Default Ebay Stage 3 clutches?

Are these worth a crap?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/F1-RA...spagenameZWDVW

My stock clutch is slipping at about 4psi, so I'm looking to get a new clutch and flywheel. I found a few threads that mentioned the F1, XTD and Exedy (which I think the ebay ones are all the same) and it seems like they work pretty well.

I have a "Value Line" Mazda clutch (the $100 clutch) and it's holding just fine with the boost gauge reading 7 psi @ 4K rpm and the Tony DP with full 2.5" cat and back.

Of course I get slipping if I pound the life out of it, so I just got a 1.8 flywheel for $25 shipped on flEaBay and will be upgrading to a better clutch.

With the 1.8 flywheel it's possible to put a 1.8 clutch in the 1.6?

Yep. Seems to be more of a selection too.

yes, or with a 1.6l flywheel you could put a 1.6l clutch on a 1.8l
