Give your B8 3.0T a flywheel and clutch kit combination capable of handling the added power in your vehicle. This kit includes the new ECS Tuning Single Mass Lightweight Flywheel with the Southbend Stage 2 Drag clutch kit, rated at holding up to 500ft/lbs of torque.
Introducing the ECS Tuning Single Mass Lightweight Flywheel, engineered in the U.S. by our leading R&D team for increased power transfer, faster revs, and improved acceleration. A decreased mass means a lower moment of inertia and, weighing in at only 18.3lbs, the ECS Single Mass Flywheel spins up faster and easier than the heavy 29.8lb unit installed from the factory. That's 11.5lbs of weight savings!
Light doesn't mean wimpy. Our precision CNC machined single mass flywheel is amazingly strong, durable, and resilient to failure when compared to the OEM multi piece moveable unit. Designed to accommodate all conditions: from Sunday drives through the country, to the abuse of the track.

*Why is SFI testing and certification important?
The SFI Foundation, Inc. (SFI) is a non-profit organization established to issue and administer standards for the quality assurance of specialty performance and racing equipment. SFI certification indicates a flywheel has been certified using industry-standard SFI Spec 1.1 standards by an independent testing body to ensure quality of both design and materials for flywheels utilized in competitive motorsports. This testing requires that the flywheel must hold at 10,500RPM over an extended period of time for validation of durability, design, and construction.
Having successfully passed SFI certification, this flywheel has an individual SFI serial number found in a laser etching, and on an affixed sticker. This certification means our ECS-engineered flywheel is safe and reliable during the rigors of competitive racing; it's also safe and reliable for years and years of street use.
**On our development vehicle equipped with a poly ECS Transmission Mount insert, slight audible chatter was noticed. Accompanying modifications can also increase or decrease the amount of "NVH" or "chatter" in the drivetrain. Please contact our sales team with any questions.**
