    you dont need a new master cyl ... you do need a 4040 proportional valve though (you have a 3030 right now)

    you have a 3030 proportional valve
    you need a 4040 proportional valve

    you can get it from honda for pretty any civic/integra with 4 disks (possibly even other models)
    you could probly get one at a junkyard if you want to

    it will have "4040" stamped on it
    its located here:

    It's a PITA, and NOT necessary to change. I waited a year to change mine after the rear disk swap. Honda does not use a front rear prop valve rather a cross ways one. The front left and rear right are on one side and front right with rear left on the other. The 4040 and other 4 wheel disk valves may allow different amouts of pressure to flow, but are not required any more than a bigger mastercylinder. The MC would actually be more needed as you will be spreading the pressure you had out more if you swap the prop valve and it does anything different than your stock one. Both are pretty cheap though and should be swapped to do it right.

    B16RacerN2NR what was up with the Dizzy? Glad you got it running.
