My brother runs a stock sami one with toy axles. the 4 piston caliper probably needs just as much fluid as the large single piston jeep caliper. if you need more. use a dodge master cylinder and hog the holes.

The Subie MC bolts on (no hogging holes and metric to SAE adapters) and has a 1 1/16" bore.........

I believe I usedd one from a 98 Legacy w/ABS......

I think that if you are running rear drum brake toys then the sammy MC will be fine but I'm running the Firebird MC and love it.

if you want to go with the Mazda 929, I have one for $50

The Subie Legacy and Legacy Outbacks are the donors. As Crow pointed out, direct bolt on and stays metric (uses Sammy fittin's). It's even NIBCO, so it's OEM.

With a 1-1/16" bore, it's the largest bore MC I've been able to find that is driect bolton, metric.

If you got a lot of fluid to move (ie, 4 wheel disc) the bigger the bore, the better.

X2. Thats why I went with a Firebird one. Plus I'm smart enough to reflare the lines with the right fittings.

MCs cost $9.99 with a dollar core from the picknpull up hear, so I don't know what price has to do with it.

If your are upgrading to a larger MC, why wouldn't you want the larger fluid displacement?

I guess some like to work harder to have less. Whatever floats the boat.

The only reason I can think of why one wouldn't go with the Subie MC in my opinion might be availability. The Firebird MC's are easily available. However, The Subie MC looks like it grew there AND is easier to install (not that any of them are a big deal).

For my application, the Subie MC was the only way to go as The overall length of the MC would be an issue. Anything longer would interfere with my oil filters.......

The Subie MC is a cleaner install and worth any extra effort to procure. For some, this isn't an issue........

I made a hybrid booster for mine. I was able to bolt a Toy booster to my Zuk body with no body mods and I run an FJ MC with 4 wheel discs on Toy axles. Jim
