Hi,

I`ll probably stick a new clutch and flywheel on an AFN motor i`m fitting soon. 

Not sure whethere the single mass or dual mass flywheel is better though?

Bit more weight in a van i guess? It`ll run standard 110bhp but be remapped fairly soon afterwards to 140 ish.

What have others fitted to their engines?

Cheers, Mike

FWIW mine is single currently, it drives fine but I've a bit of chatter at tickover which it'd be nice to lose. Next time I'll try the dual-mass, probably Sachs 3000 951 790. Darkside Developments have them at a fair price.

Don't know what they're like but this seems like a fair price delivered

Transverse type I guess will work with std bus gearbox
Inline type for flipped Audi gearbox.

The ring gear is mounted at opposite sides of the flywheel.

Hope this helps.

Just out of interest a heavier flywheel will held create more torque I'm assuming???? But where in the rev range will that help? Higher up after the turbos done its bit??
