More stopping power for lifted trucks...
Picked up a Vanco hydroboost system recently to go along with my AGR high pressure/volume pump and gearbox. With the pump and gearbox, steering was a lot better with my 38's for sure, and nice and tight. My buddy just bought a new stocker and still thought my truck had better, tighter steering than his, I agreed.
Now, the steering pump puts most of the new pressure to the steering but doesn't help the braking or hydroboost system at all because the ports in the hydroboost are only so big and will only flow so much. Anyone with tires bigger than 35's can relate to the braking on these. The pedal is responsive and starts to brake hard to about 1/2 push, then it kind of goes to the floor with no change, you got what your getting at 3/4 push of the pedal.
Well, I recently replaced my hydroboost with a ported Vanco hydroboost system. Vanco Powerbrakes.
Steering is actually a tad better at lower rpms, like idle, but just barely. Braking is now a similar fell from 0 to 1/2 pedal push, but the deeper you go, the harder it grabs. I haven't tried locking them up but it is definitely a lot more responsive and that last little bit in the pedal and chit is flying off my seat into the floor A LOT more when I need to stop the truck. Now, the front end actually dives a little on a hard hard slam of the pedal.
Keep in mind, I'm running powerslots / hawk pads as well, but IMO, the Vanco system probably should've been the first step. What good is a set of rotors if you don't have the pressure to use them properly.
