    Get a master cylinder from GM or get the Tick Performance one.
    I've heard that alot of aftermarket clutch setups will end up requiring an adj master to make it work correctly.
    On the LS1 flywheels, it is highly recommended that they not be machined. So if the flywheel is bad enough, it will need to be replaced.

    Sorry to hear about your misfortunes. As the others said, that input shaft is trashed, and was most likely the reason for the hard shifting.

    As for the master, don't go with another Autozone one. I got one from Advance, and it was a piece of shit (no surprise there). It started leaking out of the pushrod seal almost immediately. I returned it to the store and ordered a GM one, which has been good ever since.

    Cutlass - On the Pressure plate, are you referring to the self-adjusting mechanism?? If so, I've never personally see an aftermarket clutch with that feature. Seems to only be on GM OEM clutches.

    Yes I was and after looking around, I had a feeling that was an OEM only thing

    Have you considered the LS7 clutch kit from KYSpeed? Its like $500 shipped and good to about 450 RWHP.
    GMPartsDirect is a good place to get a OEM GM master and pilot bearing

    LS7 sounds good anything I should know about it So as this doesn't happen again. Shims, adjustments, etc... How would I know if the slave is bad or not? I got a new one when I put replaced everythins else. Also what about this input shaft shout I probably get it replaced im assuming? Any suggestions on where or who to get one from if I need it?

    There is a sticky about the LS7 clutch. All you need to know about the LS7 clutch

    You may wanna shop around for a local shop to have the input shaft replaced. Unless you wanna try to clean it up yourself.

    I don't think there is a good way to check you slave cylinder with it out of the car. If you're worried about it, KYSpeed sells the 01-02 updated GM Slave cylinder also.
