MCP master cylinder & Wilwood Caliper. You may need to make your own mounting bracket(s), but those parts will last approximately forever, compared to most anything you can get from Europe. The Euro guys have some nice calipers now, but still can’t seem to make a decent master cylinder, ie. one that is not designed to suck up dirt & fail “soon”. Oh, one problem with the Wilwood caliper: you may have to figure out how to get less rear brake…the rotor needs a lot of holes in it to reduce the available friction surface, or it will be “hair trigger” sensitive. At least that’s how mine worked out…
