Our integrated clutch and brake pedal assembly is the key to getting a manual transmission up and running in your 1991 – 1996 GM B-Body. That’s right, all you Impala SS, 9C1, station wagon, and Fleetwood D-Body fans – putting a manual transmission in your car is easier than you dreamed. Along with our transmission crossmember, sold separately or as a complete package, we can get you up and running with a Tremec T56 6 speed manual transmission, offering every part as well as money-saving packages. We offer installation at our shop in Sterling, Virginia, or we can ship your parts anywhere in the world.
Our second-generation pedal assembly features improved fastener access and serviceability. It is designed to fit perfectly, replacing your factory brake pedal, and has been torture tested on the track to ensure that it will take a beating with no fuss and no maintenance.

Can you see us blushing? Come on by for a test drive and see if you agree.
We proudly design and manufacture our parts in the USA, and we build ’em for serious enthusiasts who enjoy the details that make the difference.
To make each pedal assembly, we TIG weld laser cut steel right here in our fabrication shop using fixtures we made just for the job so that each one is a perfect fit. The pedal arms are made from A656 high strength steel for superior strength and durability. Our pedals are compatible with OEM GM electrical sensors (available separately) and universal fit master cylinders from Wilwood (yes, these are available separately as well).
The clutch and brake pedal arms are perfectly aligned with each other for a clean-looking installation. Pedal spacing is 5.25″ center-to-center, the similar to the late model F-Body. Your factory brake master cylinder pushrod hooks up to our brake pedal arm in the exact same location – the only thing we change about the brake pedal geometry, aside from the narrower pad, is locating the pedal pad in just the right location, relative to the accelerator, for heel-and-toe downshifting.
Our pedal is designed for hydraulic clutch systems and is compatible with just about any manual transmission. Whether you’re running the stock engine or an LS engine our pedals will work great. We use Wilwood master cylinders, available in six different bore sizes. If you’re using a hydraulic throwout bearing the 3/4″ bore is likely best, and if you’re using an LT1 style T56 with a pull clutch and external slave cylinder the 7/8″ bore is best. Contact us for help in selecting the perfect match for your setup. Different hydraulic setups may require more or less clutch pedal travel, so we have designed in an adjustable clutch pedal stop. Our instructions detail how to set this.
As part of our final assembly, we verify that each pedal arm rotates freely, yet doesn’t rock side-to-side. We press a pair of Oilite oil impregnated bronze bushings into each pedal arm, and the bushings rotate on a 5/8″ diameter Grade 8 high strength steel shoulder bolt. Between the bushings and the pedal bracket we use Delrin (acetal resin) washers to minimize rotating friction. Together, these parts ensure a long and maintenance-free life with smooth operation throughout.
Our pedal assembly contains provisions for four electric connections, all OEM GM spec and available separately, or already wired up in your car:
1 – Brake lights (reuse stock wiring)
2 – Cruise control interrupt, based on brake pedal application (reuse stock wiring)
3 – Cruise control interrupt, based on clutch pedal application (available separately)
4 – Neutral safety switch, preventing the car from starting unless the clutch pedal is depressed (available separately)
To install our pedals you’ll need to drill several holes in your firewall, and we include a cutting template to make the job easy. You’ll need a 2″ hole saw, a 1.5″ hole saw, and a 7/64″ drill bit (available separately).
The holes are to allow the clutch master cylinder to pass through the firewall and to install the included rubber seal. This installation method allows us to keep both the inlet and outlet for the clutch master cylinder on the engine side of the firewall – in other words, the juice isn’t on the carpeted side of the firewall. We include a rubber seal that bolts to your firewall, sealing the passenger cabin from the smells and moisture swirling around the engine side of the firewall.
To mount your clutch fluid reservoir under your hood we include a bracket that installs with no drilling and which perfectly positions a Wilwood small reservoir (included with the master cylinder) next to your brake master cylinder. Included with this bracket are stainless steel socket bolts and washers, which thread into nuts that are welded to the bracket. Solid.
All of our parts are powder coated in gloss black. Custom colors are available for an extra charge, starting at $25 – contact us for details.
Each pedal assembly is numbered, and a billet aluminum shift knob engraved with the number is included. Black knobs are standard, and 6 different anodized colors are available for an additional $20. Matching numbered LT1 throttle body plates with “6 Speed” engraved are available separately.
