    hey,
    i'm in the process of gathering all the parts necessary to perform a 4 wheel disc brake conversion. now i'm looking for a master cylinder (non abs/power steering) to suit this setup. I have a 96 Civic DX.

    i know i'll be required to get a RS MC and i found one at rockauto.com for 60 dollars (replacement, non oem).

    My question is if I want a bigger master cylinder to improve my braking, where can I get some aftermarket MC's or are any other bigger honda/acura MC's compatible with my setup?

    thanks
    chris

    yes, your dx master cylinder is 13/16, you can get one from an ex/si which is 15/16th, or the type R which is 1 inch, these measurements are on the side of the MC. . .

    the type r has abs and it requires a lot of modification to bolt it onto the non abs dx.

    is there any place i can get after market MC's?

    thanks for the info tho!
