E-mailed and Pmed. No response. As a business owner, I simply do not have the time to chase after people.
What's your secret hevster? I contacted Frans last DECEMBER and received an immediate reply about a T4 TDI swap kit but since then nothing...PMs in April and Aug of this year have not been answered.Just replied to the PM. Didn't receive any email
I always get quick replies out of Frans and can't remember the last time we bought something from him (although the manual conversions probably help there). Never hurts to bump an email if you don't get a reply after a few days. I know I'm guilty of reading emails on my phone or just on the pc, then they end up marked read or fall into the draft pile for a few daysWhat's your secret hevster?

to be honest, valeo is a low quality sachs. If you're making more power you should go with southbend.Does anyone have a US source or equivalent part number for the clutch on frans's b5.5 FHN manual trans conversion. I have a 2005 b55 passat wagon the valeo part# kit is 835005 or 835012 and without flywheel, the clutch kit is 826856 or 826877. I think the main difference is flywheel weight but not sure. I'd like to do a bit of an upgrade as the original clutch only lasted 25k miles tho possible oil or coolant dripping may have led to it's demise combined with a bit of a malone tune.
The valeo 835012 is a good clutch set, but only for the standard tune. For upgrades we recommend the sachs dmf set. For bigger turbo setups we recommend the sachs sre set.but what do I buy? Will all VW 228mm clutches fit?, are the pressure plates standard fitment (bolts/holes/pins etc.)
