    Friction discs are the same.

    Pressure plate however is NOT the same - AJL share the same pressure plate with the AFN (1,9TDI 110).

    Don't be tempted to run the wrong pressure plate, it'll slip, and the engine / tranny will be coming out again before not too long.

    Not sure what part number you've got there - is it a genuine VAG item?

    No, you can't tell by looking, spring rates are different.

    i think i need to stop looking on the net. i have found listings saying it is for the ajl engine and others saying everything but. im going back to get more stuff anyway so i will double check with them anyay but id did say in the book he had that it was for ajl. ill see if it lists the same number for aeb etc as well. so would i be rite in thinking a pressure plate for the ajl would be a bit of an upgrade for somebody with a fwd 1.8t a4?

    As long as the profiles are the same, and allow it to fit an AEB, yes.

    I've found stuff on the 'net that are blatantly wrong - one listed the S4 ECU as fitting S4 and 2,4 / 2,8 30V.

    So, I'd be careful. One of the very reasons why with such things that are a pig to fit, I only buy OEM.

    in the valeo book they have it listed it as fiting AJL engine and then the next one was for AEB etc but i never seen if it was the same kit or not so ill check. if its in the valeo book as for my car it should be anyway.wish i never looked on the net now. its a pitty there isnt a pressure plate for some other audi thats an upgrade for this set up.

    You might find a TDI pressure plate of some form will give higher clamping force and still work with your friction plate and flywheel, but it would be a bit of a guessing game, and seen as its a pig to fit i dunno if i'd really want to experiment too much...

    The idea clutch upgrade would be a 240mm item - 2,4/2,8 30V V6, or S4.

    Aragorn, pressure plate of AJL is the same as that of the AFN (TDI 110).

    Ye, i just mean perhaps the plate from a PD130 B6 or something might be a further upgrade, but ye, 240mm flywheel and an S4 clutch would probably be the way i'd go.
