Clutch Delay Valve....nyone deleted it on GK5?

Have read posts in the past, seems to be no easy delete of the CDV on GK5s......that is one thing I can't stand, but will live with, I suppose....at least until my engine/powertrain warranty is expired. And what is the true purpose? To make it "easier" for newbs to drive a manual? I have no idea. Just venting on a hot day

reduce shock to the drive train. You can get the delete UUC CDV/Clutch Delay Valve or just drill through the valve.

Since I have very short legs, I have on occasion found the delay inconvenient, but there are reasons.

Safety prevents accidental lurch starts while in gear
Anti theft few and fewer young punks know how to drive a manual shift (6 speed WTF)

It's in the list of next things to do for me. I plan on using a EM2 clutch master to eliminate the extra chamber (delay valve) found on modern year manual models..
The parts I plan to use are
46920-S5A-G07
and a stainless steel clutch line. I don't think there is a valve in the slave, unlike recent years Civics do.
