Resurrecting an old post due to a question I haven't been able to resolve in my own auto-to-manual swap:
Does anyone know if I can mix a 1998-2000 M56 manual transmission with an older 850 flywheel? The issue is the clutch and throw-out bearing. The 850-style used a bell housing with external slave cylinder, release fork, and matching throw-out bearing. The later version had an internal slave and presumably a throw-out bearing to match the pressure plate designed for the later model dual-mass flywheel. Would it also match the single-mass 850 flywheel and pressure plate? Thank you for any help!

Have you scooped out some of the M56 swaps in the P80 forum? Fair amount of activity there
