Is your clutch pedal sticking to the floor when you drive your car aggressively?  Are you having trouble shifting your car quickly in the upper RPMs?  Are 1st Gear and Reverse hard to engage while the car is sitting still?  You’re not alone!

Tens of Thousands of LS1 F-Body owners have cured issues like these (or avoided them altogether) with our Tick Performance Adjustable Clutch Master Cylinder Kits!

GM did not want to replace transmission and driveline parts under warranty, so they designed a very weak, anemic clutch master cylinder barely capable of moving enough fluid to fully disengage the stock clutch in perfect working order.  With years of wear (and/or an aftermarket clutch that requires more fluid to disengage), the inadequacy of the GM Master Cylinder becomes even more apparent.

Our Tick Performance Adjustable Clutch Master Cylinder Kits are built here in the USA around Tilton 7/8” Bore Cylinders (the same used in NASCAR every Sunday) and are made adjustable so that you can tailor the amount of fluid that your system needs in order to fully disengage ANY clutch, from stock to hardcore race-only clutches.  With our kit installed, you’ll notice:

  • A slightly stiffer (we normally see ~15%), shorter pedal (in most cases) due to the increased cylinder bore
  • A clutch pedal that is easier to modulate with a predictable, constant engagement point
  • Effortless shifts at any RPM (especially high RPM), even when driving extremely aggressively
  • Longer clutch & transmission life as a result of a properly-disengaging clutch
  • Multiple other issues and annoyances fixed, including the infamous “crashed pedal”

Every Tick Performance Adjustable Clutch Master Cylinder Kit ships complete with everything needed to install, including our Unrestricted and Heat-Wrapped Stainless Braided Clutch Hydraulic Line (eliminating the need for the "drill mod"), all necessary hardware, and easy to understand instructions.  Installation generally takes 60-90 minutes and adjustments can be made at any time without any tools.

Tick Performance Adjustable Clutch Master Cylinder Kits are capable of more fluid flow than any competitor’s offering, and we stand behind them with a LIFETIME Warranty against leakage.  Rest assured that with our kit installed, you'll have the quickest shifting, most reliable kit available under your left foot!

Option Guide: Do I need a GM Quick Disconnect Tool?
A special tool is NOT necessary in order to remove & reinstall the GM Quick Disconnect Fitting that mates your hydraulic clutch line to your slave cylinder, but it does make the task a bit easier (and reduces the risk of damage) versus using a screwdriver or universal tool.  The GM Quick Disconnect Tool that we offer is specifically designed for use with the GM Quick Disconnect Fitting.

All Tick Performance Adjustable Clutch Master Cylinder Kits are warrantied against leakage for the entire time you own yours! If you develop a leak, simply send the kit back with a copy of your invoice and the cylinder will be replaced or repaired and shipped back to you via Ground free of charge. Our warranty is void when used in non-original ("swap") applications.

    Save your CLUTCH and T56

    This unit is by far the best setup for faster shifts, more reliable shifts, completely eliminates sticking man peddle, some what of a pain to install but SO much easier than swapping in another junk stock unit. I've installed over a dozen of these and would highly recommend doing this with or without a clutch swap.

    F-BODY LS1 Master Cylinder

    Posted by 02HawkT/A on 26th Feb 2016

    I bought this item after losing all hydraulic pressure due to a failed slave cylinder connection. I was determined to take all measures necessary to prevent future issues with the clutch system, and this MC came highly recommended by fellow internet forum users. I took it to a local shop and had the MC shipped directly to them. There was a 2 day delay in shipping, due to a large amount of orders that particular week. Once received, the technician reported severe difficulty installing the MC because of it's additional bulk compared to stock. He said it took him 6 hours to get it installed and bled, and while he didn't charge me that much extra in labor, he says he won't do another without a significant increase in labor fees. I've driven with it installed for 2 full days now, and it definitely adds a little weight to the pedal. I also noticed a shorter friction zone, which I think is good because it means I'm getting solid contact and little slip between gears. I can see how this will help preserve the clutch to last longer than with the stock MC. I have yet to test it in high-RPM shifting conditions, but the shifter moves with less effort, and the delay moving between gears is gone. I give it 4 stars for the delayed shipping, which I was told could be expedited if I would pay to upgrade, and the apparent difficulty of installation which cost me an extra $90. I recommend this upgrade for any LS1 F-Body owner; the Tick MC does not disappoint!

    We continually use the Tick Performance master cylinder on our swaps and upgrade. They fit good, work well, and have great pedal feedback.

    This fixed the problem that two other shops could not.
