2000 Acura Integra mileage: 160,000. I replaced the front left caliper a couple of months ago. Now my pedal sinks to ground at stop signs. I am planning to change the master brake cylinder. I am wondering if there were any mismatch between the calipers, would it cause any extra stress to the master cylinder. What bad effects can I observe from changing only one caliper? Thanks very much.

From what you describe, the master cylinder is failing. Changing only one caliper should have no affect on the master cylinder.
