No, master cylinder won't fit. I've been playing with a 0-5v signals to spoof the pressure transducer. Looks like it uses the transducer instead of the brake light signal to engage the controller. It is a pretty cool controller, except that it won't engage without the ignition on.

Not to bust your balls but why? You can just buy a smart brake that will bolt right in and work

Doesn't matter how smart they are, they still don't work with pedal pressure.

AND......., because I can

That is how the smart brake work. Off brake pressure. A T goes inline off the master cyl and a pressure sensor reads brake pressure , converts it to volts and then sends it to the trailer
