New Universal Land Rover Hydro-Boost
This NEW Hydro-Boost, hydraulically powered brake booster, fits Land Rover vehicles. There is normally a tight fit on these vehicles, so we offer two options that will cover your setup. If you have enough clearance from your fire wall forward, you can select the standard unit, the Hydro-boost is about the same length and diameter of a dual reservoir master, so check the space you have. If you don't have the room, then just select the remote mount option which allows you to mount the unit anywhere on your vehicle. The unit pictured is the remote mount booster, the firewall mount has a more conventional flat bracket. It comes in standard black but chrome and powder coat options are available. It uses New Bosch brake components, we are contracted directly with Bosch and can guarantee authenticity, no one else can.
The Hydro-Boost is smaller then the 7 and 8-inch boosters and generates 1200 to 2000psi to the calipers. Many masters can be fitted to it, from the 15/16-inch to 1 5/8-inch bore sizes. It is powered by pressure from the power steering pump and requires No Vacuum. Most performance modifications made to engines rob vacuum, leaving a fast car with no brakes.
The advantages are that no "small bore" master is required, firewall and valve cover clearance is increase, and frame mounted Hydro-Boosts are the same width as a master cylinder giving additional exhaust pipe clearance. The Hydro-Boost can be fitted anywhere a vacuum booster will fit.
It can use stainless braided hoses or rubber type. Brackets are available for most applications, we engineer new ones all the time, you can call us to prototype an application for anything you do not see posted, and we have a set of 2 bolt and 4 bolt universal mounts that will fit nearly anything.
