If you do a search on the web on hydra-boost and jeep. I know I saw a swap for a jeep somewhere when surfing on brake stuff.
GM motor homes have used the system for years, and on some one ton pickups.
I've been reading the Smokey Yunick books, and he invented the system. I don't think he perfected it just figured out the basic design.
Bendix tried to sue GM for patent infringement on the system but Smokey provided proof he had done it before they did, but started but not finished the patent proccedure. He ran out of money to finish it.
My motor home had the system and it works well, but with not the greatest pedal feel. At least not as good as a vaccum system pedal feel.
There is a hydraulic accumulator in the brake system to provide maybe one stop if the belt get's thrown or a hose breaks.
As I recall the master cyl looks pretty stock on it. It's probably a larger piston size than a Camaro uses, but I don't know for sure.
A safety issue is, without the engine running on a heavy motor home, it would be hard to hold it on a hill once the accumulator was discharged.
I read somewhere on the net about a motor home engine dying and the thing took off down a hill! The old timer nearly got a heart attack from that one!
We have a similar system on a International Harvester truck and it has a small electric motor/hyd pump, that provides assist until the engine is running. With diesels, you have no vaccum to run brake boosers, I guess some use a vaccum pump to do it, some use the hydra-boost.
