been looking more into the hydroboost setup. and found a good candidate. they are checking on what the rod travel is on their universal one. they think it will work for what i want. heres a link. ur opinions? i talked to eric earlier and he said about making sure it has a threaded rod. and it does.

I like the fact the gold reservoir is on the opposite side of the head. Would be a major bonus if it fits the Larger 25mm BMW MC Very Happy

the resevoir can be rotated to either side u want. they make each one as they get the order. so they make it to whichever mc ur gonna use. they gave me the length of the threaded rod and the clevis but dont have it offhand. they also use the generic gm bolt pattern of 3.4 x 3.5.

So what would be the advantages over using the mustang hydroboost? The mustang rebuilts are about half the price and I got a core from a junkyard with MC and lines for $75.

Rob, What tandem master cylinder would you use with this and your LS430/Rx7 caliper swap?

I would like to get away from the Willwood MC as it's a hard to seal.

I contacted the Hydraboost people about this booster to ask about its use with a Turn One PS pump.

They consider the installation of their unit in a V8 Porsche conversion to be fraught with difficulties. In fact they suggested this electric unit as a realistic option.

Yeah, that ABSPowerBrake setup is what Squires, the V8 conversion shop here in Seattle, uses. Makes for nice brakes but it's definitely pricey.

Does anyone know how much you can feel brake fade with the electric ABSPowerBrake set-up? Just nervous on how it would mask it?

I like the feel with the 322 rotors and 993 big reds but a little power assist would be nice every once and awhile.

What's that supposed to mean? Care to elaborate on that?
