    Any idea what would happen if you pair a sprung center clutch disk with a dual mass flywheel?

        Well, I’ve got a 215mm recess in the Volvo dual mass flywheel. I have three options, A) buy a larger E30 disk made for dual mass and have it trimmed (losing some friction material $120), B) buy an E21 sprung center 215mm disk and drop it in (sub $100) or C) pay to have an unsprung BMW center put in a Volvo disk by one of the various performance clutch places (+/- $200 for stock sized organic friction disk). I know $80-$100 doesn’t seem like a ton, but I’m on an uber tight budget. I do pretty much everything out of scraps or used parts.

          E21 sounds like the easiest/cheapest option.
          maybe someone on a E21 forum has a used one or ebay

            So, used our shipping pallet jack/scale to weigh the empty engine/trans combo. I’m going to re-weigh them tomorrow on a more accurate scale (even though the shipping/receiving guys swear the scale on the pallet jack is accurate)

I had resigned myself to shelling out a bunch of time and money to build a full custom header until I saw someone else build a J pipe (up pipe) to relocate their turbo and I was like, “duhhhhh”, so now I’m taking that route. Sometimes I worry that my posts are too granular, but I figure people can just skip over if they want.
              I think if you just post cause it's something you like to do, people will naturally be interested in it if it's interesting. In your case, it certainly is interesting to me!

                      Pay shipping and it's yours. I'll take a good look at it tonight, but I'm pretty sure it had quite a bit of life left in it.

                          I've also got an m42 dual mass non-sprung one if that works better with the dual mass flywheel which is also 215mm. Hell, you can have both and see which one works best for your application.

                                Dude.

                                How I'm just now seeing this build is beyond me. I've seen pictures of this car on the internet plenty of times.

                                Your persistent drive and wide range of capabilities is inspiring the say the least. I'd consider myself a fabricator type as well but I've admittedly gotten a bit lazy over the past few years so this thread is getting all the creative juices flowing again, so thank you for that. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through this thread over the past few hours and think you should absolutely continue posting content in your detailed style, it helps others learn and get motivated to try new things!

                                Keep it up!
