The hydro boost sits behind the brake master clylinder where the power booster sits on a normal car and has power steering lines going to it. Hope that helped.

Hydroboost brakes are run from power steering pump. You loose both you need a new p/s pump.

Beamer HID head/fog lights(bypassed so fog lights on with hi/lo beam), Armagard color matched spray in box liner. Installation all done by me, except box liner.
