Not sure if you are still looking for a review. I just finished the installation yesterday. I had planned on going with ACT but Jeff from Top Gear Solutions suggested I get the Spec Stage 2+ with my DMF instead. So far so good, only 20 miles on it however. I'm trying to find reasons to drive the car

I'll be able to post a review once it's fully broke in.

I use the car as my DD and could not see this clutch being an issue since it feels a lot like the stock clutch. The engagement point seems smaller but does not move from stock: I have a clutch stop and can keep it without any issue. I'm happy with it!

I want to thank Jeff from TGS for pointing me in this direction!

The Spec Stage 2+ is a great clutch and has held up to the single turbo abuse without any issues on all the cars we've installed in on.

They are completely manageable on a daily driven car. You will notice some chatter with the SMFW, but it's not bad in my opinion.

I would recommend using a single mass flywheel with the single turbo kit as there have been documented cases where the dual mass flywheel will cause mis-firing issues on the higher horsepower applications.

I've got the Ally FW and Stage 2+ clutch with hybrid st2/3 fricton plate waiting to go on.

But I'm getting nervous, I'm hearing bad things about excessive noise with the Ally FW.... maybe I should exchange for the Steel SMFW instead??
