Hey all.. Oldish thread i know
But as this thread is related to my issue i thought i'd post here
It keeps all the info in 1 place as well..
I have just upped the power on my Wifes 150bhp 2.4 JTD. Not sure of the increase but it's a fair hit.. It spins the wheels very easily of the line and torque steers like a Torque Steery thing
Straight away though, i noticed the clutch slips at around 1200 to 1700 rpm
It's ok if i fether the throttle until i'm above 2000rpm them floor it. But that kinda defeats the object of the more power
So ! Is my clutch on it's last legs ?? Or is it the increase in Torque that is making a more than healthy clutch, just slip because of the extra power ?
If it's the extra Torque then i'll put the power back to where it was and continue as normal until the Clutch starts to slip under normal conditions.. I can't afford to throw money into a new clutch at the moment if it's just for the sake of more power
The power upgrade is also a Fuel Economy mod as well.. So it would be silly to gain 15% better economy, but have to spend 300 quid upgrading the clutch
So would you say it's on it's way out anyway or maybe the increase in power..
