    Early 2001 firebirds still used the 2000 and earlier master cylinder. It was a mid year change. You can tell by looking underneath the reservoir cap, if it is stamped with a "00" then you have the early style. I found this info in the march 2006 issue of GM High Tech Performance. They put a Spec stage 3 clutch in their 2001 Trans Am. They recommended upgrading it since it did not flow as much fluid as the later 2001-2002 did. The later 2001-2002 part number is 12570277 for the master, 15046288 for the slave, it includes the new throwout bearing.

    I should note, the ls6 clutch sux. Doesn't grip with sticky tires.

    Why not get the LS7 clutch since it's the same power, has the same driving characteristics, but grips better, will last longer, and hold more power?

    Yep, LS6 clutch came stock in my car.

    That's why I suggest an LS7 clutch.
