    The brake fluid reservoir does also feed the clutch master and slave cylinder. However, even if your clutch fluid all leaks out on the ground there is a step in the reservoir so that the brake fluid will not also fully drain to the point where you get air in the brakes. When I had my engine out I let the clutch line leak fully out but brakes stayed just fine and I did not have to bleed them.

    Sorry I just now saw this reply, I don't remember getting an email for the reply. That setup looks solid! I don't have any doubts that it wouldn't work.

    Anyways I know why I'm popping lines off. In changing baskets and everything I didn't put the OEM FPR back in so basically nothing controlling the fuel pressure. I have a plan to just run an aftermarket regulator pre-HPFP and that should solve it. Pretty dumb mistake, not sure what I was thinking when I was going through everything.

    On the clutch issues, I bought a power bleeder so I can bleed the system myself just haven't gotten around to it yet. I ordered a new TOB today because I'm leaning towards that being the under lying issue, it was only 40 bucks and good to have on hand even if I don't need it.

    For 450 pump mod I make sure they are running an external FPR. The way i run and the way j recommend is splitting the feed to the HPFP and PI this will use the FPR on the PI for the LP system.
