What slave cylinder does the 5 speed use?

did you buy a kit? The ONLY thing I don't really like from Aardvark is the longer flex hose. It's the strangest thing and it fits really poorly IMO. I probably rigged it up differently than it was designed, and being the cocky SOB that I am I lost Dave's instructions but probably wouldn't have read them anyway.

I ended up using the stock length solid slave line, running it to the stock bracket, and then adapting the "longer" slave line to that. The only problem is I litterally had to put a loop (like when you coil a garden hose or something) in the flex line and it's now laying on the top of the clutch master. I had to wrap it with fuel/radiator hose to protect it and it just looks wrong. Wish I had a pic but can you share what you're doing & what you plan to do? This is an area which I will need to address shortly. Perhaps look at using the stock E21 solid and flex line? that's what I'll look into next. (the problem is joining them - you'll need a female/female metric connector)

'cause it's a real PITA to replace with the tranny in place, and the price was right. Fit perfectly too...

PSloan: If you want, I have an "extra" 5-speed slave cylinder you can have for free. I bought it with the Aardvarc kit, but followed some direction which (in retrospect) was bad. I put the slave cylinder on and attempted to bleed the line prior to installing on the tranny. Ultimately the push-rod (probably the wrong term) ended up protruding too far out of the slave. Apparently if you're careful it can be pushed back in, but I was so impatient I just went out and bought another one. So, I have a new one that just needs a little TLC (from what I'm told.) If you want it, just drop me an email at tomandanja AT yahoo DOT com. I'll be out of the country for a few more days so the earliest I could send it your way is early next week.
