Are you going to get the new flywheel balanced to suit a v6?

I've purchased the flywheel off ebay and precision clutches in somerset have made me up a 228mm clutch plate with a better performance material and 14 teeth. However the pressure plate is a bit harder to find. No one will commit to a discussion unless i give them a registration number which of course i don't have.

Also the company who I thought was ok, TechniClutch, has a few terrible reviews , enough to make you steer clear. Luckily i just missed buying from them.

Anyways the courier has quoted 2 weeks to deliver the flywheel. I dont want to wait any longer so I thought FI and reattached the dual mass flywheel and clutch with the engine, added the gearbox and lowered it it the engine bay.

Only I've dislocated a finger in the progress and now back in the house realised in the melle didn't check if i'd put the clutch plate in the right way round....

onwards and upwards

I'm trying to type this with one hand and its bleddy painful.

So after a lot of research finally found a company that was willing to talk. Brought the LUK kit yesterday and ....

it only all bleddy fits. :o

I've got a c20xe lightweight flywheel, custom 228mm plate for the R28 box, new LUK c20xe pressure plate. The final piece in the jigsaw was moving the concentric slave forward as the 'height' of the new assembly is 20mm less than the 'height' of the existing dual mass flywheel. So I removed the concentric from the box, then removed the bearing and with very gentle pursuasion fitted the traditional taller clutch release bearing to the concentric housing and result !!! its securely on. The new bearing in 18mm taller so takes up the 20mm defecit.

So the new setup is just under 10kg in total weight compared with 16kg for the dual mass. And it a new better quality clutch plate and new LUK pressure plate and bearing. Total cost £235. The existing dual mass was very tired so I'm chuffed to bits. All this on the back of the y32se
