    It was a Sachs "power clutch" which was installed when first converted 6+ years ago. Low milage, as the cars low milage, but I was never impressed with its "power" claims to begin with.

    Its getting one of my old hand me down Spec stage 3 clutchs I have removed from my ibiza.

    hey Bill,

    how you estimated the Hybrid plus for durability? In comparison to the hybrid with a K04 compressor?

    I have at the moment the CR I K04 compressor. Think about the winter to rebuild the Plus. Would you recommend it? Or is not yet perfected the hybrid plus?

    Regards

    no issues with it.. Its a K04 hybrid inside a K03.. You will need to use the K04 comp housing however to accommodate the 2283 wheel as the K03 ones are not big enough.

    Bill, the issues you faced when fitting this turbo, contact with the head etc...

    Will these issues be rectified on the units they sell from now on, or is this up to the buyer to sort when fitting?

    I cant comment for CR..
    For units supplied/fitted by me, they will be modified to fit.

    The unit was commissioned by me.. what you get from them direct will not be the same as I did mods here.

    thankyou.
    Its retaining the understated look we wanted.
    intercooling is nicely controlled now.
    boost is running 20-22psi currently.. I will see if I can crank it up a little earlier on now its got cooling in hand.

    some things I will be testing on it shortly.. coils, induction tweak to its 3" TIP ;) etc...

    Its rapido yes. 970kg, 305bhp hauls pretty well.
    3" vbanded Turbo back 3 box system sounds mint I have to say too..

    some vids when I can get it to record sound!
