Drivetrain Upgrades for the Achtuning (Mk7) GTI

Posted on December 1, 2015 – 11:53 am

Since replacing the stock IS20 turbo on the Achtuning VW (Mk7) GTI with the IS38 turbo from a Golf R we needed to eliminate weak points within the drivetrain to better put down the extra power.  An upgraded “Stage 2 Daily” clutch and flywheel from Southbend would allow us to climb through the gears without missing a beat…

… While a WaveTrac limited slip differential keeps both feet firmly planted to the ground and evenly distributing power, eliminating torque steer.

As far as we know this is the first manual transmission equipped VW (Mk7) GTI to receive the WaveTrac upgrade and we can’t wait to put the GTI through its paces on the track to test the new upgrades!
