    Hi guys , been doin some research as I'm after a new clutch for the Cupra.

    Was looking into the vr6 and g60 setup, but not sure what power this can handle?

    Or an anyone recommend a good clutch kit to go for? Needs to be capable of 250 - 300bhp.

    Cheers !

    the vr6 clutch can hold upto 300ftlb and I've seen quite afew fitted to k04 and k04 hybrids.
    Try and get a smooth map so there's less strain on everything :)

    UH OH!!

    I can see another "don't ever buy anything from techniclutch" thread coming soon

    apparently alot of their "uprated kits" are standard parts painted nice colours

    Even if that was the case, id still be happy with the price for the kit next day delivered brand new at less than £200 :)

    im changing mine out of precaution and being proactive rather than reactive, going to USC at santa pod and the last thing i want is the clutch to go pop lol. did 126.5k miles, 30k+ of those on a k03s running 210-220bhp so its done me proud!

    Just don't buy to cheap changing a clutch isn't a 5 min job so don't want to be taking in out again for awhile.

    Ok, cheers for the info ! I've decided I'm putting myself on the scrounge...
    Does anyone have a uprated clutch for sale? Or a smf? / or even both bits I could buy to get me through for the time being? Doesn't matter too much about cond as long as there is still some life left lol. Failing that anyone have any ideas where I could find a used one as a cheaper option? Other forums with for sale sections etc...

    Sad times hey... I can see how easy it could be to fall into there ebay trap, with selling just about any clutch kit and flywheel package going...

    Is it advised to change the clutch and fly bolts at the time of a new clutch? I know it's probably worth doing while its all apart but wandering if its something that needs to be done or whether its just something people do?
