    What's going on guys? Adam here with, and today I'm bringing you my detailed review of the Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder fitting all 11-16 GT and V6 engines. The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder is going to be for all 11-16 GT and V6 owners who are looking to replace their old factory clutch with a new upgraded after-market clutch kit, or if you're experiencing some difficulties and wear on your current throwout bearing that are causing some issues with your gear engagement. Now, before you can look into buying a new hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder, especially like this one from Exedy, it really helps to understand its function. The hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder is a huge part of the clutch engagement. You can kind of say it's the whole heart of the operation. In a nutshell, when you press on the clutch pedal the throwout bearing presses in the pressure plates release fingers, disengaging the clutch, allowing you to change gears. You'll know it's time for a new throwout bearing or slave cylinder for your 11-16 GT or V6 when you're having trouble changing gears, if you're hearing a squealing noise coming from your transmission, or if you're noticing the one you currently have is leaking fluid or has an air leak. Another time it's highly recommended to upgrade your throwout bearing and slave cylinder is when upgrading from the OEM clutch to a new after-market clutch kit. Now at that point, you would want to upgrade to something like the Exedy throwout bearing and slave cylinder, because it's built to handle the extra force needed to operate the upgraded clutch. Now, if you decide not to upgrade your throwout bearing and slave cylinder when you upgrade to a new after-market clutch, you'll realize after a while you'll have rough clutch engagements and even eventually complete failure of your stock throwout bearing, at which point you'll have to drop your transmission and upgrade the whole new throwout bearing. The Exedy Hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder I have here today is a more heavy duty application built to handle the upgraded clutch and flywheels for your vehicle, in which case you don't have to worry about it failing with a tougher clutch applications, and overall it's more reliable part. Now, since the market isn't exactly full of hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder options, and since Exedy pretty much eats, sleeps and breathes everything clutch related, the $180 you'd be paying for this is pretty reasonable. The installation for this part is going to be pretty extensive and will require mechanical expertise. It will require you to drop the transmission, so if it's not something you're comfortable with I'd highly recommend you taking it to a professional, just to get it done safely. Now, if you are the kind of pony owner that likes to do everything hands on, you can expect to be spending a few hours doing this, especially if you decide to swap out your clutch and flywheel while you've got your trans out. It's always recommended. For this installation, swapping the hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder out with this Exedy one is only going to take a couple of minutes. It's dropping the trans that's going to be difficult and time-consuming. With that said, I definitely give it three out of three wrenches on the difficulty scale, leaving this task for one of the pros. Just to quickly wrap things up guys, if you're an 11-16 GT or V6 owner experiencing some difficulties with your throwout bearing, or if you want to just swap yours out while doing the clutch and flywheel, this here Exedy hydraulic throwout bearing and slave cylinder is available right here at

    Reliable. When upgrading to handle more power people will replace their clutch and flywheel, but will often forget to upgrade their stock Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and this can cause serious problems with gear engagement. So upgrade to the new Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder for reliability.

    Installation Note. Exedy's Hydraulic Slave Cylinder will require to be bench bleed before installation for proper operation. Complete instructions on the bleeding procedure are included.

    Application. The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing and Slave Cylinder is specifically designed for use in the 2011-2020 GT and V6 Mustangs with a Exedy or Stock Clutch installed.

        Will this work with a T56 Magnum XL?

        • The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing/Slave Cylinder was designed for use with the MT82 Transmission. Depending on how your T56 conversion was done, this may be compatible. If you are using a stock or stock style throw out bearing, you should have no issues, however if any changes were made for clutch actuation with the swap, this will not be compatible.

        I've been seeing comments that this is exactly the same as the oem part from ford now will the clutch pedal feel and lighter when replacing this part or will it be the same stiffness as the oem in my vehicle right now? and what would steps what I need to talk to lighten my clutch pedal feel?

        • The Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing/Slave Cylinder is not an OEM Ford replacement part. However, this Slave Cylinder/Throwout Bearing will function and perform almost identically to the original Ford equipment.

            Came with a tear in the boot.

            Product came with a tear in the boot. Felt cheap. Noticed a noise from the transmission after install. Not sure if it's a bad throw out bearing or input shaft bearing. I would of contacted AM but I didn't notice until 6 months later. I didn't get the chance to install it until then.

            Great item!

            Bought this item with the exedy clutch. Paired it up with mchleod flywheel. Only problem was it does not fit 18-19 gt. I swapped out my 18 tranny for a 17 gt manual do to 18 transmission problems on 2018 gt. Item holds up good power and will recommend if pushing serious whp.

            Hand crafted by GOD himself

            Well well well, let me tell you guys. I had 2 McLeod TOB's leak brake fluid from the slave within an hour after installed on my car. I PULLED THE TRANNY 3 TIMES IN 2 WEEKS! I thought i needed to use that TOB since i was running the McLeod RST clutch and flywheel, well then I saw people doing good with that same clutch and this TOB and i figured id give it a shot. Its now been through 2 track days, multiple canyon runs, and had absolutely 0 problems. I love it and would tell you guys not too look anywhere else if you need to step up your throwout bearing game. And don't listen to the people saying its the same as the oem part, this one is designed different to be more durable.

            Factory replacement...

            As others have said, this is exactly the same as the OEM cylinder which catastrophically failed in my 2015. I hope this replacement does not have a similar fate. Simple pre-bleed, install and system bleed. Just use a Vacuum pump on the reservoir.

            Not oem quality

            Not as nice as original, looks and feels cheap, oem is more money but worth it. Exedy is a great brand and have never had a problem with there products until I received product. Am and exedy provided best possible customer service and could not be happier after receiving defected part. Thanks am still best customer service I think.

            It's an OEM No Improvements

            I have to say the videos on AM touted this as an upgrade to the factory unit but it is (as others have found out) the exact same unit. Not just similar but the exact same part numbers, everything there is nothing improved on this from the factory design. Sadly many have reported issues with them. I hope that is not the case for me. You can purchase these from other locations for less but I would recommend just going for the McLeod unit. I know I wish I had known that. Otherwise the unit while costing more than the McLeod seems to be at least an OEM Replacement. Hopefully it holds up, but it is not by any means better than OEM as claimed in the videos.

Got parts in Monday everything look good but the boot on the Exedy Hydraulic Throwout Bearing/Slave Cylinder had a split in it . I have email the support 3 times and got ticket # but no respones on sending me a replacement . I purchase this for American Muscle so they need to send a replacement.
