Advantage

This product eliminates your weak factory rubber clutch line with a high performance stainless steel line. When thinking of what this product will do, think brake lines. The infamous spongy brake pedal is associated with weak factory rubber brake lines. The same is true for clutch lines. When you step on the clutch pedal the clutch line accumulates hydraulic pressure to release the clutch pressure plate. When the factory rubber line deteriorates or when using an upgraded clutch, this becomes more noticeable. The result is often less than full disengagement of the clutch. This can result in premature clutch wear, slow shift times, or even missing gears. By changing out the rubber clutch line with a stainless steel braided line your are truly in control of your clutch.

Added features

USP is also pleased to anounce our stainless steel clutch line with an upgraded metal slave cylinder. This removes the failure prone factory plastic slave cylinder with a much more reliable metal slave cylinder. At the same time the metal slave cylinder allows for full engagement and disengagement of the clutch. This will further enhance your control of your clutch. The metal slave cylinder also incorporates a metal bleeder screw now you don't have to worry about stripping the factory plastic one.

Some FAQs

What does this product do?
The purpose of this product is to remove the weak rubber line that expands under pressure from the pressurized clutch hydraulic system and replace it with a stainless steel line that does not expand under pressure.

How does this product work?
When you step on the clutch pedal, pressure is sent out of the master cylinder through the factory clutch line. From there, it goes into the slave cylinder which applies pressure to the clutch pressure plate, releasing the clamping load. The problem is that with an upgraded clutch, the clamping force on the pressure plate is increase resulting in more pressure required to disengage the clutch. With the factory hydraulic pressure let alone the increase in hydraulic pressure caused by an upgraded clutch, the line expands. As the line expands less pressure and energy is used to disengage the clutch, and more energy is wasted as the factory clutch line expands. The stainless steel line eliminates this because it does not expand under pressure.

Where does this product install?
This product replaces the clutch line which is located between the clutch master and slave cylinders. If you purchase the clutch line with metal slave cylinder, the metal slave cylinder replaces the factory plastic slave cylinder.

How entailed is the installation of this product?
Installation is straight forward and requires basic hand tools such as wrenches and sockets. The clutch system will also need to be bled after installation. Installation should take 1-2 hours.

What warranty does this product have?
The clutch lines carry a lifetime warranty and the metal slave cylinders have a 1 year warranty

I have a question. Will this unit change the engagement point of the clutch (pedal)?

jaychen

I believe the engagement point is changed from either the total height of the new clutch or the length of the rod?

There are posts where people said the length of the rod on the metal slave changes the engagement point. This was found in the B5 S4 section, and wanted to know if it applied to the 01a also. What they did was simply take the rod out of the stock clutch slave, and place it into the Sach's unit. I was wondering if this is necessary, because I too like the high engagement point.

I picked mine up from USP a while ago, but was planning on installing it when I replace my clutch. That time is right around the corner, and figure I get this information now than deal with issues as most of us do (deal with it when the time comes).

The rod will not change the engagement point unless your clutch setup at this point engages all the way down at the floor and does that will full travel of the slave piston, the metal slave rod is just slightly shorter then the stock one. What the shorter rod will do is reduce the actual amount of travel that the slave piston will have. So if your clutch has the correct stack height and designed so that the PP needs the standard amount of travel then you shouldn't have a problem when installing the metal body slave.

You sure about this Mike?

I thought the metal slave rod was longer than some of the stock rods which resulted in a higher engagement point. I just order mine so I guess I'll see what the difference is when it comes in.

Do you have these in stock and at sale price for a b7 a4? If so, I def need this. Would you recommend switching out the the Master Slave Cylinder as well seeing that I haven't touched the fluid since the purchase of the car?

yes they are in stock. No need to switch out the master cylinder.

What if I haven't changed my fluid since 2007? Not sure about Audis but other cars in doing so will cause problems by not replacing the fluid and master as well. I've been out of the game for a while which is why I'm double checking. Now, you answered "Yes they are in stock", can you honor the sale price of 150$ as well?

you should be fine just doing a fluid flush on the clutch and brake system. Yes I will honor the sale price.
