    Im getting a spec stage 3 clutch and it comes with a balanced g60 flywheel. So the master cylinder would be worth changing? What about the slave?

    WHy does he need to change the master cylinder?

    If i was doing a new clutch on an ibiza i would do vr6 clutch, g60 flywheel, flywheel bolts and release bearing. I'd also bleed the clutch as its easy to do.

    I should be getting a spec stage 3 clutch with a g60 SMFW soon for a very good pirce, otherwise i would have gone v6/g60. So theres no point doing the master cylinder? Think is about 6months afo i had a sticky clutch pedal, turned out the garage had left the bleed nipple off the master cylinder, but im guessing its still on the original cylinder.
