Clutch and Slave cyl. Replacements.. Suggestions?

I am having a new slave cylinder put in my ls1 GTO M6. While the trans. is dropped I am going to have a new clutch put in as well. My car is mainly a weekend car, nearly stock, and does not see the track very often. Any suggestions for the clutch as far as brands/models go? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a 05 GTO and i just bought it. All of a sudden my clutch got weak and i had to add fluid. Now i have no clutch and no fluid in resevoir. The bottom of bell housing is wet. I am getting a new slave cylinder, i can get it from chevrolet for $280 but i found a website clutchcityonline.com and they offer a oem slave cylinder for on $98. Should i go with this, can i trust it?

For "average" muscle car use the LS7 is a good buy. If you go higher HP or drag the car a Monster Level 3 is the way to go. Myself, I've had the stock obviously, a Textralia, Spec 3+ and this Diamond 3 which was an earlier name for the Monster. By far the biggest disappointment was the Spec 3+. After 8,000 miles I threw it away. It couldn't hold over 400 RWHP, chattered and had "shim in, shim out" issues. After several years of different clutches having fanbois that later hated them the Monster has stood the test of time. Anyone remember the Bird of Prey clutch? For one summer it was all the rage and then reality hit.

Oh, and the above is correct. Do a remote bleeder and use a F-body slave with the fitting switched over. The slaves are all the same with the fitting different. You can get one for $80
