Question for those who have upgraded clutches

I am looking at doing my clutch/fw install in the next 2 weeks. I was wondering what adjustments you make to the pedal/hydraulic system?

Why are these adjustments made?

And in which direction do you adjust the clutch pedal?

Thanks in advance

when putting in my CC stage 5 sprung hub i did not make a single adjustment, i didnt even have to bleed the slave or master since i didnt break those lines loose at all...if its not out of adjustment now, i dont think you'll need to adjust it after the install

I like Toyotas.

Did a CC stage 4 with Fidanza Alum flywheel and didn't touch it. That was 60K plus miles ago.

I put my centerforce in and didn't really need to adjust it at all. I did just a little, to make the pedal even with the brake pedal though. but it wasn't neccessary. Just make sure you adjust both adjusters if you do something like that, or you could cause excessive wear.

After thinking it over I think Im going to adjust mine and see if I can get it off the floor I tiny bit, though it doesn't need to be, I may benefit from it

Any chatter?
Did you already have a Fidanza flywheel or anything like that or rollin stock style flywheel?

I called him and he wasn't in the office at the time but said he could do it for $325 which is still better than anyone else.. Stage 5 sprung ftw..

I'll just have to hit him up in another couple hours to catch him in the shop to write it all up.
