This is what happens when you drive ~150 miles on a clutch with only 2 straps. Hoping this is my problem. Friday took it for a blast think i over reved it and clutched her a bang and gained a vibration. Vibration was mainly noticeable at low engine RPMs on idle it was near normal , on choke / slight throttle she'd vibrate like f***..... When in high revs ( no rev counter) she ran normal no vibration or im guessing so high frequency i couldn't feel it. 

 

Do you guys agree it seems like this was causing my vibration...

 

If i said the "fly"wheel nearly shooting through the wing didnt catch my by surprise id be lying..... I even knew it was gonna happen . Had a 24" bar on it. 

 

 

Ps my flywheel nearly went through the wing it exploded with so much force hahaha.

A standard turbo clutch should be more than enough for a 998. :shades:  over 120bhp is where clutch selection seems to get 'interesting'. :/ I would choose GCK151MS. The only difference is a genuine AP clutch plate or a cheaper version, from what I can see.

The turbo kit should have a slightly stronger diaphragm. I don't think either is a bad choice to be honest. I would definitely buy a new flywheel and get the lot balanced. I think MED quoted me around £40.
