My dreaded shuddering E6 clutch has finally started to slip so time to get a new one. In the process I'm going to change the flywheel because I'm almost certain it's shagged and causing the shuddering and terrible noises that I have been experiencing. I want to change it to a lightened one but I'm having trouble locating one. Which manufacturers make an E6 lightened flywheel and for how much approximately?

I notice a 6 paddle clutch on the PE website at a reasonable price....anyone tried it and able to give me a report?

Any other recommendations for clutches able to handle towards 400bhp? (fast road use..not track)

Aussie,
Jun make a lightened flywheel (4.1kg IIRC) and I believe that Justin (Yellow5) at Torque IC sells them.
BHP doesn't matter to a clutch, it's torque that counts. The clutch will have a maximum torque rating and it is this that you should match to your application.

Is changing your own clutch a big job on an Evo(4)?
.
i don't see many posts showing 'do it yourself' sort of thing...
.
is it 'cus most don't like to get their pretty hands dirty;).. or is it a '[email protected]@rd' of a job?

Colie,

Changing flywheel/clutch is not that hard, i've done it with 2 friends, we are not EVO specialist and we've done it on a sunday, without being in a hurry, the only thing you have to know (and we didn't know it at the time) there is a screw inside the gearbox to be removed before the gearbox can released from the clutch, you need a specific screw driver for that...

We didn't have the specific screw driver so we've done an alternative solution through a small hole in the gearbox we have removed 1 by 1 all the screws from the flywheel and then we have released the whole gearbox|PLS|clutch|PLS|flywheel from the engine.

After that, sooooooo easy to put the new HKS flywheel|PLS|twin plate clutch and the gearbox back, that's all folks!!!

Please not that the HKS flywheel/twin plate clutch kit replaces this internal screw by an external screw, so next time i will want to replace clutch or flywheel, it will be a lot easier!!

Colie,
Altho Belg6 went DIY (LOL at your technique for removing the box with the clutch attached :) ) , without a car lift and some specialised equipment it wud b an arse of a job , I'm not saying it's impossible but u wud not have a fun time in the process. The gearbox and even the transfer case r heavy , 2 people r needed WITH a car lift , but without u wud need 3-4.

Evoboy,

You are right, i forgot to mention, a friend of mine rent us for free his renault garage , so we had a car lift and all the tools we needed, i can't imagine doing that at home!

Having seen how small the standard flywheel is when at a rally prep place and being told that even the standard one tends to warp leading to very rapid clutch wear I'm not sure that i'd bother with a lightened flywheel. Of course the Jun ones could be better material/construction/manufacture and could be less prone to warping.

No , sorry I'm so disallusioned with your deceptive post that u can only make ammends by installing a Jun stroker kit over a weekend , at the side of the road , without removing the engine from the car using only basic tools :) :) I wud of course require video evidence :):)

Evoboy,

Don't talk about stroker kits please, you kill me!!!! i dream of 2.2 JUN kit or even HKS cams but for that it really needs an EVO specialist and there is nobody around here (i live on the border of france/belgium) and i don't want to be 300 miles away from the guy (somewhere in UK) who can troubleshoot my engine in case of probs!

Beleive or not, but i'm the only EVO owner in my area, through the net , i know 3 or 4 evo owners but they are in the very south of France but you have to know EVO is not imported in France and it's very hard to get it registred in France (4 months to wait, several technical inspections and tons of paper to fill)
