Flywheel options

soo im looking for flywheel clutch options for the m30b35 with 260 trans.

I know that e36's can use a e34 m5 clutch. can i use a flywheel made for a m50?

I believe the m50 flywheel bolt pattern is close to that of the m30, so in theory it'd work, but don't quote me on that. You'd be much better off buying an e28 m5 flywheel or jb's

How about a 533i flywheel (about 15 lbs. I think) or an e28 535i flywheel (about 22 lbs.) but can be easily machined down to the weight you want for about $100. Stick with the stock e28 535i clutch/pp unless you have big power from a turbo.

In all the m30 swap threads ive read (which have been many) I never heard about anyone using the m50 fly. Im not saying it wont work either, Ive just never heard of it happening. Im running a e28 535i clutch kit with the 533i fly. The e28/e34 M5 fly works too. Note only the s38b36 would work because the s38b38 is a dual mass fly.

I've got a 15lb e28 m30 flywheel, if interested. Also have good used pressure plate and clutch from purchase of a gearbox.

533 and M5 FW are the exact same parts. The 533 15lb FW is only on the early build date vehicles.

Best setup is a 533/M5 FW with M5 clutch.

I've got a B35 -> M5 FW -> M5 clutch -> 5sp ------> 3.25 LSD in my e28. It's primo. Low revvs highway, but still runs like a scalded cat. 2nd gear tops out at 70mph exactly. I'm moving up to a 3.73 LDS soon.
