how to avoid buying a EM1 CMC (stock CMC fix video inside)

i have not been here for a long time but this issue has been bothering me with numerous morons telling me they all need EM1 cmc's to avoid lock out on high rpm shifts. i finally just made a video on how to properly adjust both your pedal and the factory CMC.

keep in mind that i have never tired the EM1 CMC on my car since i have never had a reason to try it. i have installed them and uninstalled them on numerous cars because people are hardheaded and don't like to listen.

please forgive me for the iphone video





****updated parts****



new pivot arm TOP old pivot arm BOTTOM




new plunger/piston LEFT old piston RIGHT

For now it worked for me.

I can shift properly from 1 to 2 after doing what this video says.

Great tip !!

i highly recommend getting the updated part number but if your absolutely stuck with the EM1 which is the case with most people that have converted i have made a video on how to adjust that one.

This took me 6 minutes to do in the car. Works well DD but haven't tried high rpm yet.

Just went out and did this. I had played with the adjustment before, but not the cruise sensor part.

Made a world of difference.

THANK YOU EMAN

will this be the same and help with the original parts in my 07? I'm guessing the clutch engagement will feel different after this..
