2006 GTO Clutch advice needed

A few weeks ago swapped out the clutch. Had a Spec stage 3 in the car, put Monster stage 3 clutch into the car. Transmission is a T56, 12" disk and matching pressure plate.

Long story short after multiple attempts to bleed the clutch we're still having the same issue. clutch engagement is perfect until the DOT 4 fluid gets hot, then its engaging about 1/4 inch off the floor and total clutch is about 1/2 inch.

What would everyone think is the problem, we replaced the slave cylinder with a monster unit also when the trans was out. Flywheel is Billet steel 28lb monster unit also.

Out of any ideas anyone have anything to throw out there to look into?

new slave and no matching master to go with it? is the monster slave the same as like an oem replacement?
from what you mentioned, id say the master is not only bleeding off pressure from what id say is wear and the heat just expands the masters cylinder and causes bleed off. also, those things are a PIB to get all the air out. if the car is level, i recommend raising the rear up on an incline as those slaves seem to like to keep an air pocket at the front and is a real bear to get all the air out. l
having the rear elevated seems to work for me on getting all the air out.
hope this helps
