240mm 30lb Billet Steel SMF For VW/Audi Longitudinal Manual Swaps
1040 billet steel flywheel for manual swaps in VW/Audi longitudinal platforms (B5, B5.5, A4, C5). Works with both 5 speed 01A and 6 speed 01E transmissions with no spacer plate needed and uses a stock BHW TDI starter. Comes with ARP flywheel bolts and 12.9 capscrews for the pressure plate. Flywheels are made in house on our 3 axis CNC from US made 1045 steel sourced from Peerless Steel. After machining, the friction face is ground and then the flywheel is zero balanced.
Installing the OEM clutch hydraulic line in a B5.5 chassis when doing a manual swap is an absolute nightmare that requires the brake master and booster to be loosened. It is strongly recommend to use the USP Motorsports braided stainless clutch line that installs in less than 2 minutes as opposed to 2+ hours for the OEM line.
By popular demand, we have recently switched to using South Bend Clutch kits. They created a kit exclusively for our flywheel.
The stage 1 K70403-VW-O organic kit is rated for 325lbft.
The stage 2 K70403-VW-OCE half organic, half ceramic is rated for 375lbft.
The stage 3 K70403-VW-SS-TZ uses a kevlar disk with a higher clamping pressure plate for a rating of 430lbft.
**INSTALLATION NOTE** In a handful of cases, a very slight interference has been found at the 5:00 area inside the bell housing. If this issue is found, less than 1/16" needs to be ground off an area smaller than 1 square inch. The case is approximately .225" thick in this area so no strength is sacrificed. The most logical explanation is that multiple sets of molds for the transmission cases were used in production and over the years, some very slight dimensional variances exist in non critical areas.
