Clutches and Flywheels

Are you looking to make more power from your VW but afraid of melting your factory clutch with the increase in power? The unfortunate consequence of making more power used to be an expensive clutch upgrade that would break the bank and sacrifice the ease of driveability. Well, at ECS we felt the same pain and decided to carry on our legacy of designing and creating top quality, easy to drive, affordable performance clutch and flywheel kits, now available for your Volkswagen MK4 1.8T platform 6 speed 02M manual transmission vehicles. 

After nearly half a decade of in-house engineering, testing and retesting of multiple iterations of prototypes, across a wide range of modified vehicles, we are excited to give you our best clutch kit yet! Our kit is engineered to reliably hold 400 ft/lbs of crank torque and feature specifically selected components for performance and daily driving styles, while retaining easy commuting characteristics and enthusiast-minded control and feedback! Each kit includes a more reliable, lighter weight flywheel than factory for quicker revs while retaining a good balance between a daily and sporty driving experience. Lastly, all necessary hardware is included for basic installation, such as flywheel bolts, pressure plate bolts and throwout bearing bolts. We even included a new LUK throwout bearing and a VW-Specific clutch alignment tool for proper crank bore engagement and clutch disc centering. 




    • 240mm Full face, high performance organic friction material with integrated copper for enhanced heat dissipation and a long component life

    • OE-like marcel friction backing plate design for smooth engagement with dual stage damping springs to reduce gear noise, driveline chatter, and for smooth engagement


    • Increased clamp force over OEM, rated at 1,685lbs of pressure


    • LUK OE spec for ease of install and reliable operation


    • VW 1.8T Specific Design, made for perfect fitment into crank bore

    • Perfect clutch disc spline and size, easy removal with pull tab

    • PLEASE NOTE: Not all aftermarket clutch kits include this proper alignment tool! We ensured you receive the proper tool for trouble-free installation!


    • 18.85 lb. single mass lightweight flywheel (24% reduction from stock) 

    • Specifically selected weight for ideal combination between daily and sporty driving style; faster revving for quicker gear changes and less rev-hang

    • Precision CNC machined from Forged 4140-HT Chromoly Steel

      • Homogeneous material properties promotes even wear and has superior resistance to warpage and chatter

      • Heat Treated to 28-32 HRC for improved wear resistance

    • High precision balanced for exceptionally smooth operation at high rpm

    • Designed and tested by a 3rd party lab to meet SFI 1.1 specification for added quality assurance. 

      • SFI 1.1 specifies the minimum requirements for material strength and quality, as well as a 3rd party lab spin test to 150% of redline for 1 hour to ensure integrity of material and design.

    • Black Oxide coated for corrosion resistance



  • OEM Triple Square Flywheel Bolts - QTY 6

  • OEM-Grade Hex Head Pressure Plate Bolts - QTY 6

  • OEM Throwout Bearing Bolts - QTY 3

  • VW-Specific Plastic Clutch Alignment Tool



  • With our lighter weight flywheel and performance clutch kit you can expect quicker revs, faster acceleration, improved rev matching, less rev-hang and faster shifts. 

  • Lighter weight flywheel than the OEM dual mass flywheel (6.05lbs savings):

    • OEM Dual Mass Flywheel - 24.90lbs

    • ECS Single Mass Flywheel - 18.85lbs



  • From inception to completion, over half a decade in development and multiple designs tested and re-tested, we are proud to finally offer the very best clutch kit in this market, at the very best price! We partnered with a global clutch manufacturer for a performance and daily-minded clutch disc and pressure plate that met our standards and reliably holds 400 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.

Awesome GTI Delivery Information


For European Customers prices now displayed in cart once you enter your address will have 20% UK VAT Tax removed, however you will have to pay some form of Duties / VAT prior to delivery of your goods. If you are unsure of charges we recommend you should contact your local authorities ahead of placing your order.

Do we ship abroad ?

Yes we do, to almost anywhere in the world though remember the postage is often high when shipping anything bulky. Most bulky items we export will go by UPS so you can track the package online and could reach America within 48 hours providing its in stock !

However there are a few countries we do not ship to, some of these include: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Russia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Syria, Ukraine, Lebanon.

Why is postage on bulky items to some countries expensive compared to some other companies ?

For both yours and our safety we use well known couriers such as DPD Local and UPS for shipping, then we know exactly where it is in the world at any time and we know its going to arrive safely. Shipping small items can be cheap, but items such as bodykits are expensive to ship - we have a very small margin on the postage fees merely to cover packaging. We can now ship using standard post on some items, however using all methods you may incur import charges when you receive the goods for which we cant be responsible for.
