Good stuff. IDEALG is correct about this problem afflicting brand new cars. My car just broke 1500 miles. The first time I screamed it up to 6000 rpm it had 800 miles on it...grind. In horror, I pulled into the liquor store to grab some brews and let it cool down a bit. Pulled back onto the road and blasted up to 6000 and grind again. My head was about to explode (glad I grabbed some beers). I tried it one more time and made for-damn-sure that the clutch pedal was slammed onto the floor then I slowed down the 1 -2 shift just a bit and it went right in, no problem. My 4th gen never had this problem. It could take what ever I could dish out including bouncing it off the rev limiter, no-lift-shift style. The new car is very disappointing indeed.

That Vette article has me wondering if the Camaro has forward bell housing panels? Not so much for debris removal, but for added cooling. I haven't had my car long enough to have spent much time under it, so I just don't know. My other thought is, and perhaps IDEALG can chime in, how close is the clutch master cylinder to the exhaust manifold/system? There tends to be a huge amount of heat generated by the exhaust when driving the car hard. Perhaps a well placed heat shield could protect the master cylinder.
A heat shield wouldn't hurt but i dont feel the clutch master cylinder is getting hot especially because its mounted inside the car and not outside. it mounts to your clutch pedal bracket inside the car. However it is possible that the hydraulic lines are getting too hot But i still disbelieve this since i know camaro owners who have the all new hydraulic line from Tick performance which are suppose to help against heat and swelling of the line and they still have problems. This grind is just a nitemare

Since you have turbos i would assume you are creating more heat then those of us without turbos so in this case i would recommend trying to devert the heat away from hydraulics.

lingenfelter has a return spring. and it helps pull the pedal off the floor. Tick Performance also makes a braided and insulated line that goes from the slave to the master so it doesnt heat up and become pliable.. because if it does what happens is you press the clutch pedal in and the rubber hose expands and doesnt allow enough pressure to activate the slave cyl. Crapppppyyy GM designs here folks.

Hey IDEALG do you have a way of checking to see if the SS clutch line is interchangable with the V6 line in this process? I am wanting to put the stainless line on mine but not sure if it will work. Thanks!

where it connects to the master cylinder it will be the same. i used the same line to test the SS and the V6 cylinders using the factory clips and all. I dont know if its the same fitting on the trans though. i haven't had a V6 here in the shop yet.
