Well, I work for an autoparts company, so I get a discount. I paid $35 for a new master cylinder. I'm not sure what the retail is, but it's probably about twice that or more. You could always pull one from the junk yard if it was in good shape.

Since I have pics handy I'll post up the difference between the stocker and the 15/16.

The stock 90 civic MC:



And the 15/16 MC = BAM!



No bending of lines required.

My new injector cut-off switch came in handy when I was coming home from PA a couple of weeks ago. It was a 3 mile downhill stretch about 7 or 8 miles southwest of Port Royal on PA-74. I just put it in 4th and killed the injectors at about 40 mph at the top of the hill. About 1/3 of the way down, I had to hit the brakes and slow back down to around 50 then again around 2/3 of the way down. Since the engine was still turning, I had power brakes, A/C(if I had needed it), oil pressure, and alternator for lights and radio. Since I don't have power steering that wasn't even an issue.

If I notitce my brakes are getting dangerous I use the emergency brake (it helps with small stops).

I agree. My Metro has no PS, but it does have PB. However, if I do run out of vacuum (which is rarely) it's still no problem to stop. That could be my driving style too. I always brake very gently over really long distances.

I get panicky in the passenger seat with most people since they're usually still accelerating while I would have been braking 100 yds back in some situations.

Another thought on vaccum. I wonder if it would be possible to set up some sort of braking accumulator system so there is always a charged reserve? I'll have to look into it.

Cool! There is such a thing. Very popular in BMWs and Audis.

Sorry for OT, but the CRNSX is the biggest pile of sh!t I've ever seen. Mahdavi Motorsports built the car (they're in Atlanta) and it is an absolute BASKETCASE of back-woods engineering and shoddy work. It sounds cool, but you get a close up look at it and it blows.

When they first built it (it was red) we saw it at the track. It was spraying nitrous and was only running 13's.

I was like WTF FTW!!!!

While CODFishing I turn the key to accessory (so the steering doesnt lock) and coast. If I need more brake boost, I leave the key on acc. and let out the clutch in 5th to spin the engine for a couple seconds giving me a couple more stops with the brakes. This just spins the engine without any spark or fuel. I figure that this is fine for the engine. If anyone knows otherwise let me know! When I am coming to a stop after coasting engine off, I start it in 5th at anywhere from 30-20mph.

You should leave the key in the run position if you are going to coast with the engine off. The reason for this is that, when you are in the accessory position in most cars, your odometer isn't registering mileage. This would kind of defeat the whole purpose of Engine Off Coasting which is to rack up mileage without the engine running.
