Maybe I am re-stating the obvious, but you can't upgrade your master cyl if you still have ABS (based on your picture). The u/g is for people who converted to non-ABS.

Now, that MC "may" be from a car that has ABS, but keep in mind that the Corrado used the Teves I/II (which you have II with EDL) and that setup was an electric pump based system. Never used a Vacuum booster or traditional MC like non-ABS cars or later ABS passats and other VWs do which just used an external modulator to control pressure to each channel.

For the VR6 people doing Audi TT 312 rotors and either VW calipers or Boxster you’ll need 1/4” spacers, ECS sells them for $60

I bought 4 stainless washers for $14 shipped from this site: https://www.extsw.com/collections/1...id-x-25-1-mm-od-x-6-35-mm-thick-316-ss-washer


In my rear r32 calipers/carriers I needed 1/4 spacers because r32 and GLI rear carriers have different offsets so used these: https://www.extsw.com/collections/10mm-id-316/products/10mm-id-x-22mm-od-x-6-35mm-thick-316-ss
I did something similar, but just used a single thicker regular SS washer. I think the exact measurement needed is 5mm (based on Rotor offsets), but there is leeway (both ways) as you know.

Cool site though! I would have used the crap out of them before I got my lathe :p
