I just looked @ the Viggen clutch on GS, and noticed it's not @ all the same pressure plate I put in the 9-3.

What's the "R" plate?
Is it an OE Sachs viggen plate? or is it actually up-rated?

I believe its the OEM plate. If I enter the P/N: 50 23 718 as shown on the Genuw*** Saab website in the Saab EPC it comes up as pressure plate, 1998-2003 9-3, B235R engine. it doesn't have any special notes otherwise.

This is the clutch in the "spec stage 2" kit that I'm asking about.
Not the viggen clutch kit.

The 9-3 Viggen (B235 R) engine used the uprated pressure plate. The pressure plate only is a different number than the clutch kit including the plate and disk. ;)
