SVT Flywheel Question OEM or Aftermarket?

I blew my SVT engine some time a go and I got a new one with a clutch and a flywheel. I just took a closer look on it today and i noticed that it is a LUK flywheel. Is this an original factory flywheel or is it most likley an aftermarket one? Also if it is aftermarket how does it compare to the factory one?

Thank you in advance,

Ceaser

Ford redesigned the clutch/flywheel because the original one was defective which led to premature failure.The luk one is the same "redesigned and improved" stock clutch that Ford sells.

^^the motor he bought came with the clutch/flywheel.

the LUK has its advantages as being a "stock" clutch but has the holding power of most any brand's "stage 2" clutch. it is known as the TSB clutch.

I have it on my SVTf and love the way it feels. Makes me want to upgrade my ZX3's.
