    If you mean which clutch......the Sachs has a much higher torque rating than the OEM Luk clutch.

    Both can be fitted using the OEM dual mass flywheel,although Sachs also sell their own DMF and SMF flywheels.
    The single mass one wouldn't be suitable for a diesel,and frankly isn't best suited to road use either.
