Why? a high performance 1.6 clutch/flywheel is lighter if you aren't throwing down a shitload of power.

Clutch is dependant on the Flywheel only..

If you are using a 1.6 flywheel you want a 1.6 clutch.
If you are using a 1.8 flywheel you want a 1.8 clutch.

I see no reason to switch to a 1.8 Clutch and Flywheel.

Does anyone know if the 1.6 and 1.8 use the same throw out bearing ?

1.8 clutch and flywheel are heavier. Why add weight if you don't have to?

1.6 fly/clutch will work on a 1.8 car know 2 people running them local. so just keep your 1.6 set up sense a 1.8 is more lbs
