I'm running a factory 98 to 02 f body clutch set up works great. Got a bracket off eBay to mount master and modified my clutch pedal to work.

Does that setup work with power brakes?

I am working on the same thing myself. From my understanding Wilwood 260-3376 should work. Alot of people that have done this swap from what I can tell have used stock pedals that they have adapted to work. I think that is the route I am going to go myself.

Cool I talked to the guy selling them many times and he never tried it on a power brake car so I never bought one to try out...

I used a wilwood master and once I got the unit setup so it pushes the rod straight in it has worked flawless for two years now. before that I had the unit mounted on the firewall at a angle and it was eating the seals.

Making the connection to the pedal was easy
