DMF/ SMF replacement, Uprated clutch?

Well my clutch is starting to fail.. yesterday i was cruising and saw it slipping ( revs rising speed constant).

So if I am about to do the clutch i was thinking i may as well ask if you guys know of any SMF replacements for the standard DMF (dual mass flywheel).

Also are there any uprated clutch components available that will fit the Bravo T-jet?..maybe some of the Abarth models..or even some of the diesels because they usually take more torque.

Re: DMF/ SMF replacement, Uprated clutch?

Is SMF healthy for M32?
DMF overtake lot of torque-shots on itself, but will SMF with spring clutch plate do the same?
I also thinking of replacing DMF with SMF

Re: DMF/ SMF replacement, Uprated clutch?

Update:
After a little digging i found a few SMF/clutch kits that might work on the bravo tjet ( they were advertised for the abarth 500.. they would have cost close to 1000 euros.


After a lot of thinking i decided to install original spec components: OEM clutch kit pressure plate (made by LUK), clutch disk (made by Valeo) and hydraulic throwout bearing (made by SNR). The DMF i used is made by LUK and is a direct replacement for the original.
The parts came to about 450 euros.
I did the work myself with the help of 2 friends... to take the gearbox out and to put it back on you really need help as it is quite heavy 54kg unequipped (whatever that means).
it did of course not go without a hitch ... after we installed the gearbox on to the engine.. and a lot of other mounts drive shafts and so on.. when bleeding the clutch the new OEM throwout bearing blew a seal .. so brake fluid was gushing out in the bellhousing. Took it apart again the next day and saw that the clutch plate was not touched/ ruined by the brake fluid (lucky me).
I finally used parts of the old and the new hydraulic bearings (old hydraulic part new bearing part)..combined the two and made one working throwout bearing.....

Long story short it's working great. If anybody wants to know the part numbers or anything else, just ask.

So 450 euros for press plate, clutch disk and bearing?

Re: DMF/ SMF replacement, Uprated clutch?

The price is for all the parts: clutch disk, pressure plate, DMF and throwout baring.
I had to reuse part of the throwout bearing ( not the bearing itself, but the hydraulic part)
