Coinsidentally, on my way home from the test drive after doing the .658 5th gear, my clutch grenaded a mile from home. I'm actually very happy it did this on a test drive and not on my way to work on Monday. What is "the" hot clutch upgrade to get for our cars? I will stay away from the OE DMF and aim towards a solid flywheel. I read that the G60 and the VR6 clutch is a good set up. Who sells a kit with these parts? I'll be ordering on Monday. Looks like I have to take those 400 horses via Audi S4 everyday to waork again. Can you hear the toilet flushing my fuel money? LOL!

Thanks for your help,

Jim

Thanks! I'm going to order a VR6/G60 Sachs kit from TDIParts on Monday. This will be a nice upgrade for my commuter car!

Thanks,

I removed the trans today. The clutch looks perfect, as does the flywheel (from the outside). My trans blew a gear/synchro/ring/something between 1st and 4th. I pulled the gearbox cover to expose 5th gear(s) and everything is perfect. So I have a VR6/G60 flywheel/clutch kit coming; now I need an EGR trans. I ordered a new rear main seal and engine mount bolts. I will be buying something on Monday. I just don't see how this happened while tooling along in 3rd gear through a neighborhood? My luck is unbelievable!

I'll chalk this up as just Bad Luck. It was full of fluid. All I can say is that I have no way of knowing the history of how the car was driven the 140,000+ miles before I purchaced it, so who knows....perhaps it was abused and I got the shitty end of the stick. Either way, I'm still under buget with this car.... :)

The dual mass flywheel and clutch I took out were perfectectly servicable. Are these worth anything to anyone? I will give them away for shipping if anyone wants them...
