Default affordable T5 clutch options

Hey all, I'm finally doing the T5 swap on my 240 but I'm trying to cut some costs. Is the yoshifab stage 2 my best option? I'm probably pushing just over 200whp now and aiming for 250-300 in the next year or so.

For reference, I'm already slipping my autozone special NA 240 clutch and pressure plate in 3rd-5th and sometimes even second

I went with the yoshifab stage 2. I'm a believer of "buy once cry once" though.

Flat flywheel or doggie dish?

For flat, have you considered the SAAB Aero 9K clutch? Search, many here have run them..... I have one I'll be selling soon (NOS, NIB).

I just put a John V sooperbitchin flywheel in mine, I recommend it, just be prepared to extend the fork pivot ball quite a bit. It's considerably lighter and made out of less explody steel as opposed to cast iron. I got my T5 clutch from South Bend clutch.

You should consider the 940 TDI clutch; I bought one from the UK to use with a dog dish FW. You can read the details on torque holding capability in the M90 thread.

Mine was roundabout $350 shipped to the States. Of course you would need the clutch disc to match your trans input shaft..... just keep the thickness same as the stock TDI clutch. You don't have a plethora of options if you retain the DD flywheel.

Not sure about dogdish but with a flat flywheel you can get a viggen pressure plate for ~$90 and a random old ford (you'll have to look it up by size) disc for ~$50. Worked well until about 16psi on a 16t.

But since your LH2.4 you gotta spend like $250 on an sts flywheel if you want to use the flat one

never a good idea when it comes to clutches unless you love rr that trans all the time

sounds like you didnt let it break in or didnt machine the flywheel

Just across the river from me in PA is a place called HR clutch. They rebuild clutches to requested requirements. They can provide you with a good clutch for a +T. A friend just got one from them for his 1990 +T. It wasn't cheap but was an exact replacement rated for 300ftlb. http://www.hrclutch.com/ Give them a call or email with your needs. I've used a couple of clutches from them with good results.

Did you buy yours eons ago in the group buy like I did or is he still doing them? I found mine yesterday and decided I need to start thinking again on putting the T5 in my car.

He had some NOS, I got a little discount since I got one of the ones that the teeth on the edge were off a little. I'm using an lh2.2 distributor so it doesn't matter to me.
