Porsche 996 / 997 Turbo BBi Autosport Clutch Slave Cylinder Conversion Upgrade Kit

$1,295.00

The factory power-assisted clutch system has always been the Achilles heel for the Porsche 996/997 Turbo. Utilizing the power steering system to help reduce the force needed to depress the clutch pedal, it is a flawed design that delivers a mushy pedal feel with poor feedback, and is highly prone to failure. The BBI system addresses both of those issues by eliminating the problematic factory power-assist system for improved reliability and pedal feedback.

Description

BBi Autosport is proud to announce their new Clutch Slave Cylinder Conversion Kit for the Porsche 996 and 997 Turbo. After successfully tested on both the streets and tracks for over a year, the Clutch Slave Cylinder Conversion is finally available. The factory power-assisted clutch system has always been the Achilles heel for the Porsche 996 Turbo. Utilizing the power steering system to help reduce the force needed to depress the clutch pedal, it is a flawed design that delivers a mushy pedal feel with poor feedback, and is highly prone to failure. This system addresses both of those issues by eliminating the problematic factory power-assist system for improved reliability and pedal feedback.

Unlike other kits, this system is designed be used with the OEM clutch master cylinder, hose, and spring pack. This eliminates the need for additional parts, making the kit a complete plug and play solution. The other kits on the market simply adapt factory 996 GT2 parts with aftermarket brackets and caps off the power steering pump with plugs. This proprietary design does not plug the power steering pump because the plugs can fail. Instead, the power steering fluid is routed through the unit to simulate the factory system. With the failure of the factory system inevitable, this is a must upgrade for the 996 and 997 Turbo to achieve the excellent pedal feedback and reliability similar to that of the Porsche 997 GT2 and GT3 without compromising drivability.

OEM PENTOSIN FLUID MUST BE FULLY FLUSHED OUT AND REPLACED WITH DOT4 BRAKE FLUID. SEALS WILL FAIL IF THIS PROCEDURE IS NOT COMPLETED
