I did that on mine (now Abacus') wagon - smoothed out the idle vibrations some, as the mount system in these cars is primitive.

Injectors, a tune, and a whole lot of weight couldn't make the LUK 17-050 slip. I was quite happy with that clutch.

There is a little trimming needed for the dust shield around the rear main to prevent the flywheel from locking up - ask me how I know.

Ask Abacus - he has owns and has driven examples with and without DMF - he would be a good resource.

It's an inexpensive clutch and claimed to have a light pedal feel. The driver of this B4 needed that so we opted to give it a try. Don't regret it one iota. This B4 has 520's onlY because the cost was the same as stock to get everything fitting and purchased, but it is the driven hard and and should last a long while. Here is a link to idparts' listing:

For that price, I don't know that I would have been able to pass that up. That's cheap.
