    This "extra pressure" argument is completely wacked. The reason they 
    both go together is that they're about the same age, and tend to wear 
    at the same rate. Also, the wear particles (rubber bits) from the 
    failed component rarely get flushed properly and this contributes to 
    the failure of the other component.

    The pressure in the hydraulic line is (almost) entirely related to the 
    strength of the springs in the clutch. One slave or master vs another 
    is not going to generate more or  less pressure.
