Steel Clutch Line

I noticed that these are on sale at AM this month. Does anyone have one? Can anyone comment on whether it's worth the money or time to install? Seems like another one of the parts that Ford cheaped out on to save money on production so it could be worth it.

VERY worth the switch. Main difference it he orphise is larger so you wont get locked out of a gear during WOT pulls. It takes some time pumping the clutch to get the air out, but still well worth the trouble. Tip: Have a magnet on a extension when undoing the clip near the firewall. If that clip flys off and you cant find it, big problem.

I put one in and didn't notice a differance (I admit to being an Oaf) but love the theory si I'll vote yes.

+1 do NOT loose the clip. You may need to rebleed clutch 2 x I had to do mine again the next day, easy but as Slayer said it takes some pumping (alot really)

It's a easy mod and you can feel the difference. Just like everyone says don't lose the clips!! I lost mine near the fire wall and had to wait 4 days looking for a parts car to take it off of. Dealerships don't have them.

Easy. The one is a tight fit near the firewall, but the ***** thing is pumping the damn clutch. Pump it about 100 times with your hand and another 100 times with your foot. It is a damn good workout LOL

I thought about this and wonder if you can put a piece of string around the part of the clip that you grab so when it does go flying it's tethered. I tried being real careful with mine but still it got away, at least it didn't hide on me when it did. idk but look into this idea

Get one of the cheap magnets on the extender from a parts store. Cheap and works great.
