2.0L XE Heavy Duty Clutch Cover – Non Pot Type

For use with flywheel FLY-W-VX2-0XE-001.
The heavy duty clutch covers are designed for applications where the engine/vehicle performance has been increased above standard.
All Helix racing clutches are manufactured from new components of the highest standards using the best materials available, they are designed to give a higher clamp load to cope with higher torque together with an increase engine rpm.
These units can usually be fitted as a direct replacement for the standard unit without modification to the flywheel and retained the standard clutch release mechanism.
Helix have advised us that ‘For a clutch to cope with extra torque you need a heavy duty cover as well as a sprung paddle plate. Using a sprung paddle plate with a standard cover only provides about 15% increase in capacity. Horsepower does not come into the equation – only torque determines the clutch.’
