The only mfg that uses a VR6 pressure plate for A 6 speed 02M application is Eurospec Sport. The kit uses a 228MM 11 pound custom cast steel flywheel and a modified (for extra clamping force) VR6 pressure plate . It uses a stock Sachs 228mm full face disc w/ 23 spline center (from Audi 80) as opposed to the 28 spline for the 5 speed cars. We have had Clutchnet make us other discs for this application that would be stronger than the OE disc supplied in the ESS kit. ARP bolts are supplied with the ESS kits.
If you don't mind a little noise at idle then one of the ESS kits will be better on your budget.
I'm confused, in your OP the ESS kits don't come with 11 pound flywheels.
Also I have a few other questions.
1) In the stage 1 kits, the Sachs is cheaper than the LUK. But in the stage 1+ kits, everything is the same except for the pressure plate, and the one including a Sachs cost more.
2) Will a higher clamping force pressure plate cause a slave cyl. to fail any faster?
Looks like I'm just trying to decide between the State 1+ and the ESS 240mm kit, based upon chatter. Also how do the discs in those two kits compare? Is the ESS disc closer to the OE one or the Clutchnet one?
