90 Grand Prix Mclaren

Postby Z26_T » Mon Oct 31, 2016 10:53 am

So this isn't a Beretta.. but I know some of you have done some fairly heavy research into what Master cylinder should be used on our cars that have rear disc swaps. Seeing if anyone has a suggestion on what master/booster I could use on a 90' McLaren. My dad just had one donated to his shop. The brake system is all disassembled, which is why a previous student donated it.

Why not just use the OEM type master cylinder? What was changed with the brake system that you need something different?

The factory one for the TGP is fairly unobtainable if it has ABS. I'm sure someone has converted it to vacuum boost and no ABS.

Yeah, the OEM is very difficult to find and the system is already completely disassembled. I do plan on converting to a standard vac/boost system. Was hoping someone had a recommendation on what master to use.
