    rear fluid lines. the drum ones won't work.

    i'd also suggest getting a 91 ex sedan master cyl. its a $45 part and is 15/16" instead of 13/16

    abs is not a part of the master cyl anyway, but is is non abs.

    the reason it works great, is because it both fits the stock EG booster and the hardlines come out at the same spots.

    the gsr is also 15/16", but the hardlines will have to be bent, and its a pain in the ass.
    this one just bolts right in. 15 min job + bleeding

    I've been stripping parts lately off a 94 Integra at the junkyard recently. The drivetrain is already gone and there aren't any emblems on it, how do I tell if its an LS or a GSR? Can I use the master cylinder and rear disc brakes from this car on my 93 hatch?

    look at the vin. look for something like DB2, DC2, DC1, etc in the first part of the vin: JHEM____

    can you sure.

    but its a pain in the ass.

    rear discs are no problem, but i'd advise against using the master.

    you will need to use the booster as well for the master to fit... plus gsr's are abs, so, you have to bend and move hard lines.

    its just so much easier to spend 45 bucks at autozone and buy the 91 civic ex sedan master. its the same size.
