Major brake upgrade to chevelle

with the HUGE cam in the big block of the chevelle their isn't very much vacuum to run the brake booster. So you can guess that you get a great leg workout trying to stop the car.

We made the car go fast and needed to stop fast.

We installed a hydratech hydraboost brake booster. after installing the booster it looked so good that we couldn't installed the factory master cylinder. So we opted for the Wilwood polished master cylinder.

It looks great and the car stops on a dime. all you have to do now is rest your foot on the brake to stop the car.
