What’s a good clutch to upgrade too & do I need to get the full upgrade kit or can I just upgrade the clutch

I personally use the Sachs SRE Clutch. Feels a lot better than the stock spongy clutch and it can hold stage 2 power. You have a choice between the 4 puck disc or the full faced disc. The 4 puck will hold more power. I highly recommend changing out your flywheel too.

I got my clutch kit and dual mass flywheel from Darkside Developments for about $1100. It comes with the throwout bearing and hardware as well.

You mind throwing a link for your clutch kit?

I have the same kit. Darkside sell their clutch kits through their sister company, Clutchstop.co.uk

http://www.clutchstop.co.uk/products...lutch-kit.html

I got my OEM Sachs DMF from autodoc.co.uk for £250

I'm enjoying it without crackles for the time being, but I'll probably switch back once my launch control gets sent over. I have to be obnoxious at the drag strip this weekend of course

Ended up cooking a coil on the s2 OTS map shortly after you posted lol. Grabbed some R8's and some new NGK's, running smoother than ever and just put in my Stratified order

I don't think my crackles are very loud. Is it because my exhaust is catless?

Catless here too and they can be pretty loud. If I'm under 3k they're not very loud. I can hear them as low as 2200 rpms, but its very faint. If I try to get pops at 4-5k after having high boost they're pretty damn loud. Sometimes I get the loud pops around 3-3.2k too though.l
