Securing Brake Master cylinder

Noticed someone had secured the front of their master cylinder (ED - EF ?) with a bracket to stop the flexing that occures when the pedal is pushed.
Read somewhere that this delivers a small but noticeable improvement in brake operation.

The one I saw had the bracket secured by a bolt into the front of the master cylinder.
Can anyone advise the depth to which the front can be drilled and tapped ?

Thanks and Regards.

dont bother! we have done this modification at work with the car fully instrumented to measure any differece, and none was noted. any increase in pedal feel is in the mind i think you'll find. Other wise we would fit them to our premium brake upgrades from the factory!
