also i forgot to mention i changed to an r34 master

i imagine it would be helpful for anyone else looking at this thread that you kinda explain what youre getting at a bit better as its not very obvious, hell my answers are based on guessing what your problem is based on my own experience of putting a 25t into an s13

you havent really given any info as to what car what engine whether youre doing a conversion or whether its just started happening randomly, as much info as possible is a really good idea

ahh right yea so same issue i had with the s13, some of what i dids a bit extreme but it had other benefits

- Lowered engine 30mm
- used 34 master cylinder (or apparently terrano, never heard that one but sweet thatd be pro)
- changed intake to front facing (which it appears youve already done)

also about a year after i went through all of the above i discovered a p11 primera sitting in a workshop somewhere that has a ridiculously short throw master and external reservoir, im pretty sure that will also solve all the problems

How much is it hitting by? I cut and welded a plate over the end of the plenum on a mates car, then on mine I used a different clutch cylinder and slotted the holes.
