The Vanco Universal Remote System© puts out almost three times the braking pressure
of normal vacuum assist units. Our system is recommended for extreme
braking & vehicles with no room on the firewall. The Remote System©
works with 2 wheel & 4 wheel disc & works off your beefed up
power steering pump. This is a complete Kit, Hydroboost, Master
cylinder, and Hoses. Our system is 4.5" in diameter. The Remote System
also mounts anywhere on your vehicle and is 21" overall length.

are hydraulic units that work off your power steering pump. It's like
using a hydraulic ram to operate your master cylinder. The idea is very
simple. They put out enough pressure and volume to make any current
brake system stop the vehicle you're driving.
boosters put out between 1,000-1,600 lbs of pressure to your brake
system. The hydroboost puts out between 2,400-3000 lbs of pressure to
your brake system. This is basically giving you the power to stop the
vehicle. It's the actual clamping pressure your calipers or wheel
cylinders have to clinch onto the rotor/drum.
have a shaft in them that directly operates the master cylinder. So
when you are applying the hydroboost you only move the brake pedal 1/16
of an inch before you're applying the master cylinder. We also
incorporate a much bigger master cylinder then a stock master on most
vehicles. The combination of these two things severely shortens the
stroke it takes to make the vehicle stop. The entire full stroke of a
hydroboost is only 2.5 inches. You actually come to a full stop in your
vehicle within 1 inch of brake stroke. If the booster should fail you
get one power brake application. After that it reverts to true manual
brakes. Since the shaft directly operates the master cylinder a failed
hydroboost is twice as easy to stop then a failed vacuum booster. It
will be a hard pedal, but foot pressure will work.
though they put out all this pressure they are not sensitive. The pedal
feel will be firm, with the more pressure you apply the greater braking
force you get. It is something you want to get used too. If you've
never driven a vehicle with a Hydroboost, it gives you braking pressure
you've never had before. We recommend driving the vehicle with this
upgrade a week or so before extreme use to get used to the performance
