Brake booster, smaller/simpler

Postby LS-Gun » Tue Apr 04, 2017 1:29 am

1993 s10, ls swap, headers and a forged motor a lot of nitrous. PITA to pull plugs and put wires on them, want an alternative to the stock s10 brake booster. Looking for simplicity and a smaller unit for easier access to the plugs, wires, steering shaft, etc. Installation help and part numbers appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Yup manual brakes here. Used an adapter and moved the rod up on the pedal arm and all good.

Hydroboost requires a power steering pump though. 8)
