    Hey guys was wondering how hard or easy it is to swap the brake booster/master cylinder setup from a type r (be it dc2 or dc5) into a ek3 hatch? I figure this would be a good base to modify my brake setup on my ek3. I would follow up with maybe a wilwood kit in terms of discs and callipers. Thanks and I look forward to your replies.

    DC2 and DC5's are different generations.

    As far as bolting in, I'm assuming it will, but you may have to bend or reroute the brake lines. Also, I believe one of the ports are 12x1mm fitting, so you'd need an adapter or swap out the fitting for the larger one(requires reflaring).

    So what would be an easier route to take? Would just changing the master cylinder, but leaving the booster, make a difference? I read somewhere that the gsr master cylinder works back with the ek brake booster. Feel free to comment.
