    LS7 Clutch swap, how do you have your slave line routed?

    Question for the LS7 swap guys, how is your line routed? I'm getting a noise under mid to high acceleration that sounds like something making contact right at the tranny tunnel. Looking at the way the line was routed by the installer it doesn't have much clearance. The noise doesn't appear to be the remote bleeder.

    You'll have to get under there and bend the line so there is more clearance.

    Correction, the installer will have to get under there and bend the line. I didn't know if there was a specific way that the line needed to be run in order to avoid contact with the tunnel. Sounds like you just bend it until it fits.

    Also, make sure it doesn't go near the exhaust. I had to zip tie mine.

    I bent mine but also used a carbide cutting tip to round any sharp edges around the small hole where the remote line sneaks out....
