    Don't see any problem with that, other than the linkage for the pedals, but you fit that V8 in there, so you won't find much trouble in fabbing the pedal gear...

    Also you will have to fab a drilled metal bracket to bolt the booster from behind with the original bolt pattern and then around it to the firewall, and don't forget to devise a way to route the vacuum hose through the firewall to the booster ;)

    My dad has an e28 with hydraulic assist brakes. They feel AWESOME. If you can make that setup work that's definitely the way to go.

    Maybe you could install the booster behind the firewall, under the dash, with just the reservour sticking into the engine compartment, I looked under my dash and there seems to be room there for the booster.

    Shit! sorry I just didn't even think it was RHD, well, is there room on the right side?, I think that with the intake out of the way maybe the right side would be a logical location for it, and ditch all the linkage. (mabe it's harder, ut it's worth giving it some thougt).

    Just remember it's alot harder for us RHD guys, the booster is still on the left side and it has a linkage that runs across the inside of the firewall from right->left.

    Actually you are right, the whole pedal rack would have to be fabricated, but it looks simpler than remote mounting, taking into account where his intake is and the limited space.

    I really doubt you could fit the booster on the other side of the firewall and not have to put in all new pedals and everything up there...

    The Tilton and willwood setups look good. Anyone got prices?
    Have a look around on ebay, it'll probably be cheaper from a retail store here in aus/nz.
