Fitting master cylinders that are 1 inch in bore, the Hydro-Boost Power Brake Booster Kit generates between 1,200 to 2,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. The kit generates hydraulic pressure via the power steering pump. Because the kit does not require a vacuum, an external vacuum pump or a small bore master are not necessary to fit it. This also increases the firewall and valve cover clearance, as well as frame-mounted clearance.

The company notes that the kit can fit into any engine that has enough space for a vacuum booster. Car owners can use stainless braided hoses or rubber type bracket to fit it in. The Hydro-Boost Power Brake Booster Kit converts the fluid pressure generated by the power steering pump into the pressure it applies to the master cylinder.

Hydro-Boost offers the kit with a one-year warranty but notes that the warranty is void if there's any metallic residue in the unit. In addition to the brake booster, the master cylinder and the mounting brackets, the kit includes a prop valve, a prop valve bracket and prop valve lines.
