I have the Sachs performance clutch kit coming in but need a recommendation for a machine shop to modify the central area of the flywheel and also lighten and re-balance it? thanks
Please let us know how you like that CNS unit after it's installed & properly broken in... ! :haha2:I supported the clutch referred to above, but my clutch died last week and I took another route.
I picked up the CNS kit 2 days ago, to replace my oe clutch and flywheel. I can't claim I searched every single option out there but it seems CNS is the only kit that offers a 280mm disc + a dual mass flywheel. I made as much inquiries as I could, and found the gear lash and shatter noise on idle is hard to avoid with a LW flywheel, which comes with most aftermarket kits. 240mm and dual mass kits were available, but I really wanted an oversized disc, hoping that I don't have to change the clutch for a very long time. The kit also saved me the time and money spent to modify a flywheel to mate with a big disc. Plus CNS are luckily offering a good discount, and they have been tried by some members with no complains. So all in all there was enough pros to seal the deal. They usually don't sell the components separately but the rep. assured me they will work with me if the kit needs a rebuild .
It hasn't been installed yet like I said,I just felt obligated to share my experience as I supported one choice but went with another.
Did you buy directly from Sachs? I'm wondering because they said the PP they now sell is different than any of the ones for sale by US distributors. Who did the machine work on the Flywheel for you? I've tried contacting RRoberts since he had the same work done plus had the flywheel lightened but have not heard back from him yet. thanksJust did this over the holiday. Parts came out to $1000 for the disc and the PP. Taking down the center of the flywheel 2.1 per Sach cost me a whopping $50.
Pedal is slightly harder than stock but is still very soft imo

I ordered directly through Sachs and got the Kit which is the clutch disk and PP together which they offer a savings on. Also, the clutch disk is the same part # that you ordered but the PP is different. They said the new part number is smoother ie less pedal force needed but same torque capacity. It cost me 880 shipped plus I had them include a throw out bearing for the heck of it. All said and done $969 which I think is pretty decent and the best I could find on all three items.
I'm OK taking it to local shops for the ceter machining, but I want it lightened too which requires re balancing. So I'm being alittle more selective on who I let do the work. thanks for the advice.
Just got an email from Vac motorsports that says they can machine the flywheel for me. Yippie. Now I need to source a new flywheel. best price so far 475 on ebay.
