Has anyone had luck using a brake booster and master cylinder from a Hemi Cuda? They use a 7" double diaphram booster and use a angled bracket to mount on the firewall. I was thinking that the combination of a small booster and angled bracket would clear my 440 valve covers.

Looks to have good clearance on the valve covers even without using the Cuda angle booster. Anyone try this product?

Marc, someone told me that it can be very dangerous to install other power brake boosters than those that are originally designed for our cars. Someone who installed it had to make the experience that his car brakes that brutal hard it was impossible to handle it. Just what I´ve heard.

I've seen many of these conversions, so it CAN be done.... I'm sure you will proceed with caution....
