Separate Clutch Reservoir

Found this picture

Attachment 399

Looks like it may have it's own separate clutch reservoir?

seems like it from that picture, which is great. No more needing to install one right after buying a performance car that should have had it to begin with. (still need to actually put one on my Camaro)

I think the C5 and C6, GTO had a shared clutch/brake reservoir, the Camaro has it too.

I don't know of any cars that have had separate ones.

Money talks, saving $20 each over a million cars goes a long way.

Is there any huge cons leaving it stock but changing the fluid when recommended?

From what I've read no, most people do it precautionary or to try and alleviate any rough shifting. The Tremec 6060 in the Camaro is pretty notchy on the 1-2 shift so putting in a dedicated clutch fluid can help a bit. I follow the whole if it's not broken don't fix it for the most part and I haven't done it on my Camaro and don't plan on it.

Just curious do you do any hard driving on your car? Common racing or race type use, that would persuade you to do two reservoir's?

Not yet, it was my first manual so before jumping into that I want to make sure I'm completely confident in shifting. When I do if I notice a difference it may be something I do. I do drive spiritedly though, and that's all I'll admit to haha.

Haha, not yet. I'm looking to getting into autocross when I feel ready or jumping into the deep end. First manual so in between if I'm comfortable enough to push it to the limits. Definitely at some point in the future though.
