Help Clutch differences

My clutch has given up on my GT BLACKLINE 1.9jtdm what is the difference between changing to a solid flywheel compared to the dual mass version obviously the price is one of them

You never have to replace your single mass again.. Hence its just a steel plate, a dual mass has springs and cogs to cushion gear changes and remove engine vibrations... Me personally I think that's what your clutch plates for... It also weighs a lot less, and from what I've heard it sharper on acceleration.

Let me know if you go ahead with a single mass, as I have same car and like to know your thoughts & experience

As above, you'll never have to change the dmf again so future clutch changes should be cheaper. I have a smf, sharper gear change, can take more torque. Might get slightly more noise/vibration but not a lot. All in all I'd say it's worth doing.

Do standard clutches fit the smf or do you have to buy one percific to the smf

to my knowledge you have to buy a different clutch to accomodate the SMF conversion, I to have it and IMHO under 210 BHP don't bother..


however if your plan is to tune and go down the hybrid turbo route it almost certainly the only set up which will take the power without slippage.

You'll need a clutch specific to the conversion as the clutch has the damping springs built into the clutch plate. There are a few conversion kits about for the 1.9.

There is one know from AP, part #SFC47016 though it mainly ships from Italy for some reason. The link is to a possible uk supplier:
AP Automotive Prod. SFC47016 - Clutch Kit 4in1 Flywheel Conversion Kit - Eclipse Auto Parts

No prices on their website but prices from europe are around the 200 to 230 euro mark which is generally a bit cheaper than a clutch and dmf kit.
