I was considering an ebay/gripforce 6-puck and LWFW

then i came across this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/97-to-05-AUDI-A4-A4-QUATTRO-Valeo-Clutch-Kit-Flywheel_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1638Q2em118Q2e l1247QQcategoryZ33730QQihZ009QQitemZ190154343726QQ rdZ1QQsspagenameZWD1V

its a clutch kit made by Valeo with a LWFW conversion. same price as the gripforce kit, but from a proven brand.

I emailed him to make sure it was for 1.8t, how much the fw weighed, and if it held any more power than stock just a few minutes ago.

opinions?

Make sure to ask how much ft/lbs the pressure plate is rated at, stock is 1500 ft/lbs. When using a lwfw a pressure plate with a much higher clamping pressure is needed since the flywheel can spin up much quicker then a heavier flywheel.

I asked an eBay seller selling that kit (for basically the same price) what the flywheel weight was and they said they weighed it and it was 22.5 lbs vs. the stock 24.5 lbs.
They didn't give me ratings on the clutch but indicated it was intended for stock power and asked what I was running so they could recommend a different one.
