Hyundai i30N Brake Master Cylinder Stopper
**PLEASE NOTE THIS PART IS FOR RHD VEHICLES ONLY**
- Improves brake pedal feel, giving you better performance and response whilst braking.
- Provides extra structural support and reinforcement to the firewall.
- Firewall deflection happens in all vehicles.
- Reduces firewall deflection from the heavy force applied from braking.
There is a very common problem in most vehicle braking systems, and your Hyundai i30 N is no exception, it's called brake master cylinder deflection!
So what is master cylinder deflection?
This event occurs when the pedal assembly meets the brake booster at the firewall. When you apply high amounts of pressure on the brake pedal, the firewall deflects because of low structural support. This movement is normal but does take away from the pedal's performance, the loss of energy taken by the firewall moving makes the brake pedal lose response.
Take a look for yourself; it's genuinely surprising how much it moves. if you're watching from the engine bay, get a mate to push hard on the brakes, now look at the master cylinder and how much it moves under pressure. (You should see the deflection of pressure by the movement of the whole brake booster and the master cylinder)
To combat this problem, we have designed a reinforcement bracket that attaches to the strut tower in front of the master cylinder. Off this bracket is a bolt and machined elephant’s foot. Adjusting the bolt to the master cylinder applies preloaded pressure to the firewall, removing the deflection.
Why brace the master cylinder this way?
With the bracket giving extra structural support, more energy can be transferred into the master cylinder. The effects of recovering this lost energy improve pedal performance and feel.
Combine this IFX Hyundai i30N Brake Master Cylinder Stopper, IFX Braided Brake Lines and a set of performance disks and pads; makes for the perfect brake upgrade for your i30N.
