|Tweek's Turbos||Yes, having the full package brakes done finally, I don't think the feel, and effect can be improved any more (cost effectively).|

|GenuineSaab||Vig uses RHD 9-5 master.. Has a special block to turn the reservoir to clear the delivery pipe. Also uses the 9-5 brake booster with 2 stages. Since the caliper pistons are the same there is no real reason to do this other than getting more assist and making it a bit easier to modulate. I personally like the feeling of the 9-3 brakes, the 9-5 booster is so flexy that no matter what you cant get a solid pedal.. I am comparing this to my V4 with non boosted brakes. The pedal is rigid in that old car.|

Found the thread. Here is the link.

I asked this a while ago and Nick talked about it. You can't use the viggen mastercylinder on the standard 9-3.
Dimtry your right about what you just said with the standard ng900 and og9-3's capable of higher brake pressure. Nick said that the larger bore of the viggen master cylinder reduces the benefit of the stronger accumulator from the 9-5. I'll see if I can find the thread.

|mg_td||so whats the total fluid capacity of my viggen brake system? its not listed in the manual.|

I don't have a clue why the price is that much lower, but the Viggen uses the master cylinder, reservoir and other associated hardware from a 9-5. The idea obviously was to adapt it for bigger brakes. The brake fluid capacity on the Viggen is also higher than on regular 9-3s (in the whereabouts of 900 ml vs 600 ml).
I also remember Nick saying that the stock NG900/9-3 master provides better stopping. Maybe it's out of context, so you better take it to him.

The calipers are the same sized, its just the rotor is bigger. So nobody knows?
My epc isn't loaded, I'm trying to buy a new comp.

now will it be overkill on a non viggen brake set up?
|04-27-2006 01:26 PM|
That's what I assumed, but I wasn't sure. Thanks

|guru||Ok, now I have to ask the really dumb question: why would they use a different brake master cylinder?|

Viggen vs 9-3 brake master cylinder.
Anybody know why the Viggen master cylinder wich is supposed to be better, would cost alot less than a standard 9-3 master cylinder.
Also, the fluid resevoirs seem to be the same for Viggen or standard 9-3. True?
