I drive around on et streets at about 16psi. That helps the traction a bit ;)

Maybe I missed it, but what master cylinder are you using for your clutch? Wilwood?

I'm just using the Volvo 260 hydraulic master. I checked the size - it's 3/4" bore. Same as the Camaro has with the same T56 clutch slave.

I'm waiting for the results on the use of that master clutch cylinder with the T56 slave... I was under the assumption that I would need a bigger bore master.

I did double check the sizes. But then I do see people running larger master cylinders (by a little bit - 13/16" or 7/8") for 'performance' shifting on T56's.

The main complaint on the stock GM 3/4" master cylinder seems to be related to a tiny orifice built into it to slow the clutch action down, likely done to help lengthen the drivetrain lifespan.

Then, given the relatively cheap price of the Wilwood MCC I'll probably go that route for my setup...

Hence the "drill mod" that is common with t56 f-bodys. They just drill the orifice out.

Built mountain bike trail all morning, then came home and got ALL SORTS OF STUFF DONE.

OK, not really. All I did was finally stick the transmission on the engine for real. Clutch installed, master cylinder in and plumbed (long line for the master cylinder, 12" remote bleeder as well).



Now to see if I can stick it in the car in one piece.
