BMW E82 Performance Clutch Kits & Parts

BMW E82 Performance Clutch Kits & Parts 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!

Advanced Clutch Technology Xtreme Rigid 6-Pad Racing Clutch Kit With XACT Streetlite Flywheel - E82/88 135i, E9X 335i, E60 535i

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 an Xtreme pressure plate, an R6 racing clutch disc, and an XACT Streetlite Flywheel.

Their Xtreme pressure plate offers a 50-120% clamp load increase, moderate to heavy pedal feel, and is recommended for high performance street and racing applications. All diaphragms went through a four stage heating process for increased strength and unparalleled performance.

The R6 clutch disc is an unsprung, rigid 6-pad racing disc that is recommended for drag and road racing and is better at handling high heat than the 4-pad disc. Its material composition is high quality, ceramic friction materials and a chrome-moly hub that has been heat treated for high strength. It has an increased torque capacity, and is better for faster shifting with its low weight and inertia. Being a racing disc, it has good durability, but a shortened spline life due to its rigid design. It also has a fast, aggressive engagement in comparison to standard street-use clutch discs.

The XACT Streetlite Flywheel is their most popular flywheel as it is great for both street and drag racing. It allows your engine to rev quicker, giving you increased throttle response, and is considerably lighter than your stock flywheel thanks to its light single-mass design, all while still being very durable!

Clutch Kit Specs:

  • Torque Rating: 665 ft/lbs
  • 117% torque capacity increase over stock!
  • Type of Disc: Racing
  • 26-count spline
  • Spline Size: 1-3/8" inch

Next in this kit is the R6 racing clutch disc. This disc is an unsprung, rigid disc with 6 pads that is best suited for drag and road racing and handles heat better thanks to its increased surface contact area versus the 4 pad version of this disc, the R4. The R6 pads are composed of ceramic friction materials and the disc has a chome-moly hub that is heat treated for additional strength under high load engagements. Over stock, this disc is much better for faster shifting and significantly higher torque loads. Unlike the stock disc, this racing disk has a slightly shortened life span due to its rigid design and pad composition. This in turn is offset thanks to its fast, aggressive engagement for track use.

Clutch Kit Specs:

  • Torque Rating: 565 ft/lbs

Brass Clutch Pivot Pin (Replaces BMW #21511223328) 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.

E60 535i, E82 135i, E9X 335i SPEC Stage 2+ Performance Clutch Kit (for stock dual-mass flywheel) Tuning your N54/N55 with all of the bolt-on upgrades? Don't allow your clutch to let you down! The stock clutch is fine for a stock car or just a simple software upgrade. But anything more and it quickly becomes the weak link (especially with drag races or hard launches). The 135i/335i/535i/Z4 35i SPEC Stage 2+ clutch kit is perfect for owners who want a performance clutch that works great with simple bolt-on modifications and will have a minimum of downsides or trade-offs. SPEC has spent considerable time and effort on the 335i models to produce a performance clutch that holds up to track and drag strip demands but is also easy to live with for daily driving. This clutch kit is meant to be used only with the stock dual-mass flywheel and is the most user-friendly of the SPEC clutches we offer for the 135/335/535/Z4.

What was most important to them was offering a kit that has stock-like clutch pedal effort but will grab and hold when the car has been mildly tuned. Full bolt-on upgrades like software, intake, FMIC, E85 mix, or methanol demand a better clutch. The Stage 2+ has a peak torque rating of 545ft-lbs but note that the stock dual-mass flywheel will be a limiting factor to how much torque you can use. There have been cases of high mileage or abused flywheels coming apart with high torque tuned engines. We recommend using a new factory flywheel or jumping to the SPEC single-mass flywheel. The clutch in this Stage 2+ kit is self-adjusting, like the factory design, and the engagement point can be adjusted. The clutch disc is a rigid hub (not spring loaded) so it's best used with the stock dual mass flywheel.

This clutch is what we recommend if your tuning plans will only be bolt-on upgrades. If you plan to go beyond bolt-ons, such as upgrading turbos or single turbo, we strongly recommended using the Stage 3+ clutch. The Stage 2+ offers the best drivability for 90% of the tuned 335s out there but when going beyond bolt-on upgrades it would be best to go to a more advanced clutch stage.

SPEC Clutch is one of the premier clutch and flywheel suppliers to the tuner market. They are often found on the most highly tuned import and domestic vehicles. They are recent players in the German car community with a special focus on the newer turbo BMW models with high torque output. SPEC has been proven time after time to provide superior performance, drivability, and longevity to the most hardcore enthusiasts around the globe.

