Nope, too high. Shop in OC can do it for $70 under an hour with bleeding. For $175 you should get an oil change and a car wash too.

You dont even need a modified cdv valve, just get the thing removed. Cost me $20 at Wheel Supply in Walnut. Worth the drive, the owner is a e30 m3 guy.

If you want to DIY it, you need a floor jack, jack stands, and a 8MM and 10MM nut drivers just to get the panel off that covers the area of the transmission where the slave cylinder is. If you have all those tools and are worried about bleeding the line, then buy a line clamping plyers and just remove the CDV. There is no need to put a fake one back in; the supply hose has enough slack to fit directly on the slave cylinder.

no, like efthreeoh said, the line was clamped tight so bleeding was not necessary. been a year since it was done, no issues whatsoever.

Okay guys CDV delete is done however they told me that theres no need of bleeding the clutch. They said most of the time bleeding is not needed and it is not a problem to drive like that. :

Anyone can confirm that this is ok?

I don't see how you could remove it or swap it out without getting air in it?
