Nice!

I love the way hydroboost setups feel compared to weak vacuum brakes.

$800 if you buy a kit

Score! I thought those things had a steep core. Good move if you had the room. Vaccum pumps are insane cost.

Makes no sense to mount a pretty aluminum master cylinder to a hydroboost. He said he was saving hundreds of dollars using something other than a vacuum pump.

Just hit it with a little cast iron gray paint and it'll look brand new.

I grabbed a hydroboost from a Silverado at Pull-a-Part and got pressure hoses for an 80's Oldsmobile diesel wagon from Rock Auto. It fit my '92 Caprice wagon like it was made for it. The great white whale stops pretty good now.

The thing with the Hydroboost is when the engine stalls the pedal goes rock hard. At least with vacuum you still get one chance.

I'm ASE C1, P2, Kia and Ford, AZ, Advance and Owrecks and retired from a brick and mortar parts store. Thats a cute picture, how about a part number that bolts up to a hydroboost hot shot. I use to like your ass around here but in the last 4 or 5 years you've descended into the prick/troll attitude. For the second time in the last few months, phuck off.

I'm thinking aftermarket vet. master.
but I don't know. what it is. but that is what it looks like.

even better is the hydro, you can if you fear rock hard brakes if engine stalls is use a electric water pump motor (if junkyard ccrawling. bmw's /etc oem water pump motors. among others) and then adapt the motor to spin the p/s pump
to turn the power stearing pump so no belt/power drain/loss from the engine turning the pump. also making mounting the pump ,an anywhere ever you want it if it fits deal.

The core charge seems low. when I looked at the squarebody hydro set up the core charge was stupidly high.
