If you've read my build thread in the build section, you already know that my clutch slips some. The shop says it's nothing too bad, and shouldn't be worried about as of right now. However, my OCD has kicked in and I want to fix the issue before it gets out of hand. Cutting to the chase, I've found what I think would be best for my style of driving, and want some input from those who have done this sort of thing before.

South Bend SS clutch and Aluminum flywheel.

ZSpeed heavy duty slave and willwood clutch master cylinder.

I figure, since the slave cylinder has to be replaced after the tranny gets pulled, I might as well step it up and improve it where the OEM parts lack. I've already ordered Urethane Trans mounts for stiffer support. Thanks for any input!

Have you spoken with Joe Allison at ZSpeed? He would not sell a marginal part and he will explain the differences in the slave and master - get his expert advice and base your purchase on that. And, I would be a bit concerned if a shop told me that any clutch slip "is not too bad".

I've messaged them a bit, still waiting on a reply from them. But since it's Sunday I'm not getting too impatient with that. And I think what he actually said was "it won't be noticed". On the dyno graph it only dipped probably 10TQ around 4K RPM. Personal translation to "not too bad".

10lbs-ft of torque is alot when you only have 243lbs-ft. My DE 350Z was putting down 259lbs-ft and I would have cried if it dipped 10lbs-ft
