I think everyone's reservoir is cool because they actually allow your clutch system to work properly.

Billet aluminum parts are awesome, but not practical for every single automobile part, for me being able to see the fluid through the reservoir is an added bonus one quick glance and I can see what colour it is.

After several weeks of driving vehicle the fluid is just as clear as it was from day1, so I'd say there is definitely an issue with sharing it with the braking system.

All I purchased was the GTO reservoir, 2 spacers and a plug and clamp for the brake reservoir. I used the original clutch line from the brake reservoir which is why I used the spacers.

Looks good. I mounted the reservoir on the battery cable post mount as I thought it looked more factory but it does necessitate a longer than stock EPDM hose.

I like it either place, but next winter my battery cable post mount may be history.

Wouldn't a larger reservoir than the GTO one be a better option? I would think more fluid would provide better cooling capacity to help prevent boiling.

That might be true if the fluid circulated around the whole system, but I think the fluid does not move around much. Just like the brake system there is no return of the fluid back to the reservoir.

Another reservoir installed today by IDEALG use my location and you don't need to buy a longer hose. here's a few pics I did the yellow one today and the orange one a week or two ago.

Use spacers like these from Lowes and you won't need a longer hose.

I couldn't make it through the entire thread due to being on a Slow internet server at work. But has anyone had any trouble like the Clutch fluid loss and being you have seperate resevoir the sensor not catching it??Possibly burning up the clutch or somethg else. Anyhow it would leave you stranded. I don't race nor drive my car often so I would hope to see fluid leak in the garage after a run. But unfortunately I have had guess under my hood(rats) and didn't eat up anything but you just never know. I check each time I ride bc my car stays under a cover for 4-5 wks all the time. I want to add this to my car as I see it is a good upgrade to maintain clean brake fluid and able to flush your clutch fluid and not have to worry about all the bleeding and stuff for brakes each time. Just surious to know if this has been a issue or anything. I'm sure the GTO has an extra sensor for this. or any car that comes equipped with a seperate reservoir.

Not sure what you mean by :
"But has anyone had any trouble like the Clutch fluid loss and being you have separate resevoir the sensor not catching it?"
If you lost all or most of the clutch hydraulic fluid, your clutch wouldn't work correctly and or the transmission would be hard to or impossible to shift.
The separate reservoir for the clutch hydraulic system has many benefits including keeping clutch dust out of the braking reservoir and ease of flushing the clutch hydraulic system to name two. Having clean DOT 3 or DOT 4 in the clutch hydraulic system improves clutch operation and shifting. I no of no good reason why anyone would allow any contamination of any kind in the brake hydraulic system and the stock shared clutch/brake reservoir does just that by permitting cross contamination of brake and clutch dust in the single reservoir. I have measured the DOT4 fluid temperature in my separate clutch reservoir and it has been consistently higher than the brake DOT 4 fluid. Keeping the brake fluid cooler is required especially if you drive the car hard like during track conditions. I'm been trying to figure a way to provide cooling for the clutch hydraulic system as I know that will benefit clutch and transmission operation.
