    I am doing a late model GM hydroboost system for my E9 and thought I would throw this out there for anyone that may want this as a kit. The hydroboost would bolt up to the existing extension housing that the vacuum booster is attached to and would use a GM master cylinder as well. Great for race cars, Restomod cars, ect. The kit would be in the 600.00 range including the HB. You would source the MC for your individual needs.

    i can tell you that Gary (m5bb) put this type of system on his coupe after all of the metal + paint work. he hasn't driven it yet as the car is still going back together ... but i am waiting to see how it performs

    Will take pictures of the progress, but I can say that I have done this on many of my builds and the brakes always seem to work better and I never had to worry about insignificant vacuum on big cam cars.

    I’m interested Gary but the timing isn’t right. I have the utmost faith in your decisions under the hood.
