    will a bigger brake booster help with our factory twin pot brakes?

    also does anyone know if the 3000gt brake booster is bigger than the evo's?!

    i read somewhere that if you replace your current brake booster with a bigger one it'll big you a better brake feel and of course stopping power..

    ours is the biggest mitsi make for a car,
    its only there to assist braking, wont do a hell of alot fitting a bigger one...
    i fitted a vr4 on on the st, made no difference IMO,

    the only bigger bit we can fit for better braking is the brake master cyclinder from a evo 5 or 6,
    they came with a 1 & 1/16inch master cylinder.

    verus our vr4s which came with 1" master cylinders,

    NOT all evo 5/6 had the big master cylinders, it depended on what options they had, some had the 1" like ours

    the bigger ones are cast with 17/16 on the underside of the cylinder.

    (all misti master cylinders have there size cast into the underside of the cylinder)

    ive already looked into what we can fit master cyclinder wise,
    the GTO (3000GT) will not fit because the fluid cup sites on the wrong side of the cylinder,
    and will hit our strut towers, we cannot fit our cups to it either as its attached differently,

    the evo 7/8/9 unit will fit but will need wiring to be adapted, and you need the complete master cylinder/cup assembly

    the 5 or 6 unit is the only one that bolts on with no problems/mods needed
