I have been using these:
GM 24255748 (Clutch disk and PP)
LUK LFW191 (Flywheel)
I used the stock GXP slave + Monster release bearing support

The clutch disk and PP is what came in the Commodore VE II (2010+) and is the Holden official fix for the clutch pedal not coming back up. I had the TSB at some point, found it on some Commodore forums. That TSB was never published for US/Canada.
The flywheel is just some OE equivalent LS flywheel.

I have not changed the clutch fluid in 10000+ miles and about 2 years and the pedal has not stayed down once.
It's easy to drive and so far is still working well.
I'm on stock power levels though - a Roto-Fab and a Solo cat-back don't add much :)

I had the Monster LT1-S briefly, I didn't like it and sold it. The friction point was very narrow in my case and it was hard to take off smoothly. I was having other drivetrain issues at the time which I didn't realize yet so I don't broadcast my opinion much as it might not be very representative...
Well hopefully it performs closer to stock with respect to the friction point you described as I already ordered it... I did get an email from Monster stating they make these to order and quoted up to 10 days to ship which in my case isn't an issue since I'm not going to need it before then.

I'll post back once I get the car put back together (also doing cam and related items) but expect that will be a few months at the rate I go!

Thanks for that bit of info, I will be storing it away for future use. The clutch issue is something I would love to get fixed eventually. Being thrifty, I've been waiting for the factory clutch to wear out.

I have the Monster Tripple Disc and it drives like my daughters Mini. If you want to replace the pilot bearing, go to Advanced Auto and rent their pilot bearing removal kit. It worked for me.

Thanks, just got the clutch delivered yesterday, have a new slave cylinder from tick with the upgraded collar and speed bleeder, a set of shims and their measurement tool. I'm actually pulling the motor and having the bottom end refreshed. They will take care of the pilot bushing for me! Have almost everything under the hood removed, then on to the transmission. Was thinking of getting the MGW shifter but read some comments about cabin noise. No one has replied to my query regarding that, but have quite a bit of time before I get to putting the trans back in ;)

Did you measure and need to shim the slave?

I measured when I installed mine and it was dead on, didn't need any shims

The MGW shifter was changed after those cabin noise comments, that was many years ago. Cabin noise did not increase for me.

The yellow part on the left of the picture was redesigned. MGW also supplies RTV to be put in between that part and the mounting point on the body, and the current versions (shown) have more rubber than back then to also help with that.

If you want to keep the OEM shift knob, make sure to ask MGW for the G8 version when ordering. The Camaro OE knob is a different size.
If going with the MGW ball shifters it's not an issue.

Thanks for the updated info on the MGW shifter.
