    Vehicle : Facelift Insignia/Corsa D

    Trim : LE/VXR

    Engine : 2.0 cdti/1.6 Turbo

    Year : 13/07

    Red face Well, guess i'll be needing a new clutch

    Was through in Dundee tonight getting some bits and bobs from Morrisons and on the way home the car started over revving under heavy acceleration. Yep 9k with a tuning box has paid it's toll on the clutch.

    So what can I get to replace it? It's early days yet so i've got plenty of time (I hope). Wouldn't mind getting an uprated one for it. I assume the clutch is the same as the 3.2gsi as they share the same box

    Any help appreciated guys

    TBH the car has done 93k so it's not all the tuning boxes fault. Just think it may have finished it off. Thats why i'll go for an uprated one this time

    I tested the GSi and didn't like it mate

    I said that in my other thread, i missed the kick from the turbo lol

    So I then thought "my car is going fine so i'll hang on to it for a bit"

    Sorry to hear this. Dundee is not a place you want to admit to being....

    Don't know anything about the clutch but just wanting to plant a seed... would an F40 fit your engine? The gearbox will be off anyway...

    I had a website the other night that did performance clutches and now I can't find it, they did normal, fast road and track clutches. Anyone else seen it?
