    for future reference if you widen out the holes a size or two bigger you will have an easier time installing the bolts for both this or OEM master cylinder.

    Definitely a nice piece.

    FBJ told me the same thing the other day. Said getting the bracket lined up to the holes on the firewall was a PITA unless you did this.

    Trust me I spent an hr trying to line them up. I got so damn pissed off that I got a drill and did this, went in in 3 mins (FFFFFFUUUUUUUU) afterwards I went on LS1 how to and I see they even made that suggestion.

    I didn't know it was on LS how to. I got the tip from a friend about 6-7 years ago. Been doing it that way ever since. Just saves alot of time and scraped knuckles.

    If you manage to get under the wire loom thats huge for no reason the holes line up relatively easy but like what was stated cut knuckles willdefinitely happen
