Default clutch fluid reservoir spittin out clutch fluid?

Any ideas on why my car randomly spits out clutch fluid now? It will just randomly go from full to right below the fill line. Never spits everything out and causes air bubbles but having to refill it weekly definitely is not normal.

its an 05 6 speed with long tubes, 4.10 rear diff, vararam cold air, and a cam. possibly stage 2 clutch. it did not do this when i first got the car and just started a couple of months ago. Sometimes i drive it spirited, sometimes i drive casually.

The headers may cause the fluid to over heat and spit. How black is the fluid.

i used the ranger method to try and change some of it about a month ago, but its hard to say since i have to constantly add new fluid to it. I'd say its a medium brown.

Not a good idea filled to max full or slightly below. Keep fluid between Min and Max. Fluid expands when hot.

How tight does your cap feel? When my reservoir cap have little drag when tighten, I add an 1/32" thick EPDM rubber, cut to fit, in addition, to restore proper seal.

In addition, to keep fluid clear, I siphon, fill then drive. I prefer not to induce premature wear to seals on the system, by pumping clutch without car actually driven.
