      1996 850 R upgrade

      Is the M56H transmission the correct one to use for a manual swap?

      Yes, it's one of the M56 variants that you can swap in. I swapped an M56H into my '96 850R

      Yes. They are 20 spline -2002 and 23 spline after that (M56HK).

      You want the 20 spline does you can use an 850R clutch setup with a single mass
