GM's reliability is not much different than other American car makers. The GTO is a pretty damn reliable car. My first slave lasted me around 70k, and im at 86k now with no problems on the one that came with my Monster.The more I read about this car the more I question gm quality. Are u telling me I'm gonna have to pull the trans out of this thing every 30k to swap slaves lol that's horrible reliability.
I just hit 30k miles and I can definatly tell it doesn't shift as smoothly as when I got it.
What are the signs of a failing slave ? I'm debating on doing an ls7 unit or monster stage 1 as my power goals are moddest. I don't plan on ever going over 400-430 rwhp.
Seems to me ls7 after you buy a slave really isn't that much cheaper then a monster kit that comes with a slave.
Thoughts and recomendations? I figured if I need a slave I might as well do a clutch and remote bleeder while I'm in there
Go with a monster clutch. I have the stage 2, and know several people that have various staged Monsters that wont buy any thing but. With how old your car is, and the amount of miles you have on it, I would recommend changing your fluid. That may help the way it shifts. Change trans and clutch fluid. Buy you a Monster, and you can take care of it all at once.
