It’s here! 

You can now pre-order Master Power Brakes’ new Billet X Master Cylinder. It’s becoming quite popular among our classic car customers. 

Here’s what you should know about the features, customization, and preordering of this brake master cylinder.

What Are the Features of the Billet X Master Cylinder?

Let’s begin with the standard features of the Billet X Master Cylinder: bottom ports, multiple lid options, and assorted finish styles.

Bottom Ports vs. Side Ports

The best feature of the Billet X Master Cylinder is the location of the ports. They come out the bottom instead of the side. Your brake lines will go straight down instead of weaving around the brake master cylinder. Opening up the area around the component will give your engine compartment a clean, finished look.

The ports as machined into the master cylinder are a standard ⅜”-24 inverted flare port. We include a stainless steel adapter to adapt over to a -3 AN fitting.

Multiple Lid Options

You’re not limited to one lid option with the Billet X Master Cylinder. Whether you like the classic look of the finned lid, the sleekness of the stepped lid, or the simplicity of the screw-in lids, you get to pick which one you want. 

Assorted Finish Styles

You also get to choose from three finishes: black anodized, natural shot-peened aluminum—which gives a really cool cast aluminum look—and polished. Picking from these styles is another way to customize the Billet X Master Cylinder and make it your own.

“Thanks to the crew at Master Power Brakes, we can start the planning and design of the engine bay with the sleek carbon boosters they’re making.
