
