Unhappy Problem on brake or master cylinder???

Hi poeple, I just replaced my new greenstuff front barke pads,new
slot brake disc, Goodridge SS barke line, and Motul 600 high temp.
barke fluid! After all , I still feels my brake doesn't change much
at all, my machenic told me it may be the problem of the master
cylinder!!
Does anyone do on the master cylinder?? my car is a 92 Legacy turbo
and has 200,000 km now and never change the master cylinder before,
will it be the problem that comes from?? And how much will the master
cylinder cost? Better buy from the dealer or aftermarket? Will it
hard to install by myself?
People, please help!!

haven't replaced one myself but if you go that way you will probably get the best price from Lisa at Troncalli. Give her a call to see what you're looking at cost wise. Her shipping is free too

Ben:
Be sure that you have bled the system properly before buying a new master cylinder. If there is the slightest amount of air left in the system it will not matter what kind of good brake parts you have, the brakes won't work well. You may even need a pressurized "power-bleeder" at a garage to really get all the air out, particularly after having had the system as disassembled as you have. Also chack and be sure that you have proper vacuum to the brake power booster, it could be the booster also. Bonne chance!

Hi Motorob, thanks for your advice, but I would like to know where and how can I do thepressurized "power-bleeder" ?
and how can I know there is proper vacuum to the brake power booster???
Please help!!
I'm sure I bleed all the air from the brake line, and I could see all the brake fluid is clear.
Thanks again!
