THE BENEFITS OF A MANUALBRAKES.COM CONVERSION:

  • 6 to 1 Pedal Ratio - Creates less effort by the driver to stop the car and multiplies the fluid pressure in the system.  No other manual brake conversion kit can match this.
  • Dual Bolt Pattern on the Adapter Plate - Use GM, Ford, or MOPAR master cylinders.  No other manual brake conversion kit can do this.
  • Better pedal modulation for consistent braking - No low engine vacuum issues to worry about.


The adapter plate is CNC machined by a water jet from rigid 1/8” thick aluminum with dimensions that covers up the hole in the firewall after you remove the power booster. This modification will clean up your firewall by getting rid of the big, bulky power booster. Racers do this swap when their engine does not make enough vacuum to operate the power booster, to shed a few pound to make their car lighter, or to clean up the engine bay.  The pro-touring fans use manual brakes to get a better “feel” of their brakes when heading into a corner at a high rate of speed.  The adapter plate can also be polished up to a mirror finish if needed.

See installed view at thirdgen.org  http://www.thirdgen.org/forums/brakes/724398-manual-brake-installation-pictures.html

Remember:

  • Higher Pedal Ratio = Less Leg Effort = Increased Braking Performance
  • Smaller Bore Master Cylinder = Higher Fluid Pressure = Increased Braking Performance
  • Kit comes with a gasket matched to the adapter plate to seal the passenger compartment from the engine bay.  The other kits do not offer a gasket in their kits.
  • Kit comes with a dual bolt pattern to run different master cylinders from GM, Ford, and MOPAR.  The other manual brakes kits do not have this feature.
  • Kit comes with a under dash brace that is included in the kit and reduces firewall flex dramatically.  The other manual brake kits offer this at an additional cost.
  • Kit comes with the correct size master cylinder that is matched to the size of the front and rear brakes.  The other manual brake kits offer a larger bore master cylinder which generates less brake line pressure.


Parts to Enhance Your Manual Brakes on Your F-body:

  • 100% Organic Brake Pads - Organic pads perform better at lower temperatures than semi metallics and ceramics.  Good for street and drag strip.
  • New Rubber or Stainless Steel Flexible Brakes Lines (front and rear) - Old rubber lines will "balloon" causing loss of pressure within the braking system.
