    Light Clutch Pedal (New Clutch)

    After my slave cylinder finally went out on me, I ended up replacing everything...slave, master cylinder, clutch, etc. I haven't done the drill mod yet, but its definately in the near future. I originally was going to go with the LS7 clutch, but ended up going with the Luk Pro Gold clutch with aluminum flywheel, just becuase I got the whole kit for the same price as the Ls7 kit. The problem is a really light clutch pedal. (Not a sticky clutch pedal) Its light enough that I could set two or three bricks on there and it would go to the floor. (It always returns fine though) I'm about 95% sure I got the system completely bled. A luk clutch should be pretty stiff, right? I wasn't sure if this was a common thing that I don't know about with a new clutch...something about the breakin process or something. Is there anything else that I'm missing that could contribute to a light clutch pedal?

    Drilling out the restrictor in the fitting on the hose that goes from the master cylinder to the slave cylinder. It allows more clutch fluid to flow.

    I would't complain about a easy/soft pedal its better than a stiff pedal. I would let the clutch break in and see if it changes. If you don't have any problems with it sticking at WOT once its broke in I'd say your good to go.

    Even with the new hydraulics, and assuming I don't have a probelem with sticking after a few hunred miles, would you still recommend the drill mod? The mechanic I used mentioned something about it would blow out the master cylinder if I did it. Of course he doesn't, by any means, specialize in F-bodies so I didn't listen to closely.

    Almost every clutch has a different feeling pedal so if your not having any problems with it like sticking or grinding your good. The drill mod is a very popular mod it really seems to help with high rpm shifting. I've never heard of the drill mod blowing the master. There's thousands of m6 gm vehicles running with the drill mod.
