So did the MC just fit into the brake booster ? No changes ?

What kind of intake are you using ? K8, KLDE, KLZE curved/longneck ? Did you hit anything with the fluid reservoir?

That's right direct fit, no problem. I'm using a KLG4 straight neck and a KL47 TB. I had to do the usual grinding of the throttle bracket so it wouldn't hit the reservoir and I even took a very tiny amount off the plastic lip on the reservoir. I'm heading out to do something but when I get back I'll post a pic or 2.

Yeah they are the same externally, minus the lines being on the other side. Just the inside has been bored to 1". I had heard rumors that the rod was different but figured it was due to the car chassis differences.

I believe all I had to do was adjust the rod, after it was in.

You mean this part ?

How about the inner part ? I believe there is a seal in the brake booster right?

Nope not on these ones. there is a bucket with grease for the end of the rod.

I'm not sure about the inner seal, I honestly didn't notice, but I haven't had any brake problems since it's been in.

And it looks like you have ABS, I'm not sure if it's any different, but I don't have ABS.

The seal on the millenia and GS booster are the same. Myself and a few others have swapped in a MX-6 booster, which has to be modified to get the GS master to fit and an alternative sealing method has to be sorted out. That may be where your confusion is coming from.

Still don't understand what part you had to adjust. Could you explain once more?
