    are you planning to do mechanical or hydraulic clutch. Is it an ls or lt1 t56.

    It’s from an lt1 which is also what I will be putting in the car once I get the money since it is cost effective

    It is supposedly real tough to do mechanical clutch linkage with the pull style lt1 clutch. I ditched all that and went with hydraulic throwout bearing.
