Check the bore sizes first, I think the T1 cylinder may have a smaller internal bore than the T2, which would tend to give you more pedal travel and "softer" brakes.

Perhaps a bay window dual cct cylinder would be more appropriate.

I know that beetle cylinders are 17mm dia, and brake drum equipped bays are 22.5mm dia, not sure about splitty cylinders though.

I would only consider using one the same diameter as stock, or perhaps slightly larger.

Dave.
