I am seeking solutions to my front brakes on my MK V that is currently on the road to gain a better (compared to modern) brake peddle.
The issue are (1) bleeding air from the front brakes and (2) getting a better peddle response.
I am seeking info from anyone who has left the front brakes as standard but reversed the entry point for the fluid to the lower piston and placed the bleed nipple on the upper piston, thus allowing the air to be easier expelled on bleeding.
This appears to have maintenance benefits to be and easy option with min changes.
(2) Peddle response
Has anyone replaced the existing master cylinder utilizing the existing mounting and peddle setup with a larger diameter cylinder thus delivering greater fluid for the same peddle movement or over bored the existing housing and used the existing piston with appropriate upgrade in seals?
Or is there a better way, say utilizing another master cylinder in the original mounting configuration?
I prefer not to change the mounting position of the master cylinder or add addition equipment such as boosters etc, but just want to improve the existing set up.
