Anyone running a CNC dual master cylinder with Levy's 6-piston front and 4-piston rear Wilwood brake setup? I am trying to size the cylinders for the front & rear and looking for feedback from those that have done it.

What sizes did you go with? How do you like the setup? Thx.

I am. See the Brakes section for a full write up.

I'm using 3/4" MC front and rear. The balance bar is just about in the middle, and the balance is pretty good. I'm going to take it to the track in a few days to dial it in better.

The new brakes are an amazing improvement. Much more stopping power with less pedal effort.

Nice write up bob. Can you provide any insight around your decision to go with two 3/4" cylinders versus a 3/4" and a 5/8"?

BobG, use 3/4" masters front and rear. I have found they work best.

There you go. Free advice from an expert is hard to turn down.


When I built the car a few years ago, these MC's were not very common. I bought them from a company called Autoworks International. They specialize in restomods for old Mustangs. I took their advice and installed 3/4" and 3/4". I guess that's a good size for a 66 Mustang.

But didn't work out so well in a FFR Roadster. I have a 5/8" MC sitting on the floor here. I was going to install that to balance the Ford brakes better. But then I decided to install the Wilwoods instead.
