He put a nut and bolt to lock down the plate to motor and issue resolved. Not sure if the others had the same issue.

Hey Adamky can you share with us your how you set your Dakota converter and your settings if you don't mind?
Sorry, I just now saw this. I'm sure you've figured it out by now, but if not, see the bottom of this post: viewtopic.php?p=522799#p522799

Just some feedback on the Z32 swap. Don't use any other shifter except stock or a Z1 short shifter. NIGHT & DAY difference on Z1 and Mazworx or ebay short shifters. They are straight up terrible. Z1 well worth the money and doesn't rattle. As for using the Dakota Digital SGi-5 you want to use Output 1 and when calibrating the speedometer you must hold the Down or Up button down while driving and you can watch you speedometer need slow down or speed up to get your speedo calibrated. Also there are two different Red/Yellow wires. You want to use the wire that is grounded as that is the output from the sensor before it goes through the cluster. Using Output 3 only got me within 6-7mph but couldn't get any closer. Output 1 is the actual output that you can fully calibrate. The others have a fixed output and it will get you close but to be exact just use 1 and be good.

I hate to bring back an old thread however I am having the same problem as BoBack with my Z32 Mazworx swap. My clutch pedal does the EXACT same thing as BoBack. I'm starting to wonder if the Z32 tranny swap has a clearance issue BUT I'm not sure about that because If I turn the boost down to 14psi I do not have this problem. Its definitely a hp issue which equates to more heat being produced then you throw in the variable of longer gears compared to stock tranny. Anyone figure out a fix?

Do you have the trans-to-engine brackets installed?

Yes, both of them. Just had to drill new hole on driver side bracket. Passenger side bolted right up.

I'm running the Xcessive oil pan which prevents me from using the brackets. I was thinking of cutting off that part of the pan that bolts to the trans and putting the brackets back on, but clearly that isn't the issue, so I guess I won't bother.

Reading back through the thread, you weren't having this issue before. Has anything changed in the drivetrain between now and then? Or is power the only difference?

It's load problem. So gearing and horse power are the contributing factors. I've thought about the problem and working on a solution when I get a chance. I will report back when get everything fabricated together

I'm curious what your idea is..?

I know this is an old post but this is the most appropriate place to post the clutch hydraulic problems for high powered KA's. So here is my fix to the clutch pedal problem.

Hmmm...good idea. I go through quite a bit of slave cylinders. Wonder if this will fix my issue.

So the issue is with the pedal itself? Where did you get the spring?

How many have you gone through? I've been on the same Nismo slave cylinder for over 6 years now.

About one every 1.5 years. Cheapo $16 autozone reman ****. I wanted to get a nismo one but the price spiked up so bad, But if lasted 6byears, worth the investment.

I just run factory Nissan Slave. I have seen too many people with trouble out of the cheapo's. I refuse to spend the money they want for a Nismo. From what I can tell the problem is hydraulic. As stated before at high power levels (Above) in 3rd and 4th gear on a Z32 tranny these are long pulls. The pedal will start dropping to the floor just as Boback described. At first I thought it was a unique problem go him. Then I did my upgrades and making more power and experienced the exact same problem. What I did figure out was if I kept my foot under the pedal not allow it to fall during these pulls my clutch worked perfectly. If I didn't then you have to pump the pedal to get the pedal to come back to normal position.This kit is actually designed for the Vette clutch pedal. I had to add 1/4" thick piece of metal plate (its very small) to use as a shim to place between the "U" that goes around the pedal and the set screw. Also I drilled a small hole on the edge where the spring is hooking through in the picture under the dash. I needed a 90* drill to pull this off at least for me. Its very simple and easy. With this installed there is still smooth engagement and disengagement. The only difference is the pedal a little more firm.
Here is the link where I bought the kit http://www.lingenfelter.com/product/L36 ... 4i45zVZrIU
Like I said "You have to add a 1/4" thick shim to work on the 240 clutch perfectly the keep the "U" square. The U is just too big to use without it and expect it to work perfectly in my opinion.

At what power level did it start to happen, approximately? You made 530 or so whp for years without issue, correct?
Excellent work figuring this out! I would have never guessed that this was the fix.

Correct. At 530 WHP never experienced the issue. At 599whp on the street I had the problem. I also believe the longer gearing of the z32 Tranny is a contributing factor along with my 3.69 diff.

Are you running a stock diff with 4.08 ring and pinion? Output 3 was almost dead on for me.

Ok, just checking. The output wire came out when I was putting the dash back together today, so I was trying to figure out how I had it setup before. I didn't realize that output 1 was the only one that could be adjusted properly.

I had issues with my pedal sinking in on me. For some weird reason i completely removed the larger hard line that goes to the slave cylinder from the small hard line from the clutch master cylinder and just hooked up the slave dirrect to the smaller hard line and i was able to fix my issue. My car was automatic so i dont know if that helps.
