BMW Performance Clutch Kits & Parts for BMW 3 Series E46 (1999-2005)

Clear BMW chassis
These heavy-duty clutch kits use aluminum lightweight flywheels with sport clutch components to give your clutch the grip and clamping force it needs to cope with high torque upgrades. Our kits were developed through racing programs by companies affiliated with our own race team - JB Racing, Sachs Sport, OS Giken, and UUC Motorwerks. JB Racing is the leader in aluminum lightweight flywheel upgrades. They are direct replacements for the stock dual-mass flywheels with steel contact surfaces and computer balanced to 14,000 RPM. JB has partnered with Sachs to spec sport/HD clutch discs and pressure plates that work seamlessly with their aluminum flywheels. The result is a clutch/flywheel upgrade package that functions a lot like the original clutch combo with near-stock levels of effort and engangement but with a much higher torque capacity. Don't let the clutch be your weak link in a highly tuned car!

This lightweight aluminum flywheel w/ Heavy Duty "sprung-hub" clutch package is the best-engineered solution for the E46 M3. Instead of picking a clutch from another car that may or may not work at all, the engineers at JB Racing have taken all of the guess work out of this upgrade and incorporated a Sachs sport sprung-hub clutch with the correct pressure plate and combined it with their most-popular aluminum lightweight flywheel. The Sachs HD clutch disc has a sprung hub to minimize noise and vibration and organic linings to give the feel and engagement of a stock M3. Mixing and matching of the incorrect clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel components can lead to inconsistent engagement and feel -- why make your clutch feel worse?

In addition, the Sachs HD pressure plate will clamp with greater force -- allowing approximately 350 ft-lbs of torque, which makes it an obvious upgrade from the stock clutch kit. And with the aluminum flywheel weight savings is substantial over the stock dual-mass flywheel - which allows your motor to spool up faster and transmit more HP to the ground.

Because Sachs is an OE supplier to most German cars, replacement parts are just a phone call away. This kit uses the stock throw-out bearing (included in the price).

    This brass clutch pivot pin is an upgrade over the stock plastic pivot pin. The brass pin will last a lot longer than the plastic piece and may save you time and hassle later on. The original plastic pivot pin is known to fall out, snap, or just wear out over time. At the least you get a very annoying squeak every time you depress the clutch. In a worse case scenario, the clutch fork won't be able to push on the throw-out bearing and your clutch will be useless. The only time to replace the clutch pivot pin is when the transmission is removed, so this brass upgrade can be installed during clutch replacements or a rear main seal service.

    Advanced Clutch Technology (ACT) designs, engineers and develops products by leveraging decades of track and performance street experience. Advanced CAD, FEA simulation, and CAM tools help ensure highly optimized performance, reliability, and repeatability. These key advantages are produced by combining the best engineering and design methodologies with the latest in materials and manufacturing techniques.

    ACT clutch kits stand unequaled in terms of consistent pedal feel, high torque capacity, long wear life and durability. In-house manufacturing is critical in tuning components specifically to each individual application while maintaining the predictable ACT pedal feel across the entire catalog.

    This clutch kit features a Heavy Duty pressure plate and a Performance Street Rigid clutch disc.

    The heavy duty pressure plate included offers a 20-50% clamp load increase, stock-moderate pedal feel, and heat treated diaphragms for increased strength and performance.

    Next in this kit is the Performance Street Rigid clutch disc. This disc is an unsprung, rigid disk that is suited for aggressive street and moderate racing applications. The disc pad features high quality organic friction material with a high copper content for improved heat transfer and a steel backed lining for increased strength in burst load circumstances. This organic clutch disc has a significantly higher torque capacity than a stock disc but due to its rigid nature, may suffer from slightly increased spline wear over time.

    Clutch Kit Specs:

    • Torque Rating: 395 ft/lbs
    • 43% torque capacity increase over stock!
    • Type of Disc: Street
    • 10-count spline
    • Spline Size: 1-3/8" inch
    • Disc Weight: 2.3 lbs
    • Pressure Plate Weight: 10.2 lbs
    • 1 year Warranty from retail purchase date!

    The ultimate in a racing flywheel and clutch! This was developed for use in our E36 and E46 World Challenge Touring Cars. The combined weight of the clutch and flywheel is only 11lbs!!!

    This multi-disc (2 or 3 disc setups) offer a minimal flywheel mass (enough to include a factory ring gear for the starter) and a small 5.5" clutch assembly rated to 500ft-lbs. By saving as much weight as possible less energy is used in simply spinning the flywheel/clutch assembly and that means a lot more power and torque is available at the drive wheels. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines and this is among the most advanced and lightest racing clutch kits available for your BMW race car.

    The JB Ultra-Light Performance racing clutch is available in 2-disc or 3-disc setups. A 3-disc setup is less susceptible to heat and will have a higher torque capacity. On our M54-powered 325i Touring Cars (approximately 300hp) we used the 5.5"/140mm 2-disc configuration. The 5.5" clutch was a perfect blend of performance and durability. It wasn't too small to suffer from high temperatures and wasn't too large that it couldn't be slipped (slipping prevents damage to other components). This is a turn-key racing clutch and flywheel kit that you don't have to engineer or spec yourself. This is the same clutch setup we used when winning the 2003 and 2004 Touring Car Championships - the quality and performance is unquestionable. That series also employed standing starts at each race and this clutch setup performed flawlessly with nearly a full season of racing on them before needing a change.

    JB Ultra-Light flywheels include:
  • precision CNC machined aluminum flywheel
  • zero-balanced
  • replaceable hardened steel clutch friction surface
  • Helicoil threaded inserts
  • high-strength grade 10.9 hardware
  • multi-disc Sachs or Powertrain Technology racing clutch with racing pressure plate
  • JB Racing throw-out bearing with custom bobbin
    This is a true racing clutch and will not function as a street-able clutch at all. It behaves as an on/off switch with no slippage allowed. Extreme care must be used when driving on to trailers and around the paddock. But when driven correctly the life span of this clutch is amazing - we could get a full season of racing a 300hp M54 from this clutch setup including standing starts at every race! Replacement clutch components and flywheel rebuilding are available.

    A properly adjusted clutch stop is required for use with this clutch kit.

    Stock Flywheel + Clutch Weight = 45+lbs
    JB Ultra-Light Flywheel & Clutch Weight = 11lbs
