Which part will go first?

Hey All,
With all these great parts coming out for the 335. Im starting to wonder what yall think will be some of the first things we will have to start replacing due to power? Im already thinking about replacing the clutch. Do yall think the tranny itself will holdup? What else?

Mat

I am going to guess the front brake pads - Although they would be covered under warranty.

It depends how you drive your car. If you have a manual and you like to drop the clutch at every other stop light then you are probably going to have a slipping clutch and/or a differential with a hole in it. With that said I really think that the transmission, differential, axles will handle the extra power from a piggyback and bolt ons. Only time will tell with the clutch, that is a tough call, but things look promising since there are a lot of procede/xede cars out there without slipping clutches.

I meant the steptronic.

I think brake torqueing your car is not smart. I really don't know how much abuse the Steptronic can take before giving out. With added HP & TQ, you can't be launching and expect it to hold up. Just my opinion, but I think you can drive and feed the power in gradually and you will be fine.

roughly 3k, includeds the flywheel and everything, clutch goes (flywheel is made of the same material as the rotors so it needs to be trashed to) its exspensive

Just do high RPM Neutral Drops into gear... that will be good on your tranny

What do you think about a lighter flywheel replacement? I did this for another car and was one of my best mods.

Does that mean you brake torque & launch a lot?

Do you have procede installed? How many miles do you have? If you abuse your car, please PM me when it breaks so I know how many miles it lasted.
