    Are those 19's. The 18's that come on base 13/14 GT's, require over an inch spacer to work
    with 4 pots. I still put them back on for winter storage, using 8mm spacer and 1 inch bolt on spacers
    (that have built in, separate studs). But I wouldn't be happy tooling around on the street with that style
    of spacer.

    Than you probably have a much better shot. Here is the measurement
    you need to look out for. @ about 5.5 inch radius off hub center, you need over 1.75"
    clearance from WMS.

    My knockoff Bullitts clear by a hair, using 8mm spacer. Any larger spacer and you lose hubcentric
    ability/feature. (unless you get spacer that extends hubcentric feature, but many of them are too
    wide for stock length studs)

    Here is the clearance with my 18's and 8mm spacer.

    From what I gather that is the case. I haven't set down and researched that. Whatever it uses, it is bigger than what is on the 05-09 gt's.

    Looks like ROCKAUTO claims MOTORCRAFT BRMC210 for either 2014 GT or GT500.
    Was 6 piston fronts std or optional on 13/14 GT500?

    Stock 11-14 master cylinder works. Don't know about 05-10 master cylinder.

    Six piston fronts were standard on 13/14 GT500.

    "works" is subjective. My car was long travel spongy on stock GT brakes. Even worse with Brembos. I'm not saying they don't work better, just wish they had less brake travel to get going. 6 pistons on S197 are reported to be even worse for travel (oddly, the 6 piston GT350/GT500 and 6 piston S550's use different caliper piston diameters/arrangements).

    A larger diameter master cylinder bore size will give a firmer pedal with less travel, but at the expense of lower line pressure and even less braking force. To change to a smaller piston master cylinder will increase line pressure but at the expense of longer pedal travel. Like anything, there isn’t going to be any one magic part to get the system functioning properly. The right combination of parts is going to be the best bet. Likely proportioning valves, residual pressure valves, coupled with the correct amount of pedal throw. The first step to diagnosing and fixing the problem with your throw and pedal feel would be to find out how much brake pressure you are actually producing. Easy to do with a brake pressure gauge. I found a good article on this subject a while back. I will dig it up and link it.
