HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

Mine are 5/8" front, 3/4" rear Wilwood compact masters too, mounted in a Tilton pedal box with Bigred front and 951 rear calipers. Pedal is rock hard, little travel, takes a lot of leg but I love it.

Ran a couple years manual brakes & rack but disliked the effort and slow steering ratio. Went back to the power rack with a Turn One pump.

Great feedback, thanks guys.  

Just an FYI, I've got a Wanted ad (click here) for any spare Tilton/Wilwood MC's you may have lying around, seeing as how they're not returnable.

Looking for 5/8", 7/10", and 3/4" bore sizes.


(Also looking for an LS2 intake manifold/fuel rails/injectors).

Thanks in advance!

Rich, with the tilton box, wants the ratio on the pedal; 5:1?

I am curious to see how my hydroboost feels with the 951 MC. Pretty much all of us have been using it with the Ford MC, which hasn't given the proper pedal stroke or bias.

The pads can be moved up and down on the arms adjusting from 5.3 to 5.75. I have mine maxed out.

bringing this back from the dead.

im just starting to dmc conversion, had the parts for months and just getting around to it. ive re-read all the info on this and have a couple questions. im going to be using a wilwood 60 degree remote pedal mount.

1) pedal ratio. ive read various info of people moving the pushrod up on the brake pedal 3/4" for a 6:1 ratio, i did this with my tandem master cylinder setup. now with the wilwood dmc mount there is a built in ratio of 1.48:1. with the pushrod in the factory position on the pedal that would give a 6.29 ratio, and moved up 3/4" gives a massive 8.88 ratio. now some of the info in this thread is mixed between tilton and wilwood mounts, and im unable to find any info on the now discontinued tilton mounts, but are they a 1:1 lever ratio? im a little confused on whats what, cause an 8.88 pedal ratio just doesnt add up.

2) im looking at building my bracket in a manner that will angle the master cylinders towards the strut tower. due to the unusual nature of my engine swap (ecotec 4 cyl) the added room from doing this would be a huge benefit in the future. can anyone see any issues with doing that? ive seen some pics of the tilton setup done essentially in the same manner. i cant see any issues with doing it, but i figured id ask.

just for the record, running ls430 with 12.19 rotors front, rx7 and turbo rotors rear, and ill be using 13/16" front master and 1" rear master.

i didnt want to wait for an answer so i continued building, and here is what i ended up with



the mount is at a 15 degree angle to the plate. i cant see how this could cause any issues.
