Hey was wondering what is the best size of power booster to go with on a 1968 camaro with a big block and tall covers, what size will allow me to remove my covers as i have a solid cam, will a 9" or do i have to go to 7", i ordered a 7" from stainless steel brakes and i got a 9" in a 7" box, so i am not happy, but if the 9 " will work i will just ask them for money back for the miss boxing, i hate mail order on this type of stuff, please help, if anyone has pics of there set up also would be nice, thanks

Heres a pic of an 8" booster on a 69 big block with tall covers. This was before the blower and Wayne Due front end, but is the best pic I have because the engine was in the stock location. You could still get the drivers side cover off. I am not sure if a 9" would have made it as the 8" was close. It would clear the covers but I'm not sure you could get the cover off without moving the booster/master.
