Is there any thing I should worry about If I get this combo? Any drawbacks, like the clutch burning out quicker?

Dude, don't get demanding, you'll get an ear full and rightfully so. How is it that in 8 months and 98 posts a SEARCH function is still a mystery to you? :banghead:
At this point you might as well stomp your foot :cry: , maybe that will get you an answer.

first of all I did use the search button..... and you should talk..... 20 months 2,189 posts ........do the math!!!also I guess you have no knowladge of this so you just wanted to say something!......... but good use of smiley faces! :thumbup: Numbnuts,You are no help to me. foff
To everyone else....... the reason I need this info is because my clutch and FW are toast and my :b5: has been down for three days.....I always get advice from :b5:ers before I buy ANY part, I have never had any problems with anything I purchased for this car going this route....Any help would be great....as always!

Alright, calm down. Ucheckit, the reason that you can't find a definitive answer to your question is twofold. First, no one here has a crystal ball, so we can't assure you of success with this setup. Next, what SACHs clutch? The Sport Clutch or OE? What LWFW? Not that it matters necessarily, but are they sold as a set or individually? As a general rule, the clutch won't burn out sooner strictly because you're using a LWFW. You may experience a minor hit in terms of ease of operation, but you can probably compensate for it without any difficulty. You will experience a slight performance gain. So that's as much as we know. We don't know whether this setup will last as long as OE. Give it a try and let us know how it worked out for you.

the man has spoken...... anyways, i have a friend who did the sachs/lwfw on his 1.8t gti, he still has it in there after about 20k so i doubt that it would burn up any faster than oe, good luck and watch your mouth bro, stick to asking questions !
