DescriptionOur light-weight & balanced billet steel flywheel for the VAG O2M gearbox conversion, often performed with high powered Renault F-block engines (Clio 172, 182, Clio 16v, Williams, etc.)
Designed to work with VW / Audi 02M gearbox swaps along with our own adapter plate, the flywheel bolts directly to any Renault F-block crank (F4R, F7P, F7R) and some other variants like Volvo B18FT. The flywheel accepts a standard VW 240mm single plate clutch (non dual-mass type) and can accept an uprated type for the 6 speed 02M gearbox found in Golf GTI’s, Seat Cupra R’s, Audi TT, Audi S3 and many others. The clutch fitment specifically accepts the 1.8T BAM found in the Audi TT, S3, etc.
The flywheel comes with a standard ‘ring gear’ to work with a factory standard VW / Audi starter motor and the correct offset to work with a standard VW / Audi clutch release cylinder also.
Just behind the ring gear you will see a trigger pattern designed to replicate the Clio 172 / 182’s “60-2” flywheel pattern for the ECU’s crank position sensor (TDC sensor). As shown in one of the pictures below, it allows you to install a universal crank angle sensor in the location shown to exactly replicate the original timing of the Clio 172 / 182. With this you can run the original Clio ECU if you wish, or any after-market engine management system which has the ability to trigger from this very common timing pattern.
Shown here are some pictures of a Clio 172 RS conversion using this flywheel and our matching adapter plate:

Modification required to Clio 172 / 182 RS sub frame to provide sufficient clearance for the 02M gearbox:

VW / Audi gear “remote” module installed inside Clio, to fit beneath original interior trim:
Finally, for “Cup” models or other models which had a speed sensor mounted on the original gearbox you can carefully weld 8 tags on to the inside of the drive flange as shown here, which when coupled with a “hall effect” or digital “gear tooth” sensor like the one we stock (sensors category) can be used to replicate the original 8-pulse-per-revolution signal:
