    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. The 2005-2014 manual V8 Mustangs came factory equipped with a plastic clutch fluid line. This plastic line is fine for normal daily driving, but it can split or fail under the high heat and additional pressure caused by aggressive street or road race driving. So, replace that weak stock plastic line with a High Performance Braided Stainless Steel Hydraulic Clutch Line from McLeod for peace of mind, increased fluid capacity and much improved clutch pedal feel.

    Quality Construction. McLeod manufactures their hydraulic high flow Clutch Line from Teflon-lined braided stainless steel for durability and long life. The inner Teflon hose resist expansion under pressure while the braided stainless steel covering provides additional reinforcement against expansion as well as protection from abrasion and road debris. Measuring 36" in length, McLeod Hydraulic Clutch Line includes two AN-4 male plug-in fittings.

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

      Perfect

      Great Upgrade from the factory plastic line. It improves clutch feel and helps give smoother shifts while able to withstand the heat from the engine. I also flushed the DOT3 and replaced with DOT4 and it made a huge difference. Definitely recommend this simple mod.

      So far it's been great.

      Purchased this set up after reading reviews and comments from other GT500 owners and am very happy so far. Pedal pressure is slightly less than factory but has way more travel for easier engage/disengagement which increases drivability. I no longer have chatter, noise and grab. Durability is what I am watching for now and I am confident this clutch will last much longer than 17,000 miles my factory clutch did. I drive my Shelby as a fast normal car but do take it to the track or drive it hard semi regularly.

      McLeod Hydraulic Clutch Line Upgrade (05-14 V8)

      Works as advertised, didn't help my notchy shifting into 2nd gear, but was worth a try. Bleeding the system requires a vacuum pump, not in my tool box, but the mechanic had one...

      Product does exactly what it says it does just be careful when you install it pay attention to what you're doing don't lose the clips when you pull out the stock clutch fluid line should only take about a half hour to an hour to install using floor jacks

      Worth the money,Quality line and fittings !

      Awesome product however I wouldn’t mind paying a little extra for at least one replacement retainer clip. Those things are evil and will just disappear if you are not careful(almost lost one). Install was easy, hardest part is bleeding the air out(I’m writing this review as I pump my life away on the clutch). Haven’t taken it on the road but the clutch pedal already feels a lot less “spongy” and more solid I’m pretty sure it will help on the notchiness ? I was feeling when shifting.

      Shifts a little better

      Shifts a little better than it did, still doesn't like wot 6.5krpm 1-2 and 2-3 but it does better than before. Clutch doesn't feel all wierd like it did. Be careful though I pulled on the line a little bit and my slave started leaking.

      If your replacing the clutch and throw out bearing this is something you want to replace as well. It's worth the extra money. Little hard to install because of the limited space but definitely worth it.

      Mcleod clutch line

      Much better than the factory fixed piece. Easy to maneuver between engine and frame. Looks nice, if you ever look back that far. Easier to put on to the transmission. The two clips that hold them in place are a pain in the chilli ring to get out.

      Clutch Line

      Great Product... Install was not to bad... They need to add clips with this package incase you lose one of your stock ones... those little retainer clips were a nightmare to get back on the transmission end of the new line... Anyway I believe it solved my issue... Getting better shifts again...

      Quality product,easy install! Much better than the OEM plastic line. Although you should market this product for the V6 as well instead of saying it only fits the V8. That's what I installed it on and fitment was flawless.

      Improved Drag Race shifts

      Pretty simple install... on a lift! Most of all was looking to eliminate the regular 1-2 missed shift while drag racing, and thanks to higher disengagement point of pedal after this, was much improved!
