excellent. So if I see that the 'brake' fluid is getting dirty looking, I can gradually replace it with Dot4 fluid (which apparently is somehow better)?!

Depending on the brand Dot 4 has a some what higher boiling point, So yes you can. ( That sounds like a theme from 2 years ago)

I will be doing the GTO reservoir also to help this POS Stick / Clutch in the V6 to feel more like a decent trans. When I sit at the light after decent braking on a HOT day I get a light pulsating feedback in my pedal when the clutch pedal is to the floor.

At the dealership now for the same problems and they say there is nothing wrong with it. I guess I'll try the separate resevoir and also a tranny fluid exchange for RP. See if it makes any difference. Where were you able to find the 3/8" plug? Auto parts store, home depot???

Thanks for your help.

Any auto parts store will have it, One more thing I know as this is a new car we as customers don't think we are its right to have too change the brake/Clutch fluid in the reservoir, And i think the same way, But this is a high performances can and dos require some maintenance.

All i did was go to walmart Get some dot 4 brake/Clutch fluid .

I really wish somebody would do a DIY thread or video of how to install/create a separate Reservoir.

Have you tried hard launches and has the clutch pedal stuck with the separate reservoir?

Yes me and more ppl have done hard launches in this car, But a separate reservoir is only 1/2 the job, Replacing the clutch fluid in the reservoir before and after a track day is the key to stopping this problem.

Can you post more information about the hoses and fittings you used for the new resevoir?

It looked like you just unhook the hose from the brake/clutch reservoir, plug the hole, attach to the gto clutch reservoir. Am i right?

I just got my GTO clutch reservoir from GMPartsDirect... I ordered a month ago and got an email saying it was on national backorder (3rd time trying to order it). Then 2 weeks later I got another email saying it had shipped.

Now I guess I need to install it...

I'm interested in this mod as well. If it helps any on the v6 I'll probably end up doing it myself.

That is all it takes to do it, and get a 3/8 plug and 2 hose clamps

No all you do is pump the pedal 10 times stop and pump it one more set.

I also got the call that my GTO reservoir and new Camaro reservoir are in. I believe it's been posted before, but the L99 and LS3 cars both use the same combined reservoir...there's just a tab that they snap off to attach the hose for the manual cars. I am going with a new reservoir to avoid any issues with the hose plug leaking...
