Clutch Set up

Here is My clutch set up for my Audi 4.2L 924. got a hold of a lite aluminum flywheel Looks just like the 034Motorsports series, LuK pressure plate and Disc scored for $160 lol. **Disc is near perfect and will be spared for our 2.7T Passat. The disc pictured is a Mazda Rx8 stage 4 series good for 450ftlbs, which is plenty. it is a 240mm disc, with a 25mm/23t, also for you 951 guys, this disc is a perfect replacement for a worn out disc in your car. average cost is $70 for the Mazda Discs.

Update

I am breaking away from all stock gauges for my Audi 4.2L Swap in my 924. Main reason is I would like to try and make this car Legal in CA to actually drive around. So I am going to use an A8 cluster and, match everything up with the harness. also will have the OBD2 port set up, so I can read any codes and trouble shoot as much as possible. At first I wanted to stay stock gauges, but in the end, this will be very accurate.

Update

Modification of Harness from the 2001 A8 donor car underway, trimming it down to what is needed for my 924 Audi 4.2 Swap. leaves me with a lot of extra wiring for splicing if needed. Also the fuse block will be a nice update from the old ceramic fuses not to mention the wiring from the early 80s.

You'll probably shed about 50 lbs. of weight out of that harness it looks like.

Last Update until December.

Last update on my 4.2 swap 924 until December.
Had a good plan forward for my radiator, Brake and clutch. Plus possible Fusepanel layout.
