REVIEW: PHASE 2/P2M SS Clutch Line

Hi,

I got these from ebay given that our cars are now 10 years+ old the rubber hose are probably starting to deteriorate. I just installed these last night and they were the perfect length and fit. I know our clutch line doesn't see that much pressure and this mod probably won't make a night and day difference as it did with the SS brake lines. However, I do think that the rubber may still expand a bit which may potentially move the engagement point of the clutch around ever so slightly after the car warms up. It may be a placebo effect but I was running through my gears pretty smoothly last night and the clutch felt very linear.

The fit was perfect on these though. I only encountered one problem, which was that I couldn't get the clip holder all the way in for one side, but I'm sure that thing is not moving anywhere. It's on there pretty tight. $23 from ebay and peace of mind is worth it. I'm going to get one for the MIata as well. It takes about 45 mins to install.

Install procedures:
1. bleed all the clutch fluid using bleeder tool
2. swap lines out
3. pour fluid into the clutch reservoir and bleed all the air out
4. close the bleeder screw and pump the clutch a couple times to make sure it's solid then drive.

It does look pretty though, here are some pics =):
