Put under 13k miles on this and when i first take off clutch slips n i barely push down gas. All the way up the gears it gets worse..after driving few minutes gears catch on a tad bit better and slips less. Any siggestions as to what i need to do. Certain part i jus need to replace? I dont get on it n drive normal n just tripped out how quick im starting to have issues with this kit with so little mileage

How's the clutch pedal feel ? Brake fluid level good ?
Any leaks. Up under the dash. Or out of the bell housing. I would try to bleed the slave cyl again. Just to make sure. Other then that it will have to come out for inspection.

If there are no leaks. Try rebleeding it. And then make the decision to pull the trans.

I have always driven stick. 45 years. Sounds like you are gettin fliud into clutch most likely oil.
IF it was the pedal, or the hydralic system, the clutch would not release.
The opposite of your problem. (the pedal to the floor would not be enough to release the clutch)
So the opposite is (sorry to say) always more serious.
It may be the release assy is failing, or some part of the clutch release broke insde, so it is blocking the full recontact of the clutch.
But the usual is the clutch plates are damaged by fluid (oil) leaking into them, and if it is real bad, means a LOT of oil is in there.
Sorry.
So IMO either a failed clutch release with some broken part messing up the reingagement, or a leak into the clutch plate.(could be from Tranny or engine)
This is just the opinion of a 62 year old lady, so your opinions and experience may vary. Actually hope I am wrong.

a. Main seal on the transmission is leaking
b. Slave clynder is leaking
c. Main rear seal of the engine is leaking (crankshaft seal)

In case you are pulling out the trans, change them all :)

Good Luck
