Power brakes

I think someone was talking about this before but here goes. I'd like to keep my floor mounted pedals but still have the advantage of power brakes. Anyone done this? I've heard about remote boosters but can't find anything on them. Any help?

Re: Power brakes

I am planning on doing the same thing only I am going to use the GM hydraboost setup, the scout guys do this conversion all the time due to the limited space in an 80/800 with a V8. I already have a power steering pump on the 4.3 V6 and its way to hard to do away with it with that serpentine belt.
Have you thought about power steering? I was looking at the power steering setup used in the early corvetes or T-birds, it has a control valve that is moved by the draglink and a hydrauic cylinder that mounts like a steering stabilizer. I think this setup will work well with the (weak) ross steering gear.

good luck, jjc
