7/8 Bore master cylinder - almost anything with rear drum. 24mm Bore master cylinder - almost anything with a GM or Ford factory rear disc calipers and some aftermarket 1-3/8 diameter 4 piston calipers. 1.0" Bore master cylinder - Any rear disc conversion with a GM metric caliper (no built in parking brake) or aftermarket 4 piston calipers with 1.75" pistons. NOTE: The KIT comes standard with a 7/8" bore master cylinder, but a 24mm or 1.0" bore master cylinder can be substituted at NO CHARGE after you order.6 to 1 Pedal Ratio - Creates less effort by the driver to stop the car and multiplies the fluid pressure in the system. No other manual brake conversion kit can match this.
Dual Bolt Pattern on the Adapter Plate - Use GM, Ford, or MOPAR master cylinders. No other manual brake conversion kit can do this. Better pedal modulation for consistent braking - No low engine vacuum issues to worry about.
Firewall Bracing Plate - 1/2 Thick Plate Reduces Firewall Flex. Other manual brake conversions charge you extra for this. The adapter plate is CNC machined by a water jet from rigid 1/8 thick aluminum with dimensions that covers up the hole in the firewall after you remove the power booster.
This modification will clean up your firewall by getting rid of the big, bulky power booster. Racers do this swap when their engine does not make enough vacuum to operate the power booster, to shed a few pound to make their car lighter, or to clean up the engine bay.The pro-touring fans use manual brakes to get a better feel of their brakes when heading into a corner at a high rate of speed. The adapter plate can also be polished up to a mirror finish if needed. A 1/2 to 9/16 inch hole will have to be added to your firewall between the two upper holes that the vacuum booster bolted to. The extra hole in the firewall allows for the high 6 to 1 pedal ratio. Higher Pedal Ratio = Less Leg Effort = Increased Braking Performance. Smaller Bore Master Cylinder = Higher Fluid Pressure = Increased Braking Performance. Kit comes with a gasket matched to the adapter plate to seal the passenger compartment from the engine bay. The other kits do not offer a gasket in their kits. Kit comes with a dual bolt pattern to run different master cylinders from GM, Ford, and MOPAR. The other manual brakes kits do not have this feature. Kit comes with a under dash brace that is included in the kit and reduces firewall flex dramatically. The other manual brake kits offer this at an additional cost. Kit comes with the correct size master cylinder that is matched to the size of the front and rear brakes. The other manual brake kits offer a larger bore master cylinder which generates less brake line pressure. Parts to Enhance Your Manua l Brakes on Y our F-body. NON Low Drag Caliper (see below) - These type of calipers are manditory to work with the supplied 7/8 bore master cylinder. New Rubber or Stainless Steel Flexible Brakes Lines (front and rear) - Old rubber lines will "balloon" causing loss of pressure within the braking system.
LOW drag calipers came on all third generation F-bodies with the standard (NON 1LE) front brake systems. Leg Force Pedal Ratio Master Cylinder Bore Caliper Piston Size Clamping Force. 100 5.5 to 1 1-1/32 (1.03") 2.5" 3240 lb of clamping force with other manual brake systems. There is 34% more clamping force than any other other manual brake systems. I will be happy to answer any of your questions.
