Thanks, but that still doesn't answer my question.
I appreciate the research done on the hose/cap you include in your kit, but I'm not asking for the type of material they are made of because I want to find them on my own. Instead, I'm asking because I'd like confirmation that they are the material that I need/want them to be before pulling the trigger on purchasing this kit...so whether they are special and hard to find outside of this kit is irrelevant to me.

JDP, do you have any instructions for installing the kit?
I'm planning on installing mine soon, and didn't get any instructions.
I guess that once I get started it should be straight forward??
Thanks

I'd like to see instructions as well. I'm thinking about buying one of these and curious why an extra line is needed - can the original line just be attached to the new reservoir?

A new line is needed because once you attach the bracket in this kit under the stock brake/clutch reservoir and then attach the new reservoir to the bracket, the original line will not reach the new reservoir.

Any response? I just want to know before I pull the trigger on this kit. PM me the answer if you'd like to sell a kit...

Hey Jordan, I'm about to make the order on the stage I kit. Could you post up some install instructions? I want to see how difficult it is. Excuse me if you've already addressed where to get the instructions. Thanks!

basically the same except the video has a bent bracket whereas JDPs bracket is straight out rather than angled so the original hose won't reach hence the need for the hose they supply.



I don't mean to post this up as a "dont buy the kit and DIY" I just think its a well put together video and shows you exactly how to do it minus adding the new hose which should be easy enough to figure out

**If this post comes off as it hurts JDPs sale of the product please let me know and I'll remove the video or a mod can take it down**

I didn't feel like making my own kit plus they get it to you at a great price. Just ordered my stage 1 kit.

Thanks JDP

Thanks! My stage 1 kit is on! Great mod, the only thing I hate is removing the original clutch line from the firewall, it's a total pain!

Car is now protected

I'm glad you were able to get everything worked out! The clamp for the Stage 1 Cap is small but it works once it has been opened up a bit it works well. I didn't want to go to the worm type clamps as they don't look OEM.

Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions. I appreciate your business and support! Have a great day and we'll talk to you soon!

Kind regards,

Have you had issues with the plug on the reservoir and motive bleeders. Can it hold up to 20psi without popping off?

It should be okay, but typically we only run our bleeders up to about 5psi. I think it would ultimately come down to the clamp used.

Just installed. I think when I poured new fluid, it did not run through the new tube. I pumped the clutch a couple of times and then filled up again. Did this until the fluid level stopped moving.

Did I goof up somewhere or is this okay? Should I worry about air in my clutch?

Thanks

I finally got around to completing this mod. However, it was a pain in the ass! I had such a hard time taking the clamp off the stock brake/clutch line on the firewall side because I could not reach in there with my right hand and my injured left shoulder doesn't have its complete range of motion back to allow me to do it with my left hand. Therefore, I ended up bending the bracket provided with this kit on the clutch reservoir so that it was close enough to attach the stock brake/clutch line to it. Another problem I had was with the small clamp that is provided with the plug in this kit. It was way too small and I couldn't make it go over the tip of the stock brake/clutch reservoir nipple. I ended up having to purchase a bigger clamp from Auto Zone. It was slightly bigger than it needed to be, but small enough to prevent the plug from coming out.





This allows the usage of the stock brake/clutch line, which is what I wanted all along. Therefore, you don't have to go through the hassle of replacing the stock line!

Glad you got it in! That clamp on the firewall can be a real PITA! We recommend a long set of needle nose pliers, preferably with a small bend in them like so:

This will make short work of that clamp.

As for the cap clamp, it is a bit small, but if you open it up using 2 sets of pliers, it will provide a very good hold.

Feel free to call, Pm or email me anytime with questions.

Tyler

For those who can't seem to use the small clamp that was provided, I used a zip-tie and turned it towards the bottom so you can't see the little square receiver of the zip-tie. I tightened the crap out of it and I cut the excess. It blends in well because it's black.
