Default 850 manual swap

Just bought a ‘95 850 t-5r, and decided it needed to be manual. Bought an m56 swap off an indie/used Volvo parts shop, they said it would fit and was from an n/a s70. It has a dual mass flywheel. Were the flywheel and clutch diameters the same between s70 n/a, glt, and t5 models? Which clutch should I get that will fit? Planning on keeping the car stock as far as power goes. They did give me the clutch from the n/a s70, it has plenty of life left on it. Would the n/a clutch and pressure plate work or would it slip? Thanks in advance.

That’s a lot of questions

Yes if I remember right

One that fcp sells

Used clutch - toss it in the trash.

Depends how you drive - likely

All of this has been covered extensively on sites like volvospeed years ago

I don't have the info in front of me, but you're going to run into a speed sensor difference using that newer (98+) trans in the -96 car.

One pulls the speedo info from the ABS system and the other has it on the trans itself.

(I want to say the later cars use the signal from the ABS system)

My swap was a '96 trans into a '97 car, so I had no issues.
'78 264GLE
'97 854 T5 (Manual swap/COP/16T/P2R brakes)
'80 264GLE (B21FT/M46/MS) - SOLD '77 242DL (B21F/M45) - SOLD '75 245DL SOLD '85 244GLT DEAD
'83 Tbird Turbo (2.3T/T5/MegaSquirt)
