Clutches are only interchangeable between engines if the flywheels are swapped as well.

If you want to run a 1.8 clutch on a 1.6 engine, you'll need a 1.8 flywheel.

It would seem to me that a 1.8 flywheel on a 1.6 would feel even more sluggish due to the extra weight, unless it's a turbo car that needs the extra clutch.
