You need a 4th gen f-body slave, not the slave that comes with that kit. That kit is for a TKO.

There are other vendors that sell only the firewall mount for the MC. That's the critical part. Then you add a Wilwood MC, the f-body slave, and buy a braided hose to run from the MC to the slave. Speedway sells them in various lengths.

Have you looked at Bowler's setup?

I like bowlers setup too, any downside to running the MC at 90 degrees? this kit is the only one I've seen like it.

Default clutch

Man, that's a huge up-charge for two DSE parts $25 and $100. Plus a wilwood master. $85 ish.

You're missing quite a few additional parts from Bowler, which are included in the kit linked above:

-Firewall Mount Bracket
-Billet Tilton Angle Adapter
-Tilton Black Anodized Master Cylinder
-Billet Reservoir
-24″ Braided Line
-4AN 90 Fitting
-4AN to -4AN Male Adapter
-Hardware and linkage to attach to factory clutch pedal – if needed

The billet reservoir/braided line/fittings make up the differences.

The McLeod setup is $247 on Summit. It is a complete kit that includes a pedal that is predrilled and is available in GM QD or AN fittings. I am currently installing it on my car. The fluid reservoir is plastic. McLeod offers an aluminum version with a braided hose for an additional $200 if you feel like upgrading.

1434002 for aftermarket slaves. 1434002QD for stock GM slaves. The billet kit is PN 139410. McLeod Tech support stated to use a stock slave for my application. I purchased the LUK LSC265B version for $42 on Summit. This was cheaper than the $120- 150 I see the GM-stamped version selling for. I will be running the RST clutch.

Corey R, did you have to fab up a clutch pedal stop to limit over travel, necessary or not with the Mcleod setup? I'm using the same kit but am not at the install stage just yet. Leaning towards Ram 78131 hyd. bearing kit myself for TKO.
