Wanting a little more stopping power on a 97 K1500 Chevy pickup 5.7. I know there are a lot of things involved to make this happen, but see there were 2 different bore size master cylinders used. 1-1/8 and 1-1/4. Am I thinking right about the physics here, the smaller the bore the more power to the wheel cylinders? But farther the travel? And will semi metallic have better grip than ceramic? Thanks
I would be hesitant to mess with this factory combo.
The larger MC - did you check to see if it had a corresponding increase it caliper or wheel cylinder piston sizes ?
From Air craft days I believe The theory FAP (force = area X pressure) the larger bore is an increase in area (π r2) the foot pressure being the same would result in greater force on the caliper piston and the resulting increase in force on pads.
