I have seen several mentions in magazines about a brake booster from Trans-Am racing for classic Mustangs. Does anyone know of a web page for this company or someone that sells this part?

Thanks in advance

They sell it directly or you can ask them for a local distributor.

Has anyone tried out the new power brake boosters for 67-68 that don't require changing the brake pedal?

Pricewise I think its cheaper to go with the new ones than to get a rebuild, pay the core, and buy a new brake pedal. I just don't want to have to tear up the firewall or cut and flare brake lines to make it work...too much effort.

Don't know but they repo the pedal for about 95 and a midland booster is available. I think that I'd try to stick with original. With a good booster it works good! I had power drum brakes on mellow yellow and they were great! What a lot of people don't know is that a good power drum set up is as good as power disc, particularly with rear drum set up that you have. The advantage to disc is driving in water and fade. Unless you're going to go racing, drums are fine. Those complete kits are not cheap Try MAster Power Brake. I don' think the kit is going to save you any money.
