Hydro-boost

I am getting ready to replace the hydro-boost in my truck. Does anyone care to elaborate on this and tell me what all this is going to involve and how long this is gonna take.

It’s easy, separate the master cyl from hydro-boost
Leave master cyl lines connected and just leave it hanging
Remove the hydro-boost pressure / return lines
Remove pin from brake pedal
Unbolt it from the fire wall

Check the wires at the brake switch connector while you have it off. They are bad to break at the back if the connector

Good time to flush the power steering fluid too

It was done to my truck but I opened my wallet and dumped the contents on the counter at the shop that did the work.
