I am thinking of adding power brakes to my Mustrang. I already have 4 wheel disc - Granda and Versailles. I know I can get the Trans Am racing unit 15/16 bore or a 1" bore for a little firmer pedal. I also see that NPD now sells a dual resv. unit and Master power brakes does too. Anyone have an opinion on which unit is the best, or why one is better then another. I know that the Trans Am Racing with the trick cnc adapter plate was one of the first on the market and it is run on their own car with the brake set up like mine. Thoughts and or suggestions. Thanks,
Kory

I was told that the one from National Parts Depot had been returned for a refund by many customers.

Check out the JMC motorsports unit. The shop that does all my work, Johns Mustangs and Classics of San Diego, makes their own dual master cylinder unit.

Check out http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com and go to products and then brakes to see the unit. (JMC makes it for Total Control Products)

I have it on m car, but I have not had a chance to drive it so I cant tell you what I think of it. I dont get my car back next week, so I wont have any input until then.

If you want to see some blurry pictures of how it looks installed, go to my website @

I'll have some better pictures of it up Monday night when I get my film and disk back.

Did you install it yourself?

I've got that sitting on my shelf... 2 things about it made me not want to jump into it just yet.

1.) There is no provision to hold the push rod in, nothing for it to catch on to prevent the brake pedal from pulling it out.

2.) It's a big sucka and tough to mount and hook up with the 351W under the hood.

Stainless Steel Brakes has a dual power master cylinder also. I installed one a few months ago in my daily driver (already had their disk conversion). It works great. It's definately worth a look.

I was wondering who made the JMC stuff on the TCP web site. Now I know. But the JMC unit is not a power unit. I already have man. disc brakes, and the pedal moves just fine..but I figured upgrading to power would give me even better braking ability.
