This is a case where RockAuto can help.
First, use the full site (NOT the smart device app!)!
Then, look up the part needed (like the SVX MC), once it's up, click on the PN and see what other years/models it fits. It goes across manufacturers, so if it crosses to a Nissan, Toyota, etc. it shows up.

RA's data is pretty accurate and the prices are not too bad. If you look around, you can usually find a 5% off discount code.

Looks like you can still get the MC rebuilt as a A-1 Cardone PN 11-3849 from various sources for about $40 with a core charge.

Any listing for the Centric 130.47019 may come up but they are all out of stock with no due date.

Since we did a WRX front and rear brake upgrade on our 99 Impreza L (front disc, rear drum) this may be worthwhile.

I'll have to look and see what's on my recently-acquired '96 Impreza. It's a Brighton, so it was originally tiny disks and drums, but the previous owner upgraded to RS brakes.

Do all of the MCs have an external size marking, like in the pic posted by bue car?

Sho'nuff, 15/16" MC, so that would explain the soft pedal. Not sure I care enough to change it, but I'll add it to the project list.

As soon as I find something, I am buying 2 to stash away

There seems to be some options with no reservoir, have to find a reservoir that we can swap on

This is at Pepboys and Autozone, etc it seems.

I just bought two of the 4-port reman MCs from RockAuto. The OEM part is NLA from the dealer.

From my dealer, with my discount, the reservoir (not the MC) was like $25, the cap was around $20, but the level sensor was $70-something...

Also, the screw that mounts the reservoir to the MC is NLA.

I'm going to try to use the fluid level sensor that came with the car's OEM MC and hope it fits the newer reservoir.

The reservoirs should be plentiful, since they're not just an SVX thing. That's the same style my '97 Legacy has, and according to Subaru's parts search site, that style was used on Legacys/Outbacks through '98, and Imprezas and SVXs through '97.

26451AA000, about $25 ($34 MSRP).

Thank you for posting this info. Very helpful. I have a 97 leggy that has a 2 pot upgrade in the front and the brakes didn't feel right. I just ordered the Cardone unit from rock auto this evening. My MC just went out last week so the timing of all of this is perfect.

Question for all of you that have completed the non abs rear disk conversions. What prop valve are you all using? JDM? ABS disk prop valve? Original drum to disk prop valve?

I'm using a prop valve from a nonabs 94 Legacy with rear discs. Seems to work pretty well, I'm on WRX calipers and rotors in front, WRX rear calipers and H6 brackets and rotors.

I need to try and read the markings on the part, super hard to read the casting.

These pics are from 2015 on an older build. I still bough 3 new valves from Japan Parts. One as a spare

Part Number: 27673FA001



[




I don't think the yellow dot or white marks mean anything? Those are both the same part number, 2 separate units. Yes, I build too many toys

So in total I have bought 5 of them bad boys already.

Perhaps this one? Pressure control valve (found on the Brakes - Other page). Says "For 2.0L turbo without ABS." The other one they have listed (as a "presser control valve") says with ABS.

yep

this is a regular Impreza L non-abs prop valve, it also came on gravel spec Spec C V9 (cars with no ABS and manual only DCCD, which were equipped with 4 port 1 1/16" MC which I am running)

I ended up taking it off my car, because on non-ABS Brembo equipped GC it gives way too much nose dive as the rears are not getting enough pressure, so if anybody wants it its for sale

now I am rocking this sucker

The 97 Legacy Outback with ABS came with a 1-1/6" MC with 2 outlet ports.
Just find a quality (steel, not brass!) flared tee and hook up your lines...these are good sealing parts, not really an issue of "failure points".
