Anyways, do you guys have any idea on if I can use a mini brake booster with it? My friend brought it up, but all I can find online are the use of hydro brakes/manual brakes.
Yes it is possible, but it's going to be expensive and IMO not worth the effort and expense. Don't get me wrong the mods are great engines, but a lot more costly and complicated to work on. I would keep what you have myself.
You probably will need a mini brake booster or convert to the hydro brakes as the mod engine is much wider than the 5.0.
That's probably something you would have to measure for after the engine is in place to see if adequate room is available.
Your best bet is to go to the mod engine forums here and talk to some of those guys. I know there are several who are very knowledgeable about them and I bet they can better help you with any questions you have about them.