E9X 335 SPEC Clutch Stage 2+ Kit contents:
+ carbon/semi-metallic and Kevlar clutch disc
+ heavy-duty pressure plate
+ heavy duty throw-out bearing
+ pilot bearing
+ clutch fork
+ alignment tool

Additional items we recommend:
pressure plate mounting bolts
flywheel mounting bolts (if removing flywheel)
ball pin
spring clip
rear main seal (if car has more than 70,000 miles)
input shaft seal
output shaft seal

This disc is an unsprung, rigid disc with 6 pads that is best suited for drag and road racing and handles heat better thanks to its increased surface contact area versus the 4 pad version of this disc, the R4. The R6 pads are composed of ceramic friction materials and the disc has a chome-moly hub that is heat treated for additional strength under high load engagements. Over stock, this disc is much better for faster shifting and significantly higher torque loads. Unlike the stock disc, this racing disk has a slightly shortened life span due to its rigid design and pad composition. This in turn is offset thanks to its fast, aggressive engagement for track use.

Features:

Key Benefits:

  • With premium materials and our unique adjustable design, this part will completely transform your driving experience with improved pedal feel!
  • Adjustable to eliminate “dead travel” after point of disengagement, which improves clutch pedal feel and results in faster gear changes
  • Further defines the engagement point for easier take-offs and launches
  • A practical, well-engineered solution to eliminating unnecessary long pedal travel
  • Professionally selected high quality parts by our in-house Engineering Team

 

Design:

  • Using custom-spec’d hardware, our thread-in design is far superior to the competition. The advantage over a fir-tree style design (competition) is a much more rigid stop, that is going to stand up to repeated pedal mashing. This gives the user a more confident , OE-like feel.
  • No dense foam to compress, leaving a “sticky” or “squishy” feeling after clutch depressed stroke
  • Polyurethane bumper to absorb shock during aggressive shifting
  • Zinc-coated hardware for corrosion protection
  • Zinc-alloy rivet nut makes a solid connection for the stop

E60 535i, E82 135i, E9X 335i SPEC Stage 3+ Performance Clutch Kit (for SPEC single-mass flywheel) The SPEC Stage 3+ clutch has been engineered to stay in step with the above average upgrades done on the 135/335/535/Z4 35i. Everyone knows that adding large amounts of boost and torque will expose weaknesses in other areas - the clutch being near the top of the list. The factory clutch works just fine on a stock 335 or with a mild upgrade like software and intake. But when you get into serious torque levels the stock clutch simply can't handle it. SPEC has focused heavily on the 335 market with 5 stages of upgraded 335 clutches. Stage 2+ is our favorite for mildly-tuned 335s, offering near stock levels of refinement and ample torque capacity (rated for 545ft-lbs). But when going beyond the usual bolt-on upgrades you need to look at your weakest links. The Stage 3+ clutch is rated for 671 ft-lbs. This clutch kit is meant to be used only with a SPEC flywheel (not the stock flywheel).

The Stage 3+ is for cars making serious levels of boost and torque. If you have upgraded turbos or a single-turbo conversion, or have checked off the list of full bolt-ons, this will be a very capable clutch for you. This clutch is designed to work only with a SPEC single-mass flywheel and avoid the pitfalls of the stock OEM flywheel. The stock dual mass flywheel uses springs and rubber to isolate vibrations from the engine and transmission. However, on high mileage or abused flywheels the rubber can break down and the springs will become weak. A worn dual mass flywheel limits the amount of torque you can put out. It will affect clutch engagement, shifts, and power delivery. In some cases a total flywheel failure can rip apart the flywheel, clutch, and even transmission housing. With the SPEC single-mass flywheel the limitations of the stock flywheel are eliminated. The SPEC flywheel is a single mass design (no internal springs or rubber to fail) and is offered in a steel or aluminum material. The steel will better dampen vibration than the aluminum so it's the better choice for street use. The aluminum will have greater vibration and noise (gearbox rattle) that may not be acceptable for everyone. The clutch in this Stage 3+ kit is a sprung hub design so SPEC has done all they can to minimize the noise and vibration. It's also self-adjusting, like the factory design, and the engagement point can be adjusted. See comments below for characteristics of each.

The Stage 3+ can be configured a few different ways depending on how you intend to use the car -

The clutch will be stiffer than the factory design but it will grab harder and stay connected with far less chance of slippage. The engagement point is changed but most drivers adjust within the first 100 miles. The failure-prone dual-mass flywheel is eliminated and a steel single-mass is used instead. Expect more noise and vibration from the steel but better reliability and slightly better performance.

Expect a lot more noise and vibration with aluminum ("gearbox rattle") but better reliability and better performance. The engine will rev a lot faster too.

SPEC Clutch is one of the premier clutch and flywheel suppliers to the tuner market. They are often found on the most highly tuned import and domestic vehicles. They are recent players in the German car community with a special focus on the newer turbo BMW models with high torque output. SPEC has been proven time after time to provide superior performance, drivability, and longevity to the most hardcore enthusiasts around the globe.

JB Racing Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel & Clutch Kit - N52

A lightweight aluminum flywheel is a great way to increase throttle response and free up horsepower by reducing drivetrain loss. Factory flywheels are built to minimize engine and transmission vibrations, making them heavier and requiring more energy to make them spin. An aluminum flywheel can save lots of weight over the stock steel unit - sometimes over 50%. While the dampening effect of the stock flywheel is reduced, most enthusiasts would agree that the increase in performance is well worth it. In addition, the lighter flywheel allows the engine to spin more freely, improving throttle response.

