Step by Step Video Guide: How to upgrade to a ZL1 Master Cylinder in your 5th gen

I upgraded my master cylinder over the summer and created a detailed, step by step video guide showing how to replace and / or upgrade the master cylinder on your 5th generation Camaro. CLICK HERE FOR THE VIDEO This is an upgrade to my stock 2012 V6 Master Cylinder to the larger ZL1 Master Cylinder to complement my ZL1 brake upgrade (video coming soon).

I would recommend that you bench bleed the new master cylinder to remove as much air as possible from the system. I show how to properly bench bleed the master cylinder in the following link: Click Here

Get it your own master cylidner here! http://amzn.to/2FONpts

5th Gen Camaro (2012-2015) ZL1 Master GM Part Number: 22956541

Probably not completely necessary but I got the parts second hand and pieced it together over time for a good price - really fill out the rims nicely and braking is

I do not believe so. For the 2012 model year they share the same part number: 22956541. I did not check the other model years.
