Anybody have any ideas if there are any other ford master cylinders that are easy bolt-ons for the focus?

I may be wrong, but looking at the size of my SVT's master cylinder as compared to my friends mazdaspeed3's i cant help but wonder if a larger master cylinder would provide a decent boost in braking performance.

Seems unlikely, since with all other factors equal, a larger diameter master cylinder piston wll result in lower caliper piston forces on your brake pads, ie less squeeze on the discs.
Good luck,

Have you considered going the easier route of upgrading your pads and rotors? What is your current set up?

Also, changing the master cylinder will affect your clutch on the SVT.

I'd say in depend's on way the brake pedal fulcrum is= pedal pivot point too. Yes larger master cylinder piston diameter= less gain. So if your looking for more gain= bigger brake's BBK's & a cost effective= stainless steel line's! Baer racing has 13'' rotor's & PBR caliper's= '94-'04 cobra/C-4 vette= cost effective for what you get & oem part's! I've upgraded my SVT front brake's to these.[wiggle]@ they fit inside SVT wheel's too!
