The new system features an integrated under-dash hydraulic master cylinder and a bolt-in clutch pedal. The included clutch pedal allows for easy conversion to hydraulic, or an automatic car to manual. The kit is easy to use and requires no complicated adjustments or junkyard searches for hard-to-find pedals. Everything is bolted-in followed by bleeding the slave cylinder.

The new HYDRAMAX kit includes a master cylinder, clutch pedal, lines, and a billet HYDRAMAX hydraulic slave cylinder bearing. The conical slave cylinder is pre-bled, dual-sealed and comes with shims to adjust the distance to the clutch fingers for any type of clutch set-up. Included is a billet reservoir to finish out the installation. These kits work with any TREMEC transmission including the T5, TKO/TKX, and T-56 Magnum 6-speed. The hydraulic pedal is also available for purchase separately, with no hydraulic slave.

American Powertrain’s patented HYDRAMAX hydraulic systems and components are the most advanced systems on the market today. This system includes every fitting, line and part needed for a complete, worry-free installation including detailed instructions, video guides and tech support.
