Opinions of SJ's own S4s clutch


Recommended Posts

Has anyone bought one of SJ's S4s clutches, their own version and not the original oe. The price of the whole kit is the price of the original lotus pressure plate.

Are there any other alternatives worth considering?

Thanks

P.U.K Esprit do them but I can't vouch for them.

 

- As above, but with even higher torque specification, 35% !!
- Feel wise, and as a comparison, it still feels lighter than a stock S4s clutch for example.

For Esprit S4s only€ 1150

We've had a discussion on here some time ago where Marcus of PUK has no evidence to support this '35%' claim other than the seat of his pants. He's not tested the clutch by any other means, tread carefully.

Got mine from pnm no issues

Hi Pete

Thanks for your reply. Btw your interior is looking amazing:)

My concern is that the s4 and s4s flywheels and clutches are vastly different in cost.

What I really want is for someone with an S4s to let me know too.

Keep them coming guys

Thanks Bibs. I'll bear that in mind.

I was really hoping that there may be something recent and hence the post.

Cheers

Drop 'CHANGES' a PM on here, he's got a solution from Helix which works well in his 412bhp SE!

Ive just bought a clutch kit from Paul Matty's #185 + VAT which is what everyone else seems to be charging, kit is made by Valeo.  This is the only one Matty's now list.  I did have a chat with Geoff at Esprit Engineering who was selling an uprated one with stronger springs for #200 + VAT, and he said it doesnt really make much difference though and he recommended his #185 + VAT unit.  It seems the only people selling the Lotus clutch is Lotus themselves. 

Fitting it at the weekend so I will let you know.
