1980 - 1996 Ford Bronco / F-Series Truck Hydraulic Brake Assist Retrofit Kit
*Compatible with original master cylinder
*Features an adjustable brake pedal rod
*All engines with power steering pump in stock locations.
Commonly referred to as "hydro-booster or hydra-vac" over the years, a high performance hydraulic brake assist booster is a powerful alternative to a vacuum assist type booster. This type of assist unit uses the hydraulic pressure from the power steering system to provide a potent brake pedal assist. Just to name a few, there are a number of Original Equipment Manufactures that are using these styles of units on their vehicles:
-'96 and newer Cobras and all V8 Mustangs (though a much less powerful version!)
-Most 2500 and 3500 Series GMC / Chevy Trucks
-Dodge Ram equipped with Cummins Turbo Diesel
-Ford Super-Duty Series Trucks
-All Hummers - including the H2
Hydra-tech Braking Systems guarantees its products to be free of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year from date of purchase. Also, in addition to the warranty, we also back all of our products with a "satisfaction guaranteed or your money back in full" policy!
If you are having troubles with your vacuum assist, due to a high duration cam not building enough vacuum or turbo / supercharging, then yes - this kit will really put some very strong and reliable brakes "back into the picture".Upgrading to one of our conversion systems will be straightforward and simple to install design, along with a tremendous improvement in braking power. Most "low pedal" and "pulling under hard braking" complaints with performance cars stem from having worn master cylinders, air in the system, ailing flex hoses and calipers, excessive play in the wheel bearings, or worn steering / suspension components. This kit will NOT remedy these types of problems.
In most cases vehicle braking improvements are vast, with "brake fade" becoming "a thing of the past". Be aware that you should stay mindful of the temperatures a high performance braking system can generate. If it is understood that brake fade is the relation between thermal efficiency vs coefficient of friction, (to cause a reduction in overall braking when hot requiring more pedal pressure to achieve the same amount of braking), then one could easily see where higher available line pressures help to raise the thresh hold of "real world" brake fade. Two major contributors leading to brake fade are boiling of the fluid and actual rotor / pad temp overheat. Hence the recommendation of upgrading to a brake fluid with a higher boiling point and air cooling ducting for maximum braking efficiency when running our systems on a road course.
Designed to be used with stock master cylinder.
