An important factor to question is whether or not the LuK branded clutch is made to the same quality standards and specifications as the Acura branded one. Here's my two-cents on this. When you buy Brembo-branded brake rotors/pads from Amazon or TireRack to replace the front Brembo system for example, it is a different product compared to the Brembo rotors/pads you would buy from an Acura dealership, hence the price difference.

If this apply's to the Luk vs. Acura-LuK clutch/flywheel, this is something I am not sure of. Just a thought out there.
Different story entirely; if you check, the Brembo part numbers are different as they are made from different manufacturers, the Honda/Acura clutch bears the exact same numbers and markings as the LuK clutch; they are exactly the same part.
