Hey all,

What solid flywheel can bolt onto a B235e crank and use a pressure plate for 300+ bhp?
Will need to use 240mm clutch plate.

Thanks all.

Sadly I can’t post only edit.
It’s not for a Saab as such, but a rwd application, so it will use a 240mm ford plate & gearbox.

Might not be welcomed to discuss splitting a 9-5 I guess ?

Moved to where this is more appropriate. I think a little more info is required........ what car is this for?
Please update with a bit more background and you will get more answers.
Please also update the thread title.

As an aside, I believe the b235 comes with a solid flywheel and the aero clutch is good for 300bhp.

We are not too precious about cars, we realise they get broken. Interested to know what it's going into :corn:

It will all depend how far the box shaft stops from the clutch plate. When fitting BMW boxes the shaft finishes around 25mm short so a spigot bearing spacer is needed along with the 240mm flywheel from a 9-5 as they are very thick and move the drive plate towards the box shaft.
Without having the measurements for the Ford box it's impossible to recommend a flywheel however any B204/B234/B205/B235 flywheel will physically bolt up and pretty much all of the standard clutches will just about cope with 300hp.
Can I ask why you are using a B235 rather than a 234? Are you planning on running the Saab management?

Thanks for reply.
Will be running RX8 gearbox, so getting it to mate up and input shaft into spigot bearing is fairly straightforward.
I will try to run T7 management, obviously needs a fair bit of software editing, but should be possible.
Would have gone b234, but not as readily available, plus T7 head is better and once I rebuild/rebore would be changing pistons anyway.

Thanks.

Ok - you may have an issue with the box shaft reaching the spigot bearing, especially if you are using an adapter plate.
As far as I understand it , T7 needs the clocks, DICE and TWICE units, keys, plus associated wiring in order to get it to run correctly although I've never looked into it in depth as the 204/234 engines are so much better.

Agree with the above, retro fitting T7 into another make of car will be all kinds of pain.
Easier to get an aftermarket ECU i would think.

A B2x4 engine with T5 however can be fitted into most things fairly easy.
