Not yet, I have one on the way because the stock clutch is done after my turbo upgrade. I have heard nothing but great things about them and SPEC seems to be the go-to for clutches on this platform for better performance with stock drivability.

I drove my buddy's M4 Comp with a SPEC clutch installed and I was sold! The clutch is just a TINY BIT heavier than stock, but hardly even noticeable.

I bought the twin disk with the flywheel, as they're not sold separately. SPEC gives you a choice of a billet aluminum flywheel or a billet steel flywheel, and the clutch is rated for 950 ft/lb of torque.

I'll PM you the link

I have the Spec clutch. I after speaking with Spec, I changed my order from the ST (street) spec to the P (pulling) spec. I didnít want chatter and wanted the clutch to be slippable for general daily driving. I believe this give you an organic disk and a Kevlar disk. This clutch grabs so well!!! Clutch pedal throw is about half of stock, maybe 15% stiffer clutch pedal. The engagement window is tiny because of the short throw, I now have to be focused much more when driving during starts. The clutchís main negative is that it is hard to get into gear, the best way I can describe it is that you start the shift and are held up for 1-1.5sec at the shift gate that enters you into the gear.

I have no idea what power you are chasing however there been a few owners running decent HP on the oem clutch for many miles. Obviously they treat the take offs with a bit of car and don't abuse the clutch.

All I'm saying why not stick with oem as it dual plate anyway from I know?

Spec is the most common clutch upgrade, feels solid. A bit stiffer than stock but nothing super noticeable for the average user

Most common, the car starts to rev and your speedometer isnít moving.
It can be very slight at first. I would see this on my 135 when I would shift into third, the tires would hook but the clutch would slip.
