Calibra turbo LE brake master cylinder upgrade?

by Robs Calibra » Sun May 17, 2015 7:44 am

Does anyone know a better upgrade Master Cylinder for a calibra turbo LE? I have 6 pot calipers and pedal feel is awful, sinks to low down. I have a 23.8mm standard but been told a 25.4mm from a Vec B GSI would fit. I bought this, but the bracket is the wrong way round so does not go on the servo.

Can anyone else shed any light, as to is there a master cylinder that will be a direct fit?

Racking my brains as I was told the Vec b gsi would fit, but the bracket on the standard calibra turbo faces around 10 past 7, and the Vec B GSI bracket faces around five to four.

How as the bracket is the wrong way round when fitting on servo. What Vec gsi year or are the all the same. I went to Courtenay and they could not do as bracket wrong way round when fitting on the calibra turbo servo?

Vectra GSi one is a direct fit, I've had this on two Calibras.

Makes no sense. Can you please tell me specific years? For example, on ebay there is a Vec b gsi master cylinder 1998 for £50. The bracket is the wrong way round to go on calibra turbo servo. And it states ATE 23mm. I thought the Vec b gsi is 25mm.

So confused.

Can u tell me where u have fitted yours, what way is the bracket facing when connecting to servo. I must get this sorted chaps before I literally go crazy.

Yes, lol. Can you find me the setup you have for me to purchase. Think u fitted a Saab servo u said, but why would u fit that if direct fit to Calibra turbo servo? What way does your bracket sit on servo. I would love to sort this weekend!going crazy. See what I have bought. Is this the same as yours? Same bracket positioning?

Does this Vectra GSi master cylinder (if it does fit) also fit the standard X20XEV? And if so is it a worthwhile upgrade?
