manual master cly would work alot better but the one with the booster will work pedel may be harder to push i would remove the booster it will take weight off the front of the car

Hey Big Bird. I started out racing my camaro with the booster. Man the power brakes were "great". Just had to lay my foot on the pedal if I wanted things to happen. hahahahaha Got used to them, but had to pull the booster when I reworked the cage (bought existing car). I used the same master cylinder that was used with the booster and didn't have any problems. Had plenty of brakes. The only problem I had was to fabricate a pushrod, since the pushrod was attached to the booster and there was no ID machining in the piston like manual break systems. Everything worked out ok through and never had a brake problem. Just my couple pennies.
