Review & Install Video

Hey, guys, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com, here with the McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Line Upgrade for the 2005 to 2014 V8 Mustang. The McLeod hydraulic clutch line's going to be for the manual S197 V8 owners that are looking to get away from the weak factory plastic line and replace it with a durable line that's not going to fail or stick and will improve pedal feel. This is a direct fit for the S197s that have a V8, including the 4.6L, the 5.0L, and the 5.4. It's gonna give some piece of mind, as well as a little performance improvement. So this is a braided stainless steel hose. It's going to take the place of the plastic clutch fluid line that the Mustang comes from the factory with. This right here is your factory line, and you can see the difference between the two with the braided line. The factory line does have the potential to expand, fail, or split over time, or even under high heat. The additional pressure in the line that's created by aggressive driving can also cause a line to start sticking or fail, and I'm sure you can imagine this is not a fun experience. It also creates a sloppy feeling clutch. The braided stainless steel line is going to work to resist to that expansion under pressure, and it's also a high flow line that will give better flow, which is how this line is superior over the factory line, especially if you're an aggressive driver. The braided stainless steel is also gonna give protection and reinforcement against heat, abrasion, and road debris. It's 36 inches long, which is not too long to have too much line, but it is long enough to route nicely and away from the headers. Because this line is going to increase the fluid flow capacity and because this line does not have the unwanted expansion capabilities that the factory line has, it's also going to improve clutch pedal feel. No expansion outwards of the fluid means only a direct pressure, and that means a firmer pedal feel and you can expect to feel a noticeable improvement in grip and bite of the clutch. As far as price, you're looking at just over $60 for this line right here. There are other versions of this line available if you didn't want to run the McLeod. Both Ford Racing and SR Performance have clutch line upgrades. Of course, Ford Racing is gonna be more expensive, and the SR Performance is going to have a more affordable price, so those others are definitely something to consider. The install here is not very difficult. It's actually pretty easy. All that you're really going to need is a few basic tools and a small pick. I'd also have a shop rag or two for the drips, and maybe some extra fluid in case you end up needing it. You might have to move your intake tube away from the firewall so you can get to the clutch line, and the top connection on the firewall can be removed using the metal pick and then you can pull the line out of its fitting. I would just slide the clip back into its place after you get the line out, and then you'll need to raise the car on a lift or on jack stands, either one. Once you locate the lower connection from the underside of the car, on the driver side of the trans, the line comes out the same way. Just slide the retaining clip back until it releases the line. You can pull the line out of the elbow, and that's all it takes to get the stock line out. The new line is best installed by fitting it into the firewall first and then install the bottom, which pushes into the metal retaining clip in the fitting. After this, it's just a matter of bleeding the clutch, which is a lot of pumping the pedal. Just make sure to check the fluid reservoir and refill it if it needs it. Once the pedal feels normal, you're set for a test drive, and then just check the fluid level again once you get back. It's as simple as that. It's a pretty easy install that should take an hour or two, and is a one out of three wrenches on the scale. Wrapping things up here, the McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Line is stainless steel and has increased flow capacity. It's good for both piece of mind and a touch of performance improvement from the clutch. The line doesn't allow for expansion, and its braided stainless steel is a definite upgrade over the factory plastic line. You can check it out more online right here, at AmericanMuscle.com.

Performance Upgrade. Replace that restrictive factory hydraulic clutch line with a McLeod high flow line that will allow for better flow and improve clutch performance.

Application. This McLeod High Performance Hydraulic Clutch Fluid Line is designed as a direct fit upgrade for the 2005 to 2014 V8 Mustangs equipped with a manual transmission, including the GT, Bullitt, BOSS, and Shelby GT500 models.

Will I need to add transmission fluid after installing this, and, if so, can I add something like Royal Purple Synchromax without doing a full change? I am not sure what fluid comes in my 13 Mustang GT.

    legs of steel

    well all I can say is that it was very interesting to install. I was really not wanting to jack my car up. but I did. doing this install you must be very careful to not lose the clips. one thing that you will need is a vacuum plug. you will also need couple picks, 9/16, 1/2, needle nose. plenty of rags or paper towel. when removing the line start at the top. use a pick to remove the clip. when the clip is out make sure you don't flick it. I flicked mine an lost it. it is a dealer part an one mad wife. but the car gods were looking out for me. I found it. hook the line up an put the clip in to secure it. feed the line to the bottom. when the fluid comes out plug it with the vacuum plug. remove the line from the transmission. remove the elbow from the old line an connect it to the new one and then to the transmission. lower the car an check the fluid. add fluid and pump the clutch pedal about 50 times. check fluid, let the car sit for about 10 minutes and pump the pedal again an you should be good. clutch fills real good no more miss shifts. this is a must do mod. P.S. don't go house hunting with the wife afterwards. your left leg will thank you

