most flywheels and clutches are OEM replacements...meaning they can bolt on to the OEM clutch or flywheel. I don't know that VHR would be any different.
I have the VHR clutch and flywheel kit that Seoulful Racing offered a few years ago and need to replace the clutch. I know there are some VHR clutches that are available for the car w/o the flywheel.
My question: will the clutch kits from VHR (one without a flywheel) work with my solid VHR flywheel?
For example, will this clutch work with the flywheel I have?
That VHR was my first aftermarket clutch. I bought it on a Real Engineering GB. I was not impressed with it in the least bit and it because it slipped, chattered, and went out in less than a year.
Seriously, your best bet is to throw the whole thing out and start over with a clutch and flywheel from a reputable company.
mine is FAR too grabby to be advertised for stock vehicles and catches REALLY late, but its lasted me like 2 years/ 20K miles now and no problems.
but the OP may have to start over again not because the clutch is garbage, but because you can't source replacement parts.
I made a post in the SFR "support our sponsors" section directing Jay to this forum, as he's probably the only source for definitive answers to both the OP and my questions, not simply conjecture and personal opinions of the kit itself.
i dont intend to "write off" your comments, i just didn't want this thread to end up a "bash the VHR kit" thread, where no answers ever come in the wake of discussion of the clutch kit's merits and shortcomings.
that is all.
plus, your original comment belied the wealth of first-hand knowledge on the OP's question....
now, with my personal experience, the chatter and such i chalked up as to the design, i had no idea that it was a 4-puck when i bought it. SFR and others advertised it for "stock to 350" horsepower levels, and i guess i fell for the marketing. but with that kind of clutch design and material, its not suprising there's some chatter.
the late catching, still dont know. but im not taking it apart to find out.
there is another option for the OP, which is to source and buy another valeo clutch and pressure plate. or, as you said, source another entire clutch/flywheel kit.
