Default Brake master

After talking with a few people I've realized I should delete the brake booster and replace the master on my '02 Camaro. I've read up on it and it seems like the thing to do but I'm overwhelmed with all the options of what master to replace it with. Wilwood has many options. I will be at PRI and hope to ask them them there and see what else might be out there, but some real world experience with what some of you have done would help.

I use twin Wilwood masters, with a balance bar. I also have a Wilwood variable restrictor in the line running to the back calipers. All of it is Wilwood. The twin masters have remote reservoirs and individual pressure gauges, so I can set the pressures accurately. All of it fits inside the car and all the brake stuff in the engine compartment is gone. If you are at PRI, ask for Carl Bush and tell him I sent you. He may not have all my details with him, but he knows my set up.

I'm the exact same as Jim. One thing to research is the right size master cylinder for the front and the rear. If you plan on keeping your dash it might be easier to go with a setup similar to Andy S.

Wow, that is detail. It'll take awhile to get all those measurements.

Carl Bush is the man.

See Lane Automotive for Wilwood stuff.
