Hey forum, I'm new to the cite so I'm just going straight to the point, I have a 99.5 a4 Quattro with the 1.8t, bought the car with a out of the world DIY shifter fix with a hose clamp, messed the transmision so it's being rebuilt, since this is going to be a daily 15 psi driver, what clutch would the better to get for this car with the 300awhp target? Thinking of getting stage 2 clutch with the resurface flywheel , any thoughts ?

When you say Stage 2? There's so many brands out there. You should be a little more specific on what you brand you're looking to buy. How do you want to get 300awhp? What mods? There's a lot of builds here that can help you.

A 228mm stage 2 street clutch won't be enough for a 300whp A4 1.8t Quattro, at that point you will need a clutch that is rated at about 400 ft/lbs or higher.

If you got the money go 240mm single mass fly with a CM FX400 6 puck.

I'm just looking around places for prices and specs, the car will have for start k04-15 turbo, Godspeed FMIC 400-600 injectors depending which I get, Apr stage 1 chip, and will be boosting between 10-15 psi daily driver, short shifter and later on some other mods

This should be a good clutch to work with the stock fly right?[:/]

Take a look at our 1.8T Lightweight Flywheel and Clutch Combo. You will find that our Stage 1 kit will handle more power than your stock 1.8T could produce without building your engine and doing so without sacrificing driveability. This is because we use the OEM B7 RS4 pressure plate which will give you that sweet OEM feel yet, allow you to do back to back launches without issues (after the clutch is broken in of course).


You can find the kit on our website HERE! (http://jhmotorsports.com/shop/catalog/jhm-lightweight-flywheel-and-clutch-combo-with-b7-rs4-pressure-plate-for-b5-b6-a4-18t-p-1231.html)
