Default 944 Master cylinder

My beetle currently runs 944 brakes all round with late 944 turbo calipers. This all runs via a beetle master cylinder (disk brake Version)
I'm about to remove the front beam etc to refresh the front suspension so the master cylinder is within easy reach. I also have an early alloy 944 sitting in my garage.
Is it worth replacing? how does it fit? any adapter required? I don't want the car off the road long hence me asking for advice.
My quick research shows that an early 944 has 19/19 mc off set but I cant find anything on the 1500 beetle master cylinder currently.
Photo booth rental for any event!

I believe these are fairly straightforward to fit however, you will need to fabricate some new brake pipes & use a T piece to mount a brake light (pressure switch) as the 944 master cylinder has no provision for a brake light switch.
