ECS Stage 3 Clutch Kits :: VW 6-Speed Transverse Applications
Stage 3 Performance Clutch Kit With Lightweight Forged Steel Flywheel (18.85lbs) for VW MK4 1.8T, MK5 / MK6 2.0T FSI & TSI, MK7 2.0T Gen3 with 6 Speed Manual Transmission
All too often most stock frame turbo upgrades produce power levels that would have required a heavy duty clutch kit that broke the bank (and your left leg), while our Stage 2 clutch kit was just on the cusp of maximum torque capacity most of these turbos are capable of producing. Our ECS Tuning In-House Engineered Stage 3 Clutch Kit bridges the gap in the market between ease of driving, price and torque holding capacity.

This clutch kit continues our legacy of designing and creating top quality, affordable clutch and flywheel kits. Now available for your VW or Audi 4 cylinder gasoline 6 speed manual platform (or similar) with power levels up to 450 ft/lbs. of crank torque.

Our Stage 3 Clutch Kit withstood the abuse that our ECS Tuning "Racewagen", an HPA OEM+ IS38 equipped, threw at it for over an entire race season, and it's still holding strong!

  • From inception to completion, over a lengthy development process and multiple designs tested and re-tested, we are proud to finally offer what we believe is the very best clutch kit in this market, at the very best price! We partnered with a global clutch manufacturer for a performance clutch disc and pressure plate that met our standards and reliably holds 450 ft/lbs of torque. We designed and engineered our single mass lightweight flywheel and sent it out to a third-party balancing company for SFI 1.1 design testing. Although each flywheel is not numerically certified for SFI, the design meets all requirements for SFI 1.1 Certification.
  • Our Clutch and Flywheel Kits were tested and quality inspected by our Research and Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading edge product development technology including FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and quality inspection, SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling, rapid prototyping utilizing our in-house 3D printer, and rigorous long term product testing.
