    Well, if you happen to swap the OEM-tuned ECM in there anyway, report back with results please. Be curious to see if any issues arise.

    Re: Installed LS7 Clutch, Flywheel, etc. - rock HARD pedal...

    I just spent some time on LS! tech and "Holy Crap" is all I can say about the T-O spacer issue. Did you go with the New T-O for any particular reason?. Everything I have read on THIS forum is that We DO need to use the spacer if using the OE V-1 T-O. Please someone chime in here. I just got a new ,Yes NEW, LS7 C&F for 100 bucks and want to put this in soon. I also have seen the bleeders in different lengths and this is the first thread where someone said We don't need them. Perhaps a short one is the way to go.
    Thanks Guys

    I think the spacer is needed if you use the old slave instead of a new LS7 slave. I used the LS7 slave and didn't need a spacer.

    The spacer is only necessary if you try to use an ls2/6 slave cylinder with the ls7 clutch package. From all that I read, you don't want to bother screwing around with the spacer and ls2/6 slave. You're going to be in there anyway, so replacing the slave would make sense, and the ls7 slave is only $90 from O'reilly.

    Thanx Wes, I am reusing the LS2 T-O as I found a screaming deal on a Katech Spacer (Thanx Clay).
    No offense intended but You couldn't pay me to use an O'Reilly piece or any other aftermarket T-O.

    LS7 clutch setup with LS7 slave should not need a spacer, but always measure to be sure. And the LS7 slave ordered from Oreilly auto is from the same manufacturer as OEM.
