    Why not donor everything to the R. It'll be worth a lot more than a T5 in the long term?

    Pentafrost NF.

    Can't find a UK supplier. But the Volvo branded stuff can be had for 10/L or less so it's probably not worth shopping about.

    It should. An original R clutch should be fine up-to about 350 bhp & 400nm. You need to be looking at what's wrong with the MAP &/or hardware in your car before replacing the clutch.
