Do you have any idea how long they used the SRE pressure plate and clutch disc combo before the OEM DMF started to make noise? Do you know the power level of those cars?

One of these cars is a 2.0 TSI Scirocco with 278PS and 423Nm with around 30k miles on the stock DMF and with the Sachs pressure plate and clutch disk since last January.

The other is also a 2.0 TSI Scirocco with a K04 and Revo software, the owner is a member of this forum, and has about 37k miles on the ODO, but I know this one is used very very hard, it has now the stock pressure plate, disc and DMF but with a Leon Cupra R gearbox. About the power I would say around 380PS from some test with similar powered cars...

Hope this helps.

Interesting. Both cars are starting to get noise from the OEM flywheel though? I was hoping the OEM DMF would hold up a little better than that, especially at the 400Nm torque range.

Yes, both of them.

However the K04 Scirocco is making a lot of power, so in my opinion is not that strange that the OEM DMF is making noise.

Love it, runs perfect, still waiting on having other members drive it, but there have been no get togethers in Toronto.
No problem with cold weather.

Interesting, adding this to the list. What did you end up using for the clutch pedal stopper? I found this on vortex from vwmaniacs:

Thanks in advance....

Sorry for the blurry iphone pics but you will see what I did. I used a piece of trim I had lying in the garage...I do not know the origin of the trim... Used a zip-tie to hold it in place. The trim was taller, but I shaved to the amount needed where the Gears engaged effortlessly as well as where the car would start with the clutch in. I have had this setup for 5000kms with no issue. I love my SRE Clutch.

There are other ways of doing it, At the beginning I tried a door stop from home-depot, one of the half ball flexible ones, with adhesive... fixed to where the arm of the pedal hits the stopper...too ghetto.

The stopper on the firewall has a grommet, that can be
removed and I thought about putting a blocker in there, but I thought that would get destroyed over time... That's why I did this... easily removable and reversible.

Also, how much was shipping from Germany?

That's because it has nothing to do with the stopper from that link...
Just a piece of trim I found in the garage, but it works rather well. The part that hits the firewall was longer, and I used an exacto knife to trim to the desired length. Held in by racecar proven zip tie

Shipping is only 100 or so dollars
It's the conversion from euros that stings.
Then again, OEM+

I think I did the conversion recently. It was about $1800 + shipping. That sound about right? Ugh, I cannot come to terms w/ it. That's a K04 kit...
