Heavy Duty Clutch Kits

Get All The Extra Torque To The Wheels.


Benefits of a Heavy Duty Clutch Kit by Ultimate Diesel Tuning.

A clutch is a consumable item that isn’t going to last forever. Much like brake pads do, the plates on your factory OEM clutch will also wear down over time & this can happen prematurely as well. There are several factors that will wear a clutch out prematurely – hard launches, riding the clutch & resting your foot on the clutch pedal are some.

However, with some turbo diesel vehicles, an OEM clutch also will not be able to cope with the demands of increased torque. So if you own a 70 Series LandCruiser, HiLux or RG Colorado & you are looking at enhancing the performance of your engine, then a heavy-duty clutch upgrade is a must. The newfound torque that we will achieve for you will more than likely cause your factory clutch to start “slipping” – simply because it will not be able to handle the extra torque that is now being produced. Sometimes, a slipping clutch even happens on our dyno during the tuning procedure, which brings us to a complete halt! Due to this, we highly recommend that we upgrade your clutch kit during your booking with us, prior to the tuning procedure being carried out.

When it comes to clutch selection, take into consideration what your vehicle is used for – ie. from slow city/traffic driving to all-out 4×4ing. You’ll then need to choose an aftermarket unit with a great amount of increased clamping pressure to cope with your additional torque & you also want one that is tough & designed to last. With several options for kits available (clamping pressure, single-mass flywheel conversion etc.), speak to us about which option will suit you.

One other thing to note is that the heavy pedal feel of a “heavy-duty” clutch is somewhat a thing of the past now. With modern technology & the latest designs of heavy-duty clutches (especially with the reputable brands of clutches that we use here at UDT!), the pedal will feel like stock or better, yet with a LOT more clamping strength to handle your extra torque!

The Ultimate Diesel Tuning DIFFERENCE.

Here at UDT, not only do we have several years of combined diesel custom dyno tuning & mechanical experience, but we have also invested hundreds of thousands of dollars into required master tuning specialised equipment & staff training to achieve the best result possible for our customers.

At all of our performance centres, we have new in-house Dyno Dynamics dynamometers (that cater for both 4WD & 2WD vehicles) & all tunes performed are custom to each vehicle (not a generic flashtune), carried out to not only ensure a great increase in power, torque & response; but also to ensure that the tune is safe & reliable as well. This means that your vehicle will be 100% custom dyno tuned PROPERLY & individually by our experienced tuners/engineers using our master equipment & our in-house dynos – we will also perform the custom dyno tune to YOUR requirements & goals, also with your engine condition/age in mind.

A custom dyno tune by UDT is NOT a generic tune from another vehicle that’s loaded into your ECU, with a provided “before” & “after” dyno sheet (which is unfortunately very common in this industry to do). 

We will ensure that you receive the best possible performance result, safely & reliably. We will totally transform your vehicle’s performance to the extent that if its ECU is put back to standard, you will notice the difference immediately – it will feel terrible to drive to you, it will be sluggish & you will feel that it’s very low on power! It is our experience & our attention to detail & care that we believe sets us apart from other workshops & tuners.
