I was just thinking ease of checking fluid levels, plus master cylinders do leak on occasion. I would not want to be trying to fill that thing without getting fluid on the dash/floors etc. I like the idea under dash, especially for coyote swaps etc, but I would 100% run a reservoir to the engine bay. That might be just me though. After the build was finished, I was checking fluid levels after every drive. I now do it once or twice a week, so I'd want it to be easy.

It had crossed my mind about a leak at the rear seal although unfortunately because of the plenum I didn't have an option except to go under. A good tip I learnt when working on the Aussie legends was to use a syringe to fill it, saves any spillage
Ryan, that turbo l6 can easily produce 500hp and 700nm of torque. More than enough to frighten the chooks!!
Its not uncommon to make a very street-able 700-900 from a Barra Turbo and it will drive like a dream, with just a few good bits. With Big boost say 38+ pound + good internals and 1300Hp+ and 8 sec 1/4's is not much trouble still streetable on E85 fuel. If you Google Pure Vision engines these guys build crazy fast Ford Turbo 6's.
Also with the master cylinder under the dash I'd drill and tap the lid and make some remote bottles to feed it.
