I run a 7/8” for my manual discs.
A 15/16” will be a little less peddle travel and a little more effort.
You can call wilwood with your caliper specs and they could tell which would work best.

For a first gen the power brake pedal ratio is 3.5:1. The attachment point for manual brakes gives a 6:1 pedal ratio.

My brake lines are small probably 1/8”. They are the speedtech lines for my subframe. And im probably gonna upgrade to c5!brakes up front and i have right stuff calipers in rear.
So with the smaller lines the line pressure will probably be automatically hight ( thinking of how a powerwasher works) and the front brakes may need more volume over stock. So probably a1” bore would be a good choice?

Re: master cylinder info

I would recommend you speak to Tobin from Kore, he was very helpful in assisting me with parts as well as info for my C6 & LS1 rear setup.

I don’t think this is the case. Brake line diameter plays no significant role in brake pressure as far as I know.