    Recommended Upgrade

    The stock transmission can be a bit clunky sometimes when under pressure, and not having the pressure to get the clutch to disengage when you need it to under fast shifting conditions doesn't help. The clutch line upgrade is definitely worth the investment to strengthen the line transferring the hot fluid to the hydraulic throw out bearing. After hearing various Mustang owners talk about it in person and on the forums I decided to swap it out while swapping the clutch, and I'd highly recommend it.

    Good upgrade

    The line is made in perfect length and installed in less than an hour. A tip is to remove the plastic elbow from the transmission housing, let the brake fluid drips out, then thread the OEM plastic line out from the top. Install is the exact opposite. Snap the line into the elbow, thread the line back into place and snap the elbow onto the bell housing. No fumbling with the snap clips at all. Also consider wrapping the stainless line with a thermo sleeve just to keep the line from getting heat soaked. It is close to the exhaust and back of the engine.

    did exactly what it was designed for

    after having many issues with the Mustang and it's MT82 transmission this was one of many small fixes. after installation the clutch is now smooth. Much easier to engage and more consistent.

    Good upgrade for the MT82

    Installed this line in about an hour, be careful with the clips and undo the bottom side first to let the fluid drain. This line routes better than the oem line because you can keep it away from the headers more. Most of all speed shifting or powershifting is so much more consistant now. I already have the steeda shift bracket but with this line and the bracket it makes it much easier to powershift 3rd gear consistanly.

    Easy to install

    Hard to tell exactly how much improvement from this because I installed new flywheel and clutch at the same time. The 3 together made significant improvement on my 2011 V6, and eliminated difficult notchy shifting, and no more dual mass flywheel vibration.

    quick, simple, and a little messy

    I actually have a 2014 v6 mustang not the v8. I called McLeod and he had actually never had a v6 owner ask if it would fit. Its the same clutch and tranny as the 5.0 and fit perfectly. Brings the clutch engagement up off of the floor a little bit and helps out with those quick shifts! Not to mention the added insurance of a stainless line.

    Clutch line

    Line fitment was perfect,clutch stays engaged instead of the pedal dropping,the problem is the factory line is plastic and expands thus pressure going outward instead of towards the slave cylinder causing less clutch travel, this line corrects that Ford should have done this in the beginning this is a must have mod

    Great pedal feel and smooth operation

    I purchased this line for my 07 Shelby GT500 since my factory one failed right where it connects to the elbow. The line gives you a lot of routing options and is simple to install, took about 45 in my garage. It's even easier if you have the vacuum bleeder for the clutch/brake res.

    Left Foot is Happy

    A friend and I replaced this line in about two hours including doing a manual bleed on the system. I know it's supposed to be self bleeding if you pump the clutch enough, I just don't trust that. I suggest doing this on a lift, but it can be done from under the car if you get it high enough. The fit, the quality, the fittings, are all top notch. There were no leaks although we used Teflon tape on the threads. Before changing this line the clutch would start to grab and about 50% pedal travel, now it's about 25%. Shifts are smoother and crisper. I can't describe the feel of the pedal, almost as if someone changed to clutch; it has a total different feel. Different in a good way. All I can say is that if you have a manual transmission, do yourself a favor and get this upgrade. I'm very happy with it. Money well spent.

    Good mod to replace esp if you have headers replaced the whimpy plastic one you'll need a pik tool with long handle and some patience but you can do it way better deal than spending almost 4 times as much for a ford racing line this line is actually easier to put in as it is all flex

    High volume clutch line

    I had heard lots of information about needing this and the change it would make. I suffered from high RPM shifting causing the clutch to remain halfway down in my Boss 302. I finally decided to replace the restrictive OEM plastic tubing with this high volume line. I didn't want to pay over $200 for Ford's version. This was super easy to install, long enough to run it up away from the headers, and looks great to boot! Took me longer to bleed the clutch than it did to install it. Total work time was maybe 20 minutes, including jacking the car up and placing the jack stands!
