Disc brake conversion for 66 Mustang

Is it necessary to have a power brake booster for the front disc brake conversion, or is a dual master cylinder work effectively. I have a stock 289 with automatic transmission. I plan on having around 300 hp when finished Thanks

No need for a booster, but it sure does help.

Re: Disc brake conversion for 66 Mustang

Thanks for the input much appreciated. I thinkI will go with just the disk brakes and dual master cylinder.

I used front spindles proportioning valve and master from a 76 maverick with '70 outer tie rods on my '68 coupe .. don't know if it would fit a '66 but it might.. works great. I left it manual too.. only cost 125$

I have SSBC front power disc brakes on my 66 and I have 1 master cylinder and a brake booster that came with the kit. I would say the booster helps make the brakes perform better
