    Transmission

    I have recently completed some serious modification to my 2000 Camaro SS. The car has the Tremec T56 6spd, which I converted it to the Viper Spec. which replaces the tail shaft of the tranny, the out-put shaft, and the yoke. I also included the brass sliders and titanium blocker rings for the syncros. I also put in a Center Force Dual Friction Clutch and SLP Steel Billet lightened flywheel. The slave cylinder and release bearing were also replaced. Many other things where also done, but here is my question...

    My friend, who is also the previous owner of the car and a damn good mechanic, suggested that a valve on the master cylinder under the hood near the firewall would need to be drilled out. He says it has something to do with the release of clutch fluid. If any one has heard anything like this and can shead some light on this issue it would be greatly appriciated. Details for the procedure and reasons why I should do it would be awsome.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your help. I printed the information. Will it hurt the car to run without this upgrade. I spent a serous amount of money already and it might be a few months before I can buy this part and do the upgrade.

    it wont hurt your car to run without the drill mod done - its the way the car comes from the factory. And its free to do, just need some tools.
