Default GoodRidge Stainless Clutch Line and Clutch Delay Valve Delete

Finally got my GoodRidge Stainless Clutch Line installed in my 2012 STI today. Removal of the old line is a PAIN! Do not attempt to remove the hard line from the flexible line without a 10mm flare wrench. It isn't going to happen. I started on this thing last night and didn't have one, and I was cranking on the regular wrench and just knew it was a bad idea to go any further. I hated leaving everything apart overnight, but that is what I had to do. While I had the whole thing apart, I went ahead and did the clutch delay valve (CDV) delete. It was a pain, but I was able to do it without removing the starter. I actually bolted it to my work bench to get the 24mm bolt out. Reassembled the clutch slave cylinder, installed (threw a little grease on the contact point for good measure). Put the new line in, and then used a self-bleeder from Pep Boys. The hardest part was getting the line on the bleeder valve nipple. Bled the system with some DOT 4 clutch fluid, and buttoned everything back up. I re-used the old clutch line clip on the new line. It snapped in tighter than the one from GoodRidge. Then I wrestled the intercooler back on and threw the crossbar from the SPT Strut Brace back in, and I was ready to roll.

Also, recommend you have a 17mm (I think that is what it was) flare wrench to hold on to the new line while you tighted it to the hard line.

Results? Very impressed. Clutch engagement and disengagement is definitely better. Engagement is the most noticable. I feel like I can drive a clutch again! That CDV sucked! This is a must-do for anyone that does not like the feel of their clutch.
