Stock clutch torque hold
« on: October 17, 2016, 02:23:45 PM »
So I'm in a dilemma with my clutch. I just bought another sky a couple of months ago after mine had been unfortunately flooded... The car is in great shape even better than the last when I had bought that one. I picked it up with only 41k miles on her. I got home and had the car stock for about 3 weeks and then threw on a e47 tune and intake. The car runs fantastic and clutch held great. Well it wasnt until about 3 weeks after having the e47 tune on that the clutch had begun to slip. Now I've heard some people say this and that about our stock clutch. I'm a good driver with a clutch as I have driven manual transmission my entire life.

My questions is this: As of the near future, I only want to do full bolt ons and e47 tune on stock turbo. I do plan to go with a zzp zfr later, but not in the super near future. So should a brand new oem clutch be ok to handle the roughly 400 wheel ft lbs of torque that a stock turbo full bolt ons set up can make? I've had the DDM works performance clutch and it is absolutely fantastic! However, with a stock turbo and full bolt ons, I believe it would be quite excessive for a smaller amount of power.

Can anyone chime in on how their oem clutch is doing and on your power level?

Are you still on stock clutch by any chance? How is it holding up?

350/350 HP not at the wheels the 350 TQ is real since it has a large wheel turbo on the K04.
This was the original large wheel upgrade and the tune is from DDM.

I think you should get an aftermarket clutch with your proposed plan.
