excessive load on a stock part?

You WILL crack the firewall in due time too.

Best to source a heavy duty clutch (clamping force) with a very low pedal pressure increase.

Try using genuine cables too. the cheap ones are pretty s**t.

ahhh a heavy duty clutch will just put more pressure on s**t, and crack the firewall sooner..

I went out and got a plate made for firewall re-inforcement, there is a thread around here on it

Make sure you buy a new clevis and bushes when you get the cable, most people never bother.
They are not expensive either. :)
