On my buggy I was planning on running tj booster/dodge mc because that’s what I had in my Jeep and it all worked perfect.  The only thing is now the motor has a cam so I’m worried it won’t have enough vacuum to work. 

So now I’m thinking about sticking hydroboost on it.  One of the units from wod or Vanco that are set up for high flow.  I read about some fluid problems but it seems like many are using hydoboost without issues.  Is anyone running the wide open or Vanco kits?  Trying to find out what the difference is between them and if others have had problems. 

Running 14 bolts 3/4-rear 1-front calipers, tsp 228 cam, psc p pump to 2.75” de ram with a heat sink cooler.

I have two rigs using superduty hydroboost and master cylinders. One has stock gm 60 calipers front and 3/4 ton rears. 2nd has 3/4 ton front and rear.  Both are stock "low" flow units with stock gm pumps supplying the oil flow and 2.5" steering cylinders.
The only issue I have ever felt was on the Jeep with a 7.3cc orbital valve , racing in 3rd gear and low engine rpms and turning as fast as I could, I could feel the pump flow being down. If I was at a higher rpm or turned slower there was no issue. Never and issue with braking.
I think a high flow pump would fix my issue.
