    Could you provide a writeup of sorts on installing the EGT M/C? I'm pretty interested in this, the festiva one is poop... Do you use the EGT booster as well?

    Thanks in advance!

    1993 Festiva L, aspire swapped, selling parts for a BP+T build.

      After working on bobbyspider's bp swap I learned that anything bigger than the festiva booster will interfere with the clutch slave cylinder if you are swapping to a hydro clutch. I think his car had a booster from a egt. Maybe if an aspire one is larger than a festiva one and smaller than a egt one it would work. I feel no need for a larger booster right now. Or cars need more traction before that.

      The festiva brake master cylinder is a 2 port- one line goes to the front circuit, one to the rear. The egt cylinder has 3 ports, one for each front wheel and one for the rear circuit. You will also need the proportioning valve with 3 in ports and 4 out ports. Since the egt has rear disc I figured it would not be balanced for a festiva with rear drums. I got my proportioning valve from a 323 that has a 3 port master cyl and rear drum brakes.
