Helix Twin Mass Flywheel/Clutch Conversions

It is possible to increase by engine tuning the torque output on these vehicles beyond the capabilities of the original clutch and flywheel unit. As original equipment the twin mass flywheel has a spring system to take up the drive progressively for a set rating. The friction plates on these engines have no damping springs. The original clutch pressure plate is also incapable of being modified to give a greater performance. For higher torque engines the twin mass flywheel and clutch components will be problematical.

For tuned engines Helix have produced a rigid Steel flywheel an Heavy Duty uprated clutch pressure plate and a friction plate with damping springs. These are capable of handling extra torque.

There is however a drawback. Without the twin mass flywheel engine harmonics especially on the diesel engine versions can give rise to noises from the transmission. Usually these are most noticeable at idle. These noises are not produced by the clutch but by the idling gears in the transmission.

As the Helix products were produced for outright performance this noise has to be acceptable.

If you do not like it the answer will be to detune the engine to the manufacturer’s original specification and use an original clutch and flywheel assembly.
