Default What brake calipers work with master power brake conversion

I was wondering if anyone knew what types (brands) of brake calipers work with a Master Power Disc brake conversion kit (front brakes)? I did the conversion sometime between 95 and 98, I believe, (rear conversion in 2004, yet to get it running) and with this current build I am looking to change the calipers. Hopefully I can still use the brackets (i believe they are from a mid size 90's chevy). My calipers were left in a garage that had a horrible roof leak and they rusted. Besides, they are probably very inferior. I hope not to replace the entire brake system again, (although wilwood and Baer are nice), but the engine does put out 500 hp.

Thanks

kc

Hard to say. Depends on what they were using then. There are a few single piston calipers that have been used over the years in conversions I think. Best option may be to take one of yours and a bracket to the parts store and compare. Three applications that I know of that are different but can be used are:
'69-'74 Nova
'70-'81 Camaro
'78-88 Monte Carlo (metric)
