Yes, RS4 clutch disc (which is the same part number for the S4).

We use an RS4 pressure plate.
We produce a lightweight flywheel, which is different from the RS4
unit. The RS4 unit is very similar to the S4's, which is heavy. The
lightweight unit provides quicker throttle response, especially when
heel and toeing. It is recommended to drivers looking to maximize
engine response, or if they are in need of a flywheel due to wear on
their original one.

Less power means less stress on the clutch, but what fun is less power?

The RS4 unit is more suited to dealing long term with the low end grunt
that most chips produce.

There is shared labor between doing a clutch and exhaust, so you may
want to consider doing both at the same time to save money on labor!
