You'll do better with Sachs then with anything else: http://www.sachsperformance.com/Sac.../T5-169-kW-;-03/2007-:::2_1257_2795_3961.htmlToday i was driving in my tuned S40. And when i wanted to overtake a car in 3th gear i notice that
the rpm's went up but no acceleration... I think a clutch upgrade is needed soon. Who has a good experience with what upgrade?
Well, I did a K16 swap 6 months ago and stock clutch is still holding but here I must emphasize the fact that my tune was adjusted to have 500 Nm of max torque (340whp, 384 hp at the flywheel).@Kova--I've also heard good and bad about Spec. All the clutch reviews (all different applications) are night and day. One person says the Spec clutch is the best clutch ever with perfect engagement and great holding power, and then someone else will say that theirs died or started slipping after practically no mileage lol. Don't know what to believe, and don't wanna find out the hard way lol. If my clutch goes, I don't know what to replace it with because I want to do a k16 swap eventually, and I only want to change my clutch once. I'm not familiar with the Helix stuff and I don't know how an "R" clutch would hold the torque of a fat K16 map.
Torque is bending rods, not the peak power itself. As long as you keep max torque to less then 540 Nm you can keep stock internals. Assuming of course the tune is done properly..mine is giving up about after one month driving with 501nm. maybe a bit more now it's below 10 degrees celcius.
but as i sayd the car allready done 170.000 km's. But Holland has no hills that helps i guess.
when you go above 400hp, i think you need internal mods as wel right? darton sleeves en rods etc.
