Default Installing Hydraulic assist power brakes

This Christmas I received a Tallon Hydraulic assist brake from my lovely wife. Started the install last week. Requires some rerouting of brake lines and I need to flush out the trans fluid I was using in my power steering unit. For the most part everything is fitting with alittle adjustment.
It will be nice to get my valve covers off without the battle with the old vacuum container and I can remove the vacuum pump from the car.
Unit cost $600.00 on Ebay (best price i found) and it looks like all the parts i need are included.
I will post some photos as soon as it is complete.

Why is "Patience" a virtue? Why can't "Hurry the f@#k up" be a virtue?

Tact is the knack of making a point without making an enemy.

You can get a hydro boost unit off of different gm models from the junk yards also. We grabed one from a astro van and put it on my buddys TA. These thing have great breaking compared to vac assit.
