    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.

    Yeah that's exactly what I'm going to do now. Just figuring out what PTFE line I can still use since I ran everything and extra fittings I need. Should be ordering everything in the next day or two. No real rush since it's cold here now. It would be nice to go WOT again with out worrying haha

    Is it too late to say Happy New Year since I haven't posted since last year? lolz

    Car is doing okay, I fixed my fuel issues with a corrugated hose from Radium. I also bought the hard lines like @TRBLSM posted above, they will work just haven't gotten around to changing it because you know still having issues in other areas. My clutch is pretty much dead. I guess the TOB or something is f'd up so now that I can go WOT without worrying about fuel issues my clutch slips anything over 5 PSI. I'm pretty sure I had a TOB issue that would cause it to not engage all the way and must have pre-maturely worn the clutch. I emailed OS Giken and it's 150 bucks to send off my twin disk for them to inspect to see if anything is wrong with it since Oddball couldn't get it to work originally. My OSG clutch has been sitting in my garage collecting dust so I figured I'd try and use it this time around. I'm going to do that when i get my bonus in a couple of weeks. My driver's side outer axle boot is torn again so I need to order a new one of those and do that while I'm replacing the clutch. Not really sure what happened to it since I replaced all the other boots and they are fine. Anyways that's it for now, I really wish I could be posting that I finished my PI system but with all this shit happening I don't feel like messing with it. I just want to enjoy the car.

    Glad to hear you're pushing through I really want to see it make some jam. My clutch has been holding fine so far I hope I'm not going to have similar issues as my engagement is clear at the top too.
