Well the big reason is that I've got an extremely limited ammount of money 
to do this. The baby and his asociated stuff has eaten up all my money, and 
I'm putting my car back together with my state tax return, which is just a 
few hundred bucks. In Florida we had a machinist on staff at the shop, and 
he still is doing my flywheel for free, so I just need to purchase the 
cheapest good stong clutch I can get, because I need the car to drive. My 
better half is sick of having to drop me off at work when she or kiddo has a 
doc appointment, mostly because I work 97 miles away.

I dunno about using a Kennedy unit. We used to use Kennedy clutches in our 
Porsche race cars, but we found that the pressure plates explode on a 
regular basis after something near 15-20 hours of (race) run time. We went 
back to *stock* Porsche/Sachs pressure plates with 6 puck discs which is 
reliable and works fine under about 400hp. Of course I know it's an entirely 
different pressure plate for the Audi, but still after seeing better then a 
dozen of them go I'm hesitant to use anything they make.
