    unless you have seriously upped the BHP to more than 240 BHP you don't need a uprated clutch just get a OEM Sachs one if you have upped the BHP then get a M3 Sachs clutch

    The car is 252bhp at the moment and thats with faulty vanos and slipping clutch, will be more soon. So a sachs e36 m3 clutch kit and flywheel will go straight on with no other mods?

    so that clutch kit will be a straight fit with no issue of the release fork? what about a flywheel upgrade? is a solid flywheel okay with this oem m3 clutch setup? the clutch friction disc hasnt got a 'sprung centre'...?

    Thanks or your input mate

    I think you have to get a different clutch kit for solid fly wheel

    I would think so as both variants of the E34 M5 had over 300 BHP

    Thanks mate,

    Ive now sourced a UUC lightweight flywheel, going to order a e34 m5 3.6 clutch kit and just use that set up. I will report back once its fitted with how it feels and cost
