That sure does sound like a fantastic TT swap/build. Interesting info about the KNS code 02Q. They may not have the uber tall 6th gear, but that might be another plus in a sports car.

Thought I'd share a bit of info that I've found having owned 2 MK7 Golfs (GTI before and now a R)...

Sachs offers a 4 puck racing clutch that can hold a absurd amount of torque (568 ft-lbs). And here's the cool part: You can still use the OEM style dual mass flywheel. Friend of mine has this setup in his hybrid turbo GTI and it's holding the power just fine. Link the this clutch is below. I don't know if it's compatible with the TDI or not.

Update to my last post... the clutch that I listed doesn't look like it would fit.

Same clutch but for the TDI should fit:

You'd also need the corresponding pressure plate:

so it looks like the friction disk is the same between the kits, but from what I could find the pressure plate is different.

My TT is lifted and has 215/65/16 Geolanders on it so the shorter 6th will be perfect.

The Sachs SRE from Darkside is what I have. They offer a sintered disc (I think it's 4 puck) that holds insane torque as well, but I wonder how harsh it is in daily driving. That's why I went organic.

I've used a 4 Puck, not in a tdi, and it wasn't too unpleasant.

It's no city setup, even for those that are quite handy with a clutch..in my opinion.


But I'm a guy that really doesn't like high rpm when taking off. Combining that with low rpm engagement with a Puck setup id imagine it's more difficult.

My old 09 I had a terrible terrible tendency to gag the rpms so low the ecm would kill fuel once below 500rpm.

I had to break that habit at least for that car. 750-1k rpm I was easily scuffing rubber from stand stills.

Just checked and it looks to be a similar if not the same disk.

Knowing that Darkside offers the kits and likely know for sure what works and doesn't. I would just go with them for a clutch.

Also, the 4 puck initially (before break in) is a bit harsh. But after break in it's pretty decent and certainly livable on a daily basis.
