02 maxima. Been lookin online about how to replace the master cylinder and came across some cylinders being step bore cylinders. I could not find any good information on google about this, but what is the difference between a step bore master cylinder and a conventional one? And which one does the maxima have?

Also just bought a brand new master cylinder and it has that plastic piece on the end of it (see pic), do I need to remove this or does it stay on? Also are there any parts I will need to transfer from original master to A1 cardone master?

I'm going to guess you will be removing it...probably just a cheap shipping clip to keep the seals/guts inside the master cylinder. You'll know for sure once you get the old one out, whether it belongs or not.

Good luck with the bleeding...and don't get any on your paintwork!

BTW looks like you'll need to swap the piston shaft and you'll need an o-ring.
