I tried this post in the Brakes, Suspension & Steering forum but I got no response, So I thought some of the Pro Touring guys may be able to help. I have a 67 with a LS3 with custom coil covers and I am getting ready to install my 9" single booster and master cylinder that came with my SSBC. disc conversion kit. The booster just hits the coil cover. I called SSBC. and they said go with what ever fits in a single booster, if I go with a duel there may be clearance issues with the master cylinder hitting the hood due to the duel being about 1.5 longer than a single and the Camaros boosters are tilted upwards. An 8" will clear my covers, I was wondering if any of you are running a 8" duel and how the clearance is on the stock cowl hood thanks.

I don't have an LS3, but I do have a small block, with cowl hood. I did a conversion on my 68 Camaro and went with the 8 inch dual booster. The supplied "one size fits al"l bracket put the Master about 1 inch above the fender line. I really don't know how they come up with some of these kits.
I returned the bracket thinkiing it was the wrong one. The angle from the firewall was just too severe on the bracket. I explained the situation to the supplier and he found one for a 64 full size Chev that had almost no angle. It worked perfectly. I have also seen other guys who used the same kit, use washers as spacers to decrease the angle.
All I can say it that the 64 worked. I will try to hunt down a picture and post it later.
My kit came from The Right Stuff Detailing. It was about 2007, and things have changed on these kits. I probably should have gone for a more stock looking booster but I was not going for originallity. They work really well.

Why do you think they put so much angle on them from the factory, maybe more clearance around the steering box and exhaust?

I want to get input from guys like Stewie thats running them and if they did not have any fitment issues I could spend about 120 bucks and be done instead of paying 900 bucks. Thats hits the camaro budget hard but if I have no choice I will concider that option. What would I need to do a hydra boost set up for the 67 and LS?

Wow that is a sweet looking engine. I ordered a set up from Right Stuff, a duel 8" with a slime line master, I know it's not as small as your master so if it will not fit I will order the one you have from summit you have plenty of room. By the way is that a DSE wiper motor I have a issue with my stock wiper motor hitting?
