Clutch Help

Postby jp 84 » Sat Oct 20, 2012 6:33 am

I'm working on 86 325 and I'm wondering what style clutch this is? I have never seen one like this and I'm wondering if this will hold up to a turbo set up

That's the flywheel, not the clutch correct? I'm guessing that's a dual mass one, mines a single mass so I have never dealt with/seen a dula mass in person.

Yes it is the Flywheel not the clutch. Is there an advantage to the dual mass one than the single And will It hold up to a turbo setup

From what I have seen, most people tend to prefer the single mass. I haven't done much research on the subject at all though, Yoshi and Tony should be able to chime in on this. No idea about how it would hold up to a turbo setup.

That is an eta dual mass. It makes shifting with harsher clutches easier. single mass are lighter and therefore help the engine rev up (and down) faster.

It will hold up fine to boosted applications, but it holds revs a lot longer than a single mass, and you won't get that crisp low end throttle response you will with a single mass.
