    When I did the rear disc swap I looked into swapping the master cylinder but never did. I was told by a honda tech that they had different part numbers in the 4 cylinder due to the drum dosen't have ABS and the 6 is probably due to a different bore or reservoir capacity. I've had one panic stop and didn't notice the front or rears locking up more than the other end and don't worry about it at all!!

    No I never switched them. The brakes are already rock solid, I barely have to touch them and it stops. The only thing I am going to do is redo the lines and put in a different proportioning valve so the distribution is more even.
