Which clutch on 1.6

I did a search and got confused on the interchangability of flywheels. I am putting a 16 valve with a stock zuk 5 speed in my zuk. I am wanting a high perf. clutch, which one? I heard that the Petroworks is as strong as a Centerforce, any truth? I am not concerned with pedal pressure but I am concerned about it getting hot and slipping in the mud. Any one know a part # for my application?

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

So which flywheel do you have? I have heard that the centerforce clutches engage to snappy? Hard to slip them, more off either off or on. But Glenn Wakefield says if it's adjusted properly then you can slip them. I have heard good things about the clutch petroworks sells as well. I think the best are OEM ones though.

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

Many of the folks that purchase engine swap kits from us also pick up the Cforce clutches. They slip just enough onthe trail to help climb obstacles. A great clutch for on and offroad that can take the extra power fo the 1.6.

Make sure to obey their break-in guidelines.

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

I am not sure I understand. What you want is a 1.3L clutch and flywheel, what brand is your preference. I run a Borg-Warner one and it's slips a bit more than I'd like but 31's on stock gears doesn't help it much either.

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

I have the flywheel from the Zuk, so I just order a clutch for a Zuk? As always the board to the rescue, Thanks guys!

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

Petro's in-house clutch works excellent . It grabs really well, and very predictably . Remember though , no clutch in the world will make up for bad gearing/driving , so keep that in mind . If you don't have good gear ratios for climbing so you don't have to slip the clutch constantly , better stick with a cheap stock replacement . All of the high performance aftermarket clutches are designed to be engaged and left alone, not constantly ridden and slipped . They will handle a lot of exta hp better , but will not take constant abuse .

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

I had a petrwoworks clutch behind my 1.6L 8V and it didin't even last 1 year, needless to say what I think of their clutch. I've now been running the NAPA oem replacement that came with a pilot and throw-out bearing for around $110 and it has worked great for the last year and a half. I think the NAPA even had a 1 year warranty. Just my experience....

Re: Which clutch on 1.6

If you destoyed a Petro d/f clutch in one year, something was wrong . Either bad adjustment or gearing , or just plain too much feathering . I can launch my front end off the ground with mine , this thing is designed to last a long time .
