    Yes be very careful, I had a friend who got a clutch there and was not what it should have been, they said it was the 'same quality as' they in the end did swap it out but only after a lot of calls etc.

    Oh sorry I didn't mean to say they were trying to fake AP Racing clutches, they simply sent another make. The part number will be on the plate / Cover.

    Not this company that I know of but I have also been told about people on ebay with pictures of AP Racing boxes and receiving Borg and Beck reconditioned plates and covers.

    Might just be worth asking the question "is this a genuine AP Racing kit, is the bearing from AP and what are the part numbers"

    Ive just bought an AP clutch for my escort and apart from thicker fingers on the cover it even has the same part number as my standard LUK clutch and the plate is the same but with bigger damper springs made me look twice lol

    Received the the clutch kit from www.techniclutch.com all in ap boxes part numbers seem to match, seems to be a genuine kit which is surprising if you google the company and read they have been substituting the covers and plates for cheaper brands etc.
    Some pictures of the clutch kit.
