why would you bother with the hydro assist brakes? you have vacuum so just use a vac booster...

it just seems like hydro assist would be over complicating things... if they were a better setup, ford would use them on their gas motors

thats what i was questioning, whether or not it was even worth it. i have the vacuum booster setup already, and can lock up the 38s on dry pavement, so i was wondering if the hydro boost would be a significant increase in braking power.

imo, no it won't... if you can already lock up the tires, keep your setup... you can't get better than locking them up...

plus the hydro assist takes pressure from the p/s pump to operate, thus starving power from the motor... vacuum doesn't do that...

and like i said, if the hydro assist WAS better in any way shape or form, ford would put it on everything, not just diesels...

and to finish off, the reason ford DOES use it on diesels, is because typically, diesel motors don't create vacuum, therefor cannot run vacuum accessories

i'm sure they can be found on other vehicles, namely ones with forced induction, but they are mostly on diesels