This JB Racing lightweight aluminum flywheel kit and is designed to be used with the included factory clutch, making replacement and service easy and inexpensive, especially compared to specialized racing clutches. It also preserves the driveability of your car on the street, and enthusiasts tolerant of a mild to moderate NVH increase will be especially taken with this setup. In addition, the JB Racing flywheel can be easily rebuilt with a new clutch contact surface, allowing you to enjoy faster revs and superior response for many years to come.

Stock Flywheel Weight: 24-31 lbs.

JB Racing Lightweight Aluminum Flywheel: 12 lbs.

Turner Motorsport Performance Lightweight Flywheel - N54 - E9x 335, E6x 535, E8x 135

Engineered in-house, we designed this lightweight, single-mass flywheel to provide more than 10 pounds of weight savings over the factory flywheel. While some ultra-lightweight performance flywheels are manufactured from aluminum, our designers opted for a more driveable experience with steel. The mass provided by steel helps dampen vibrations and noise, delivering near-factory refinement with most of the benefits of a lightweight flywheel: quicker throttle response, improved durability (and longevity), and more effective transfer of power to the wheels. 

Modern flywheels are built with additional components that are designed to dampen and minimize vibrations from the engine and transmission. Weight has increased and reliability has decreased. With additional weight more energy is required for it to move. A lightweight flywheel does away with the dual mass design and its additional mass so more energy can be diverted to where it counts most - moving the car. The flywheel and clutch is one of the first areas that engine builders address when making the rotating assembly lighter for race engines. The dampening effect is just not needed on cars that are focused on performance. And with a single-mass flywheel the unreliable DMF design is eliminated.

When it comes to selecting a clutch to pair with a lightweight flywheel, consider the driving you’ll be doing. As a single mass flywheel eliminates the dual-mass dampening of the factory flywheel, to retain the lowest noise, lowest harshness driving experience possible, select a clutch with a dampened disc. For dedicated track cars, a solid clutch hub is appropriate.

E60 535i, E82 135i, E9X 335i SPEC Stage 2+ Performance Clutch Kit (for SPEC single-mass flywheel) Tuning your N54/N55 with all of the bolt-on upgrades? Don't allow your clutch or flywheel let you down! The stock clutch is fine for a stock car or just a simple software upgrade. But anything more and it quickly becomes the weak link (especially with drag races or hard launches). The 135i/335i/535i/Z4 35i SPEC Stage 2+ clutch kit is perfect for owners who want a performance clutch that works great with simple bolt-on modifications and will have a minimum of downsides or trade-offs. SPEC has spent considerable time and effort on the 335i models to produce a performance clutch and flywheel package that holds up to track and drag strip demands but is also easy to live with for daily driving. This clutch kit is meant to be used only with a SPEC flywheel.

What was most important to them was offering a kit that has stock-like clutch pedal effort but will grab and hold when the car has been mildly tuned. Full bolt-on upgrades like software, intake, FMIC, E85 mix, or methanol demand a better clutch. The Stage 2+ with the flywheel has a peak torque rating of 545ft-lbs. With the SPEC single-mass flywheel the limitations of the stock flywheel are eliminated. The clutch in this Stage 2+ kit is self-adjusting, like the factory design, and the engagement point can be adjusted. The clutch disc has a sprung hub so it can be used with the single-mass flywheels with near-stock levels of noise, vibration, and refinement. See comments below for characteristics of each.

The clutch will be stiffer than the factory design but it will grab harder and stay connected with far less chance of slippage. The engagement point is changed but most drivers adjust within the first 100 miles. The failure-prone dual-mass flywheel is eliminated and a steel single-mass is used instead. Expect more noise and vibration from the steel but better reliability and slightly better performance.

SPEC aluminum flywheel
more drag strip than streetUse this with the SPEC aluminum single-mass flywheel.
The clutch will be stiffer than the factory design but it will grab harder and stay connected with far less chance of slippage. The engagement point is changed but most drivers adjust within the first 100 miles. The failure-prone dual-mass flywheel is eliminated and a lightweight aluminum single-mass is used instead. Expect a lot more noise and vibration with aluminum ("gearbox rattle") but better reliability and better performance. The engine will rev a lot faster too.

This clutch is what we recommend if your tuning plans will only be bolt-on upgrades and you want to eliminate the dual-mass flywheel (as a potential failure point). If you plan to go beyond bolt-ons, such as upgrading turbos or single turbo, we strongly recommended using the Stage 3+ clutch. The Stage 2+ offers the best drivability for 90% of the tuned 335s out there but when going beyond bolt-on upgrades it would be best to go to a more advanced clutch stage.

SPEC Clutch is one of the premier clutch and flywheel suppliers to the tuner market. They are often found on the most highly tuned import and domestic vehicles.
