I couldn't get any feedback on those and gave up not wanting to chance an unfamiliar brand.

I bought a stock Lt1-t56 Exedy clutch kit instead. Installation was trouble free and it drives pretty smooth. So far so good.

just a heads up to you guys im going with the f1 clutch for my t56 swap only because of price and my buddy has one in his 350 hp dsm and it seems to hold great, the only problem he has was on his 6 puck sprung disk one of the springs actually fell out somehow so he just bought an unsprung disk and hasnt had any problems after that in 5000 miles. i bought the "stage 4" which there all the same this one was just the unsprung disk. i'll keep you posted how they work and feel ect..
