02A/02J 4-Cylinder 11.9lb steel flywheel for fast revs, improved throttle response, superior durability, and decent street manners. Too heavy = lazy revving engine. Too light = tedious in traffic plus annoying vibrations. The stock unit is porky at 22lbs. Ours is trim and tidy at just under 12. Tap that throttle and the engine will respond "NOW".
Unlike many competitor's units, our lightweight flywheels are not "reconditioned' stock cast flywheels. Beautifully crafted from steel blanks for the utmost in strength and weight savings, they are supplied with new dowel pins, pressure plate bolts and flywheel bolts, too.
Keep in mind that the stock clutch in a 1.8T is 220mm diameter and uses a dual-mass flywheel system. This 228mm flywheel requires that you upgrade the clutch to a stronger VR6 type.
