    Drill mod is for a sticky pedal, which has nothing to do with your clutch. Could very well be your hydraulics. Look into it before you drop a lot of coin on something you might not need.

    my pedal keeps sticking when i rip on the car. i figured it might be cause of the headers now maybe the line is getting very hot. But anyways how is doing the drill mod? is it a pain? Also does it have to be bled after i do it? cause i hear bleeding the system sucks

    Drill mod isn't too bad to do. and yes the clutch needs to be bled, but its not too bad to do with a Mity Vac. Check out the sticky in this section for more details

    I will add, when doing the drill mod, if you pre-bleed the master cylinder before you reattach everything, then pre-bleed the line off that, when I re-connected my line to the slave cylinder, there was no need to bleed anything else. When you disconnect/reconnect the line at the slave cylinder correctly (which is a little hard to get to), it won't allow air in.

    ^^^^ I agree. Thats what I did and it worked fine. I still did a quick bled with it all together but it didn't need it.

    I'm doing the drill mod right now, i have the line off and now i'm going to buy an 1/8th" bit and drill it out, So how can i get the shavings out the bottom of the line? Do i hook it to the master have someone push the pedal and catch the shavings at the bottom? Also what you mean by pre bleed? Just putting fluid in the line itself? Thanks for any help i just want to do this right

    Is there a trick for bleeding or does it just take a while. It was just falling to the floor but now its only coming up maybe a quarter of the way if that. Any quick way to do it or just keep pumping?

    So I went to the track and it was better but still not great. Got stuck half way down this time any suggestions? Maybe using a bigger bit for the drill mod??
