    Got it, I understand perfectly now. The booster has no performance impact, it just effects the feel (smaller booster = harder, larger = softer)

    Will install the Aspire MC ASAP, but I'll probably source a booster ASAP too, I'm expecting the brake to be too hard once the Aspire MC goes in.

    Thanks for patiently answering my questions

    Yes! The Aspire mc will help regardless of the booster.

    Okay cool.

    I need the brakes done by this Thursday so I'll just get the Aspire MC for now and do the booster a bit later.

    Do you think the Aspire MC without the booster will still offer some improvement or is doing one without the other an exercise in time wasting?

    You can run either booster. I like the aspire booster better.

    Yeah true. My 93 was purchased in 97 (I'm the 2nd owner) and remember feeling the same way.

    5 years on I think this MC upgrade will be the missing piece of the puzzle.

    One thing I've only just today realised is many of you also changed the brake booster, I didn't (I guess because I never did the MC) -- Is booster optional with an Aspire MC or mandatory ? It probably makes sense to do both ?

    EDIT: Yikes! Boosters are expensive here, places wanting almost $200. I guess that's a trip to the junk yard?

    Awesome thanks for the quick reply.

    I'm going to order one right now. The Festiva one always felt a bit handicapped to me, does the job but in a real emergency (touch wood never had one yet) I wonder if it's really up to the job.

    I have Aspire mc's on 2 of my cars. It helps a lot. Easy to install also. Might want to add the Aspire booster too. It helps too.

    Aspire Master Cylinder for Aspire-swapped Festy ?

    I did my aspire swap some 5 years ago now, all good, the brakes were a definite improvement over stock but I always felt like the festiva master cylinder was still holding me back from the true performance of this upgrade.

    I've got some brake work due for the car very soon so I was thinking I'd get an Aspire MC at the same time. I'm know some on these forums upgraded theirs so I'm guessing it must be a larger volume and better suited to this swap.

    If I could get confirmation I'll pull the trigger on one I just found at a reasonable price online
