Thats it, just make sure you get the right clutch for the flywheel.

clutch must match flywheel. I think the rest can stay the same assuming it's from the same motor. EG I'm not sure an M42 dual mass is swappable with an M20 single mass without at least a throw out bearing.

Any 325i flywheel '87-'91 ('92 &'93 convertibles too) will be single mass, the 'e' cars got the dual mass.

i know that the dual mass ones are thick and if i where to get a single mass flywheel out of a 325i would the thinner one work? i am thinking that the throw out baring would not have enough throw.

You need to match the clutch kit to the flywheel, so when you swap to a single mass you need to get the 'i' clutch kit.
