Corvette Performance - Ok, slave cylinder install...
03-20-2006, 12:55 PM
Truth be told I don't have a service manual for my Vette. I am working on getting one though. I already know how to do the heads/cam/LT install for spring break but what I am unsure of is how to install my new 01+ slave cylinder as well as how to do the drill mod on my C5. I know there are radical differences between it and an F-Bod. If anyone can offer in sage like advice it would be much appreciated! :confused:

Thanks for the link, second dumb question.......where is the slave cylinder located in the C5? I think it's in the rear isn't it?

front, sits against the clutch itselft, bolts to torqe tube, if you crawl under there you can see the lines going to it....

Thank you guys so much. LS1tech is great for asking questions and not getting jack ass responses. So I have to remove the drive shaft and transaxle stuff to get at it. Bummer.
Oh and Assassin feel free to email me some pics of your car and it's boosted engine bay...... firstname.lastname@example.org

Holyshiznit you sure are going all out on mods!
Got the final parts coming for my two stage shot, hope to be done next month.

Hey Beer I been meaning to ask you, do you know of any place that I can buy a twin bottle holder? I have the LS1 Timing Tuner and I am going to run a progressive 200 wet shot but I want to have both my bottles in the car.
Anymore advice on swapping the slave would be excellent.

Here is a link for entire clutch install and removal with tips on slave cylinder.

^^^ THanks for the link. Do you really have to remove the whole drivetrain and rear subframe to do the slave cylinder? That's rough. But oh well.

Did mine one year ago... The rear diff, trans and TQ tube have to come out.... and yes it is a beast. We used trans jacks and a 4 post lift. Wiring looms are a point to watch when you are putting it all back together, you can easily crush the wiring...

SOB. Oh well, no way I can do that in my garage. I don't have a trans jack/lift. Oh well I will just do the heads/cam/bolt-ons install and wait to do the rest.

You do not have to have a lift... it just made the process easier... still time consuming...

you should have the tt/m6/diff out in 2 hours, there's not much to it, helps to have a few people for the install

I did that job on my garage floor with a pair of ramps and a set of jackstands. Yes its a bitch the first time, but once you know the steps its easily a one day job. Infact..I may be doing it again soon since I'll probably need to upgrade my clutch :(
