Anyone running JB4 with a manual...looking to see how the clutch is holding up with this....i know the mk7 wasnt great with adding decent power so im wondering how everyone is holding up with the mk8 and the clutch
I don't think the JB4 gives you enough to worry about the clutch. The new flash tunes that are starting to surface will likely have a lower torque tune option for those of us on a stock clutch. Even with the full torque tune, it will depend on your driving style and habits. Some guys with stage 1 or 2 on a mk7.5 had no issues with their clutch, others roasted them in a few weeks.
I've had zero clutch issues. The JB4 definitely gives the car a decent power upgrade. I absolutely notice when I have unplugged it. I am looking forward to a new flash tune, but in the meantime, the JB4 is a worthwhile investment.
