    Hi all! I have been reading through countless forums in regards to what master cylinder to use with my 1970 camaro. I am installing an LS1/T56 setup. I have seen numerous complaints and compliments about many setups. I was hoping to use this forum for people to list what hydraulic MC they are using whether it’s stock or custom (Tick, McLeod, whomever), what mounting bracket they are using, and what slave you’re using. I think this would be a good resource for all the newbies out there like myself! Thanks in advance! Also leave a suggestion if you would go the same route!

    I used a McLeod master that bolted directly up to a Detroit speed bracket that bolted behind the brake booster.
    I use a stock Ls1 master cylinder with a 4an line in between.
    Works great. Love the way it all works.
    I did it much cheaper than any of those kits you can buy.
    110 for the master
    30 for the clutch line(it's a brake line from speedway motors
    60 for the slave(edit said master, meant slave)
    30 for the bracket
    14 bucks for the resivor kit.
    20 or 30 in all thread brake yoke and hardware to connect to pedal.
    Overall 260 bucks.

    I'm looking to do this upgrade and would appreciate any info on manufactures and part numbers.
    The McLeod kit is very nice but a little expensive

    I got a lot of it on sale/prices were cheaper it seemed lol, but it works great. The stuff for the pedal came from a local ace--it ran about 30 bucks total for the all thread, brake yoke and associated hardware.

    I am using the McLeod kit. It includes the firewall bracket. It fits perfect and was easy to install

    I used a hydraulic throwout bearing, not a slave cylinder.

    I used the Silver Sport Transmission's PerfectFit kit. It worked out great.

    That's what I basically modeled mine after, cost about 1/3 as much!
