This sis my last attempt to explain it to you guys. I won't respond after this, not out of pettiness, it just won't make sense if I do.
So you are both telling me that a 1 1/18" pipe can flow the same volume of water at the same rate as a 7/8" pipe? Both pipes handle the same pressure as it is a different force. It should be painfully obvious now that the larger pipe will push MORE fluid at the SAME pressure.
Does not matter if the system is sealed. Again, I have never once discussed pressure as this has nothing to do with pressure. You need MORE volume to push on the larger surface area of the piston. It will take nearly the exact amount of pressure and force to push the larger piston.
IF that analogy does not make sense then think about cubic inches in engines. Take a 4.8L LSx and compare it to the 5.3L LSx engine. They use the identical block and cranckshaft. The only differnce is piston size and stroke. Piston size and stroke determine the VOLUME of the combustion chamber. The 4.8L and 5.3L have the same compression ratio so the PRESSURE is static. The only difference is VOLUME in the combustion chambers as the 5.3L has more VOLUME than the 4.8L which allows it to let more air/fuel in to make more power.
Anyhow, the one thing that stares out at me is that you were willing to spend at least twice as much on brakes for "performance" but changing the master is out of the question.
As for Corksport, they won't tell you to upgrade the master with their kit because it is not needed for safety reasons. Speed6 guys already have the proper master cylinder and regular 6 guys are likely to not care as they will feel a difference, but it will not be optimal. Besides that, the aftermarket for 1st/2nd gen 6's is DEAD. I' shocked when I see places still trying to price expensive simple mods for our cars, the 6 was never properly supported by Mazda as well as the aftermarket.
Anyhow, you can think any way you want, this is high school science.
