I have a st165, and 1 " cylinder now. Pedal travel is still a bit much, but on the track with the racing compound pads it works great once up to temp.
Had to buy new pads for rear.

I have AP front (6 piston) and 205 rear. Pedal feel is firm like stock. Those brakes make a big difference compare to OEM set up. Bleeding manually took some time especially the fronts as there are 2 bleeder on each caliper.
The car is 91 RC originally non ABS.

That's great news! So a 165 abs master cylinder, but without using the abs? BTW, did your car come with abs from the factory? Do you also have a project page for your 165, I only saw the one for your 185?

Thanks!

I had a project page for my st165 but I never updated it, to busy working to be taking a photo blog. I do update my facebook frequently

Yes I orginally had ABS, so 1" bore.

I got rid of the ABS, replaced all the hard lines with PTFE -3 SS. I run a Prop valve, st205 rears new pads, willwood 4pot fronts with race comp pad, motul rbf fluid. Since using the rbf on other cars I have noticed that this can play a roll in the pedal feel. It seems that when the fluid comes up to temp along with the brakes the pedal is much better. Originally when I was complaining it was with the street comp pad, and the RBF fluid. You can also adjust the pedal from the brake switch a bit. I had done this driving up to the track, a few laps in my brakes were up to temp and would not release, so I had to back it off. I will be making a modified set up this season
