There seems to be variants of the brake master cylinder for the coupe. The one on most 20vt I see are the short stubby ones like these..

However, most pictures on the internet are showing them to be the longer type like these...

I've always assumed that the longer ones are for the NA and 16VT models..however, some sites are listing the long ones for the 20vt too.

Can anyone confirm what the differences are and if the long ones are also compatible with the 20vt?

The long brake master is 16v n/a and turbo only, they don't fit the 20v vacuum assist unit Kelvin.

I thought as much. Thanks for clearing that up Joe. Don’t see anybody listing the 20vt one for sale with the correct image though. Are they hard to come by?

I’m actually just needing the the 2 L-shaped plastic connectors and its rubber seals but had no luck. The size of the connectors on those long master cylinders are more common it seems.
