DUMB Question - Power BRAKE Booster

Busy freakin day at work. It's the power BRAKE booster. On the original intake manifold it apparently got vaccuum from the intake manifold but the Crossram manifold doesn't have any place to accommodate. Do I need to find another vaccuum source? Is there any vaccuum inside the valve cover? I could hook it into where the breather cap would go..... Need some help from somebody that knows since obviously I don't Thanks much.........

Re: DUMB Question - Power BRAKE Booster

yeah, i was wondering about your problem..the crossrams have a vaccum port in them....the thing is......now that your motor is designed and built to accomodate the crossram setup..does it have enough vacuum to run power brakes?

Re: DUMB Question - Power BRAKE Booster

Next would be to install a "factory hydro-booster" to work the brakes.

Re: DUMB Question - Power BRAKE Booster - PICTURE ADDED

Thanks for all the help. I'm very curious about the 'factory hrdro-booster' and where I might get info and buy. There seems to be a bit of confusion about the intake I'm using so I found a picture to clear that up. Again, thanks everybody, for the help.......
