Here's the url:

To be fair, that also includes an uprated clutch kit. I was lucky and found a supplier of re manufactured clutch kits for £130
and a new/old stock DMF for £150.
The cheapest DMF/Clutch kit from Luk was around £500.

I hadn't realised that was included a clutch, so not as bad as I first thought!
I've actually gotten in touch with TTV Racing, they do a lightweight flywheel (about 6kg) that will match up with the original clutch for £350 delivered, which sounds bang on to be fair! Probably going to go with them.

Quick update: the TTV flywheel appears to be spot on, weighed it before it went in and it's literally half the weight of the old one (spot on 6kg). And sooooo shiny! On the down side it did almost cost me more than my throttle body set up and tubular manifold combined... really hope it's worth it!

Thread resurection

Any update on the solid flywheel/clutch issue?

Also has any-one ditched the large intake plenum and fab'ed one.

I'm fitting an AJ30 into my TVR S

Heyup, in the end I used the stock clutch with the TTV flywheel; no issues as yet but not properly used in anger either!

As for the inlet, I've fabbed up ITB inlets using GSXR bodies, which seems to work ok. Had two ally plates water cut for the flange and then welded or alu brazed some shaped tubing onto them. Doing a single TB with plenum nestled between the banks should work fine, and avoid the height issues I've been plagued with!

Iíve run a solid flywheel for 10years now and know of hundreds of others who do the same without any known issues ever over many hundreds of thousands of miles... the crank can take 700bhp and 8500rpm reliably, in NA form you will only break it if itís out of balance.

I fabricated my own ITBs and carbon plenum although height is an issue as they are tall (I have loads of room above the engine).... if you want Rocketeer will sell you a nice carbon plenum that will fit under a low hood, not cheap but proven.

Any pics of what you've done badger? I'm currently going through the options of what to do with mine

Here's the best I've got at the moment - as you can see I had to make some rather large bonnet bulges to accept the airboxes (and yes I'll cut out the sides to allow cool air to flow in!).

The second picture is mid-tweak, as I wanted to brace the bodies, find a more progressive throttle cam and generally tidy up some stuff I wasn't happy with, so it isn't the full system.

Is there a drop off in power if the ST220 plenum is used on the Jag 3.0 motor using a 65mm TB?

will you have enough length on the inlet runners?

Do you have any photos of the build up of this set up or drawing/sketch?

No real pictures at the moment - I've been through several iterations of it tbh. Hopefully next weekend I'll be rebuilding it, so will take some pictures then.

Regarding runner length, that really depends on what you're after. I've gone for a shorter runner length knowing that I'll sacrifice some torque, but also that I really don't need it as I'm pretty sure I'll be able to light up the rear tyres on demand!

Not sure - there's only one way of telling!

Yes. I'm changing the diff ratio to suit the direct top
