10" Brake Booster

Hey guys. I am having an issue with my massive factory brake booster. The pedal won't return and on top of that i have to take the thing off every time to adjust lash because my valve cover wont come off.

I want to go to a 10 inch booster. Polished aluminum thats not breaking the bank. Everything in my engine bay is aluminum and polished, powder coated black, ceramic coated, or gold anodized. I want to keep the theme going. Any recommendations?

I have the CPP 13 in breaks up front. So she stops.

Re: 10" Brake Booster

I am sure some others will chime in about 10" boosters, but many have gone to the hydraboost systems for their brakes. http://www.hydratechbraking.com/Hydr...genF_Body.html

This will be an upgrade I will most likely do in the future....not any time soon though....

Anything worth doing is worth overdoing...a little's good, more's better, and too much is just enough

Re: 10" Brake Booster

I really have no need for a hydraboost i have enough vacuum and the engine comparment looks beautiful I do not want to mess with anymore lines.

BTW their line set is ridiculous summit sells the tubing and fittings for maybe 1/5th the price.

I know.....just using them as an example....I still use the original sized booster so hopefully someone will give you an idea on a 10 incher.....
