Please note this kit is for the N18 engine only!
Cooper S Solid Flywheel Conversion Clutch Kit is a direct replacement
for the OEM dual mass flywheel and clutch kit. Our clutch and solid
single mass flywheel replaces the entire OEM Dual-Mass Flywheel and
clutch set. All of our flywheels are interchangeable with the OEM
clutch sets and all other OEM components. The steel surface can be
refinished on the steel flywheel and the friction area can be replaced
on the aluminum flywheel.
We offer 2 flywheel options to suite your needs, budget and driving style. Please see the drop down menu for the following options:
22 lb Steel Flywheel
14 lb Aluminum Street Flywheel (REQUIRES a 10 day lead time!)
Why upgrade/convert to a single mass clutch?
Dual Mass Flywheels (DMF)are designed to transmit less engine
vibration to the drive-line so they do reduce some of the jerking
engagements. But they have to be tuned to the power and torque output of
the motor so they usually work reasonably well until they are abused,
improperly engaged, or engine power is increased. However this is not
the rule and sometimes they do fail prematurely, they are also a
consumable and can not be re-used.
DMFs are also a two piece flywheel so the friction thickness is
substantially reduced which can cause the friction area to super heat
and glaze due to inadequate heat absorption. Also since the friction
area is designed to absorb the engagement they are made of two separate
pieces with a long spring. This internal spring has been known to break
and/or the two halves of the flywheel apart. This can leave you
stranded and it is an all to common occurrence. The DMF clutch system
is designed to last the 100k miles however they do not and even under
normal driving fail around 60k and sometimes they fail in a way that
leaves the car instantly in-operable. Leaving you stranded and unable
to limp to the repair shop like you can with a strong traditional
clutch even after it has failed.
Unlike the OEM Dual Mass Flywheel the Aasco flywheel can withstand any
driving condition without the worry of a catastrophic failure. This
flywheel has a performance proven traditional single mass friction
surface that is 4 times the thickness of a dual mass flywheel. This is
good for a number of reasons, there is no way for the flywheel to
separate, due to the thicker friction surface area the flywheel will
absorb and distribute excess heat better, the flywheel can be
resurfaced, and it is lighter. All of these translate to a longer life
and better performance as well as you only need to buy the flywheel
once. The Aasco flywheel will save you money since you only have to buy
one, last longer, reduce the chance of glazing the clutch and wont

Option 3: Standard: includes all of the above plus Clutch Fork (23117568467)
We recommend installing a new master clutch cylinder when installing a
new flywheel The master clutch cylinder has a check valve that can
become blocked and will keep the system pressurized and partially or
fully engaged. If it is blocked it will impede performance and can and
WILL shorten the life of the clutch due to slippage and/or full
engagement of the throw-out bearing. If the check valve is blocked the
clutch could slip right after installation and the peddle/pressure plate
fingers may bind when the clutch peddle is depressed. If the master
clutch cylinder check valve is blocked you will be lucky if the clutch
lasts 15 to 20k miles.
Option 4: Recommended-Includes: all of the above PLUS Master Clutch Cylinder (21526774078)
Please note this kit is for the N18 engine only! Be aware that the JCW models of the R55 and R56 have the N14 engine into the 2011 production year.
