View Full Version : New Cluth and Flywheel
I want to chenge my cluth to a heavyweight unit and flywheel to a lighter one so that my Ibiza Cupra revs faster. I have tried many tunners and they dont knoe exactly which one is it.
Does any one exactly wich VW 1.8T or Audi uses the exact same Clutch/Flyweel parts?
The reason im asking is that apparently there are Cluth/Flywheel differences between the different 1.8T that VAG makes and most tunner know more about VW and Audi than SEATS.
yeah i see your predicament
ill check all the part nos for a standard IBIZA 1.8 20 VT nd see if they fit anything on VW/AUDI etka too
worth a try
Yeah can you find out if it is the same gearbox. as then i can fit a Golf MK4 short shift to the Ibiza.
you want to make your cupra rev FASTER...?? bloody ell..
I find that once the turbo is spinning from around 1800rpm the revs climb fast enough as it is standard. You hardly have chance to put your hand back on the wheel before you have to take it off again to change up...
with a lighter fly wheel you would have to drive with your hand on the gearstick all the time.
Would you not find that due to the relatively small engine capacity that once you start going up any sort of slopes the car would quickly lose power if you had a lighter flywheel..??
Intersting thought though to have faster revving.. would have to consider having sequential gear shift then.. lol
A slightly lighter flywheel makes the engine rev up and down faster when the clutch is in or in neutral. This would make it a lot easier to match engine speeds when braking and shifting down.
Also when you want to start moving in an uphill you have to rev the engine with the clutch in and it takes a while for it to get to lets say 3-4K RMP, enought to get the car moving in an uphill.
Eventhough the engine is powerfull its just not rev happy. Compare it in newtral to lets say a four cilinder BMW M3 and youll find the thing revs up and dows almost like a 4 cilinder motorcyle.
As for regular street use, I find from past cars that a lighter flywheel doesnt really add horsepower, just livens up the engine. i dont want to overdoit, just a slighly lighter rotational mass flywheel will do, say 10-25% less.
riveroll ...................i know someone tht can do the flywheel if youare interested but no idea how much for the shipping.
Im very interested, can you send me the details or contact info?
then go to the motorsport link....plus my old car is there
Asked about this clutch thing from my local seat/golf dealer, and he said that golf 1.8T has the same clutch with seat ibiza 1.8T, So I ordered this:
SACHS Power Clutch
Lightweight flywheel/228mm clutch conversation for 1.8T
I will install it in 2weeks, so I will inform you guys more after this.
I REALLY HOPE it goes to my car, if not my local dealer will get killed. :hammer:
Finally installed this Sachs power clutchkit to my car, whooooooooooAA! :D :D IT'S GREAT! Fitted great, Revs better, DOESN'T SLIP, lighter to push clutchpedal than before..Just one word. AMAZING
