Brake fluid leaking into booster, replacing master cylinder and booster

Hello everyone,

2016 FiST here, Cobb stage 3 w/ ATP 2554 larger turbo and TiAL Q BOV.

Last year I added some beaded brake lines and high temp fluid. Did this because I live in Florida and wanted to run some Autocross events down here, and love it!

BUT. This past week I thought my brakes were getting a little squishy. This morning when I went to take the car out, I had to press the brake HARD just to stop at a stop sign. I knew something wasn't right, for real this time. I turn around, go home, and check what's up. I check the calipers, and the lines, no leaks. I look at the tank, it's almost empty. Then I noticed the master cylinder was leaking and the rubber seal was eaten away from the brake fluid, and the brake booster was sucking in the fluid when I ran it. https://scrabblewordfinder.vip/ https://www.applock.ooo/ https://www.7zip.vip/


Ughhhhhh.... Now I'm replacing both. About 550$ for the parts, would probably take me a few hours, but I don't have the time. So I brought it to my trusted local mechanic while I start working. Total cost will be about 695$ after labor added. Still, not too bad all things considered.

Let this be a warning my fellow FiSTers! If you think something is up with the brakes, check it out immediately or get a mechanic to check it out! Might save you some $$!!

Anyways, best of luck out there to y'all!

Did you use DOT 5 fluid by mistake?
