    you will need tranny, flywheel, clutch, slave cylinder, master cylinder, pedals, new ecu (i think you might be able to use you old one if you cut some wires), and the fluid lines and misc bolts. anybody help me out if i missed anything.

    The clutch master cylinder is where the clutch fluid is contained (in a hydraulic clutch setup) and distributed from, and the slave cylinder is at the end of the high-pressure high and is what actuates the throwout bearing inside the tranny. They don't exist in a cable clutch setup.

    Someone please elaborate or correct me if I'm wrong.
