    Getting new clutch

    Ive pretty much settled on the RAM powergrip HD clutch for my cammed and sprayed TA due to cost. I get to smell the ls1 clutch each time i beat on the car so its time for a swap.

    is it necessary for me to get an adjustable master and new slave cylinder for this swap, or is that just extra thats not needed?

    I don't think a MC is necessary unless you are having trouble with yours. I would replace the slave while you have the tranny out.

    Not necessarily prone to failing, but its a concentric slave, so replacing it involves removing the transmission completely. Which is why most people don't take the chance and just replace the slave while they have the transmission down. Not worth doing the job twice, really.
