    Default REVIEW:Uprated Performance Clutch for 1.9 CDTi Sachs part no: 999789 000904

    This review for the following item found here http://en.sachsperformance.com/sachs-race-performance-clutch/opel/signum-0503/19-cdti-110kw-z19dth-0404/index.html
    ZAF Sachs Performance Clutch kit part no: 999789 000904
    Also fitted at the same time was a Sachs Dual Mass Flywheel part no:2294 000 296 (standard item) and clutch release bearing.
    The clutch Kit was ordered direct from Germany and was delivered by UPS 3 days after I placed the order. Really good service or what!
    It has been fitted to a Vectra C SRi 1.9 CDTi 150PS/110Kw 2005 with BSR remap.
    I believe there is also a version for the 120PS/88Kw
    The fitting was carried out by A1 Clutches based in Tipton, West Midlands.
    details here: http://www.a1-clutches.co.uk/
    The service I had from A1 Clutches was second to none so a big thank you to the fitter and to Rick who organised the job. Well worht the drive from Northampton.They had not done a performance Clutch on a Vectra C CDTi before but was willing to try. They are Sachs and Luk authorised fitters. I dropped the car off at 8am and 5 hours later was off back down the motorway on my way home. (I did take the train from Tipton to New Street, Birmingham and done of bit of shopping while I waited J).
    Rick had one concern with the new clutch in that it was not self adjusting like the original. A quick phone call to Germany confirmed we had the right clutch kit and that all performance clutches are not self adjusting.
    The run I had home was how should I put it, brilliant!
    The clutch is a bit harder than the original but it feels more precise and gives good feedback, I was able to shift gear with more aggression than before. In fact I have not come across a Clutch that feels so good when given stick.
    I was able to lay power down with no issues at all. I knew my original Clutch had been slipping for quite a while since I had the BSR remap 2-3 years ago and had gradually got worse in the last few months. I do not think the standard clutch can carry off power the same way as the new clutch regardless if it is worn or not.
    All in all I have to give it 5/5 so far, time will tell if the setup is reliable. I do 30k a year so I think I will find out sooner rather than later if it’s going to go wrong!

    Hopefully the next review will be for my uprated Turbo which if all goes to plan will be fitted in about 3 weeks time.

    Glad you like the drive, sounds like it could be fun off the lights.

    How much is a standard clutch?

    A1 Clutches charge £650 for Clutch/DMF/release bearing and fitting £650

    The standard Clutch costs something like £220

    500NM is less than 370lbft, that's not enough
    and 550 quid is quite alot, getting one from the breakers uprated would probably be cheaper...

    Depends on your driving. There are things you can do to avoid damaging the DMF, they tend to fail from people mistreating them without even realizing they are.

    Slow acceleration and keeping the car moving in gear to avoid clutch engauge and disengauge, depressing the clutch to start and stop the engine. All good for prelonging the life.
