If it's proven to work during all the testing, I'd get one.

I would be interested in something like this. I have a LPE upgraded 20% ZR1 clutch. I hope something like this could help me out. This clutch hasn't been drag racing friendly with me.

This master cylinder flows more fluid and feels better then stock.

What i'm looking for is a volunteer. I want to install one of my master cylinders in someone elses car and see if it works for them.

So heres the deal:

I need one volunteer
you car must have a stock trans and i would like a stock clutch but i will accept an aftermarket clutch
and your car must only grind second gear at high rpm shifting only. If it grinds during regular driving or low rpm shifting i wont test it on your car.
you get to keep the master cylinder for free for being a test sample.

who would like to volunteer?
it will take me a few days to get another master cylinder built.

Add me to the list. I had the sticking clutch pedal and got a mantic single disk and at the same time put in the Tick performance SS master line and remote bleeder. The pedal doesn't stick any more but still feels a little spongy with hard driving/shifting. And you're right that remote bleeder line makes it easy to bleed.

Also...
Are there rubber bushings on the clutch slave cylinder on these cars? (replace with poly/solid metal)
How long is the slave cylinder plunger? (install longer plunger)
Are the clutch lines rubber? (replace with stainless lines)

The slave cylinder will only move as much the master cylinder will allow it.
Thats why with making the master cylinder flow more volume of fluid it will push the slave cylinder further provided theres enough room for it to move further.

I wonder if expanding the master cylinder will fix our problem on the AY6? Do you guys know if the master cylinder is the same for both vehicles?

Its the same part number so i yes i believe its the same .

I would need a v6 car to try it out though

Interested depending on price. Was going to do the lines and maybe a separate reservoir this year sometime, it'd be nice to do this at the same time.

I just want everyone to please understand that this fix is primarily for high rpm shift grind. if your transmission is grinding at low speeds you probably have internal transmission issues.

I suggest everyone to change their fluid to royal purple or red line.
I also suggest that you let the transmission reach full operating temp. before beating on your car and shifting aggressively.
Shifting aggressively or at high rpm with this transmission cold with most definitely cause a grind .

I dont blame you for wanting to try this if your trans grinds at low speeds and in some cases it may fix the problem but dont be disappointed if it doesn't. its most likely an internal trans problem at low speed grinds.

I love this idea, the master def needs to flow faster. Also another problem is the extremely long clutch pedal travel. If you're driving the car at high rpm's shifting it's very easy to not remove your foot off the clutch pedal completely which in turn overheats the fluid and throw-out bearing which melts the plastic sleeve on the slave cylinder and then the slave blows out! I'm on my 4th slave already.

If this master could be made adjustable also like the ones that Tick makes for other gm cars we would be able to shorten the pedal travel and still flow more volume of fluid and it would be alot easier to not ride the clutch pedal and overheat it and you can shift faster. Either that or make a better slave that can take the heat

I've installed the tick adjustable master on my GTO and it completely changed the vehicle. Clutch travel is at about 50% from stock and since it flows more with less travel no more grinding gears and you can shift alot faster.

But either way i would be interested in ANYTHING that would make shifting easier at high rpm. My tranny has grinded second since day one. I've also had the sticking clutch pedal at high rpm launches since day one. The Lingenfelter return spring kit eliminated that problem though.

So yeah add me to the list. I'm def interested

Right, but additionally...

Stainless lines will not expand as much as rubber lines, and so has the same effect as pushing more fluid.
No amount of extra fluid will be used effectively if the plunger in the slave cylinder isn't long enough to actually move further.
If there is more pressure acting on the clutch, but the slave cylinder is being pushed back instead of pushing the clutch more due to rubber bushings, none of the fixes in regard to fluid flowing will be as effective as they could be.

I'm just trying to help the people with the problem. I don't know the Camaro well enough to know about the bushings, plunger, etc but I think it would be worth investigating. Seems like you are just dismissing the ideas without even checking them out.
