    Hello all,

    Just come back home after getting a RTech remap :) (AWESOME SERVICE - GREAT GUYS)

    Niki said to me my clutch started slipping when they was doing the mapping so had to hold back the power a little (it made 346BHP on the rollers with just zaust + air intake).

    When giving it some on the way home I noticed it myself.

    Couple of questions for the brains on the forum:)

    1) What is the recommended performance clutch?
    2) Do I need clutch & flywheel or just clutch?

    Thanks guys

    Iv not long had a Helix organic & luk DmF fitted , supplied and recommended by AKS tuning , they said some customers are running just north of 400lbft torque with no problems,

    What are your future plans ? Power level ?

    How much torque did it make ?


    Rule of thumb is new clutch, new flywheel

    Hi mate, it made 325 (could have made more but Niki said he held back due to the clutch) I have attached Dyno

    Future plans - MAYBE a HPFP and stage2+ but that will be it. AKS tuning i will look into them mate cheers

    If stage2+ is your end goal the Helix organic & DMF should suffice I would have thought,

    I don't think you'll see much north of 400lbft on the ko4.from my findings AKS are as highly regarded as R-tech. The clutch was £765 delivered, AKS will fit for £200 last time I checked , wish I was closer it cost me £250 labour up here

    Awesome might sell the parts, AKS usually have these on the shelf ready to ship, no links unfortunately it's not that kinda part, I rang AKS so there was no mistakes.

    I think AKS help helix develop there clutches, last I'd read AKS had some sort of twin plate proof-type there developing with them

    I had my Helix clutch kit supplied and fitted by Awesome GTI. At the same time they also fitted a new LUK DMF that I supplied myself.

    I have the helix organic clutch kit with luk dmf supplied by awsome gti.

    Ive had the helix clutch on my cupra for 2 years now and it handles stage 2 fine. I had the darkside smf with the sach sre kit before and found the bitting point practically on the floor which was not great for traffic, hill starts and especially slow moving traffic. Too much vibration. After 18 months the gearbox main bearing gave out and had to be replaced. So i swaped to the helix kit. The helix organic kit is the sach sre pressure plate, a luk disc, dmf and luk slave cylinder.

    The bitting point on the helix kit is comfortable yeah it is heavy but you get used to it.

    Nice power from stage 2,
    Is the dip in the torque on the graph the clutch slip between 3000-4000rpm?
