[quote quote=15140]Here is a question, that I don’t see answered…. What about the vacuum booster. What sixe ,and where is this get mounted. Second question…..Wilwood has a remote master cylinder…..thoughts?[/quote]

The car weighs 2600 lbs. Why do you need a vacuum booster? The stock booster was under the dash. You’d need to find one of those if you must have power brakes. I converted my drums to dual circuit using a Fox-body M/C with 7/8″ bore. Original was 1″. What a difference! Pedal force is noticeably reduced. Definitely don’t need a booster. Just be smart about picking an M/C.
