It was using humour to state the importance of the master cylinder. The CofG is similar to the brak proportioning idea.No,master cylinders are not a universal swap. Talk to your local GM dealer that has an old parts guy that hates computers. The piston inside the proportioning valve will mount different/have a different bore(this determines pressure} the mechanical leverage of the pedal/The booster.NOTE: some masters can be used without a booster. Boosters need engine vacuum to operate,big cams do not produce as much vacuum at low speed.Its a very big math formula,k.i.s.s. or really investigate options.Thats why I said research wilwood. Wilwood offers over size rotors/drilled rotors,masters of many types, multi caliper styles(single piston,multi piston,apposed piston) NOTE: with over sized rotors you may need special wheels,,,,
