    Question! AR CDV

    As we all know AR makes amazing products. My question is! Has anybody used an AR modified CDV? I just order mine and would like to know how other users like this product? And also if the diferences between the modified one and the stock is worth the time to change it.
    Thank u!

    I just tried to check it out on their site but its down.

    A CDV is hard to screw up, I would be very confident in it.

    As far as I know all of the 'not drilled' CDV's are just stock ones that a piece is pushed out of. You can do it yourself for free with a smalled allen key or other wire type tool. Saves the $20

    Exactly and good point, we have a CDV DIY if you want to look at it.

    My question is, does it really make a noticeable difference?

    Most would say so, popular mod for that reason.

    It does. Ive done so many of them. The clutch pedal gets heavier and easier to modulate.

    +1. It's a very noticeable difference. If your clutch modulation (ability to smoothly engage/disengage the clutch) has bothered you, you will feel the difference like night and day. I do also believe as there is still a change in diameter there that when you completely remove the CDV it will finally be perfect. Personally I'm waiting until I don't care about my warranty anymore just because I'm paranoid (38k and counting).

    On a side note, although it's definitely a DIY if you haven't messed with brakes or the clutch before it can be a tense experience. Having a clutch that does nothing is and falls to the floor on a brand new car is a crazy feeling lol. From my experience I needed to add more brake fluid to the reservoir before pumping would do anything.

    Some guys claim to do it in 20 minutes. I don't think it should take you any more than an hour. If it does, well, open some beers and call a friend to help.

    I used a lift but had no internet/guide so I stumbled my way around and it took us about 20-30 min. The longest part is going to be getting the clutch back to 100% (or functioning as was my case).

    If you used a clamp and held the pedal down, would it be possible to not let any air in while doing this? I would end up bleeding anyway I guess. I know it is super easy, but are there any good writeups?

    It is definitely possible to do and a lot of people don't have a problem. I would just grab a bottle of brake fluid just in case though.

    On a side note I just put together a lot of CDV information and DIY here. Check it out and let me know if it helps

    Some people are telling to delete the CDV all together. A cdv take a 4mm hole and turns into 1mm. A modified CDV has a 4mm hole all the way thru. So is the same as deleting it.

    I don't have measurements in front of me but the consensus is that the CDV itself is smaller than the lines it connects into and removing it all together is the best option. Leaving it there, modified, is just for warranty work.
