    Default Torque Rating for Clutch 2014 Jetta GLI Autobahn

    Hi folks,
    I have been trying to discover how much torque the stock clutch is capable of handling in my 2014 GLI 6m. I'm looking at a Stage 1 tune and have seen torque figures from 250+ to over 300lbs.
    I don't drag race, do burn-outs or power shift (no clutch).

    I also see ads for a Neuspeed plug in tuner for $340. Anyone with experience here? Does it bypass the 200km speed limiter in American spec cars.

    Would I be better off going to API?

    Many thanks,

    Will

    off the bat the stage 1 high output tune from APR will cause the stock clutch to slip, the popular tune for minimal upgrades is a Stage 1 low output APR tune on the mk6 Jetta and mk7 GTI however if you had a DSG you would be able to do the high output with no issues

    Thanks for the comeback; by my calculations that would be 91 octane: 253 hp and 261 lbs of torque

    Didn't the GLI's also get the clutch from the R32?

    in 2014 there was no R32, there was a Golf R that has a completely different drivetrain

    to put it another way, how much torque can my stock clutch take before it starts slipping? The torque in the present state of tune (stock) is 207 lbs; How much more can it handle?

    Was there not an upgrade in the clutch in 2013.5?

    you can get an upgraded clutch for it like a stage 2, I'm not sure exactly what the exact numbers are

    If you are going to change your clutch, try to buy a performance clutch that will let you use your dual mass flywheel. Because if you buy a clutch with a single mass fly wheel, you will hear some weird noise coming out from your transmission " that will be normal because of the change from dual to single"

    If the dual mass fly wheel is good, that one can hold a good 350 pound of torque

    No weird noises, just some chatter, part of one of the sacrifices
