      I still need to buy a clutch and I was looking to find a clutch that can handle at least 400 HP so I can later on upgrade to supercharger and not to deal with the clutch. Does the E34 M5 clutch can handle about 400 HP and if so, is it a direct replacement? Am I gonna need a E34 M5 pressure plate too?
      I have 370HP on my car E30M3 S/C S50 and it's working fine. Mine is a UUC Lightened Flywheel combo with E34M5 Clutch Kit

        And as I mentioned before, the 4:10 rear end is yours, no problem.
        See you soon.
        Thanks Raymond I look foward to seeing the car when I get back from vacation.

        • Wow, I love that HP number. I made my mind on the E34 M5 clutch but do I need to buy the 91-93 US 3.6L M5 clutch or 3.8L euro M5 clutch?

          Also, Chitty, when are you getting back form vacation?

                • I just initiated the operation S50 transplant! :woohoo:
                  Ryan just picked my cabrio out and took it to his place. He said it will take couple of weeks since he can work on it only in the weekends but that's ok since I will be very busy until September anyway.

                        • Yes, I like Berkeley in general and only Sundays I get to park in the front of the cafe (white curb) without getting a ticket. Parking is hard to find in that area of Berkeley.
