Would be interesting to see if somehow we could get the 1.8 clutch to work on a 2.0. You could do a SRE clutch with a new DMF for roughly $1,000.

Mine was rated for 470tq. My car made close to 600tq at the crank With shit load of antilag awd launches. Hot lapped it at drag stip for maybe 10 passes running 11.1-11.3s and clutch held. Organic disc starts feeling like butter when they heat up but still. Awd running NT05s it held. Gotta keep in mind lots of people install them wrong. You NEED to clean of flywheel from lub before install with a grease remove. “I used thinner” lots of failures are customer errors. Especially when from my experience SB underrates their stuff.

I hate dual mass flywheels with a passion. I also know several people with South Bend Clutches that have fun them for years and loved them? I'm not sure what the difference between the 1.8t/2.0t clutch and flywheel are but I'm going to assume the spline count is different on the input shaft. The crank pattern should be the same, but we'll find out here soon enough!
