How to choose the correct Master Cylinder?

I don't know how to choose the correct Master Cylinder for my brakes.

In the front I have a 14" disc with 6 piston caliper (1.75, 1.38, 1.38 bore size, per side)

For the rear I have 14" disc with 4 piston caliper (1.38, 1.38 bore size per side)

But I'm not sure if a 7/8" master cylinder for front and 1" for the rear are the correct choise.???

Some one help me please.

And for a hidraulic clutch wich one?

Here some pics of the front brakes:



With 19" wheels:

You might want to give Lanner at VDub Customs an email. He may be able to help. Or you might end up having to go the same way as I did with Wilwood pedal assembly. It's really not that hard, especially with what you've done. If you didn't see it yet, look at the "Let There Be Brakes" thread and it'll show you at least what I've done.

Hugo, here is a link to a PDF that has a lot of information on dual master cylinders. It sounds like your setup will be fine. Hope this helps.

If I were you I'd just give Wilwood a call and tell them what you are doing. They'll recomend the correct MC front and rear. Then I'd call them again and ask another person, just to get a second opinion. They suggested my setup 2 out of the 3 times I called. If you use there pedal assembly they know exactly what kind of results you'll get given the weight of your car. They offer 2 lengths of pedals, the longer obviously providing more lever, but I chose the shorter to fit better under the dash, and these cars are a lot lighter than the stock cars they are designed to stop. There is also a lot of Wilwood stuff on Ebay. I got my pedal cluster and MCs on there for far less than MSRP. I got the balance bar adjuster for cost from a Canadian connection, but the point is that Wilwood is very popular so it's easy to come by and therefore much less expensive compared to a lot of others. Tilton is similar, but a little more costly and not as common to find, though I do think their pedal assembly is pretty cool, they don't offer a reverse-swing mount that I used.
