    m16 calipers with servo

    Hi all ive been told that a good cheap and effective mod is to fit a servo to my mk1 escort road rally car. It has m16 calipers on the front and sierra cosy rears.
    Has anyone ever retro fitted a remote servo to their escorts etc (mine has adjustable pedal box etc)

    It will only make the pedal easier to push, it won't make the brakes any more effective.
    Yes, people have done it. Ideally you would have two servos if you have a bias box with two master cylinders, but I have heard of people fitting them just to the front lines. (not sure how good of an idea that is )

    i used a mk1 for road rallies many years back, it had a servo on front only (remote type). brakes (ds11 pads) were superb and it would stand on its nose. as far as i know it had std m16 non vented calipers. i dont believe you could have braked harder on the 185/60/13 tyres. rear was drums.

    i have a standard little master cylinder that goes through a remote servo then into the little brass splitter ,one in, one to the rear and two for the front .m16 calipers and solid disks on front and drums at rear .im very happy with the setup and it stops well. I am only running approx 115 bhp though
