Southbend DXD Racing Clutch - Stage 3 'Daily' - Mk6 Jetta / Mk7 Golf 1.8T TSI Gen-3 Clutch and Flywheel Kit
The South Bend Stage 3 Daily clutch kit is the best choice in reliably putting power down to the street in your VW Mk7, Mk7.5 Golf, Sportwagen or Mk6 Jetta 5 speed 1.8T TSI.
This clutch package is designed for high HP vehicles desiring a start performance similar to O.E. The pressure plate is Race Engineered (SS) and SFI approved with significant load increase over stage 1 or 2 pressure plates . Expect a pedal effort increase of 20%-25%. Discs are assembled with heat-treated wear resistant hubs; drive plates and springs for high load transfer and dependable operation. The sprung centers on the disc, in conjunction with the marcel fin between the linings, create a dual dampening effect that simulates O.E. start performance. A Performance Organic friction material with a high metal content increases torque and RPM capability and maintains low operating temperatures reducing wear and glazing. Recommended usages are daily, spirited street and occasional track.
Flywheels manufactured by DXD are made from low carbon, hot rolled steel that is highly resistant to warping and perfectly suited for the friction materials mated to them. Single mount CNC machining guarantees precise tolerances and perfect balance exceeding O.E. specifications. Extensive field-testing has been done to determine the proper weight for each specific vehicle and to ensure smooth operation, safety and durability under extreme operating conditions. SFI Approved!

Rear Main Seal
The rear main seal on the VW TSI engines is prone to leaking. In our extensive experience working on these engines, it is simply a matter of when, not if it will happen. For this reason, we recommend replacing the seal when the transmission is already out of the car to install your new clutch.
*Please Note, Single Mass Flywheel units can cause some slight noise at idle, this is normal and does not harm anything. SFI Approved
