    Remote boosters

    I've converted my mk2 cortina to 4 wheel disc
    VE Commodore front/EL Falcon rear, i have a Wilwood dual mc and an adjustable proportioning valve

    now the mk2 never came with boosted brakes and theres no room on or behind the firewall to fit a conventional booster so the only option is VHxx of some sort

    I've had nothing to do with these and have no idea what i need for a 4wd set up, all the units I've seen are either drum or disc/drum

    Shirley it stops close enough to the tyre limits now, does it need a booster?

    Is your new M.C. single or dual circuit?
    If dual then what is the sit?
    Lots of minis & mokes including a G13b powered Sports Sedan, a couple of Swift Gtis, a Goggomobil, Porsche 928S, Polo Gti, BMW 540i, a WRX and a few others.

      Yes MC is dual circuit and tyres are 205-225 15 nankang AR-1

      Im not sure if the system actually needs a booster but im sure it wouldnt hurt to have and I dont want to find out it was a "should of done" thing after I plumb the brakes or get caught out when its time to engineer

      Id prefer to keep things clean and simple and not have a booster but id also like to play it safe

        Spoke to a brake bloke about something similar for the 2002. They have a shitty remote dual booster set up. I am considering doing away with it and may be going to rear discs. Internet 'folklore' say remove the boosters, use a smaller master cylinder and redrill the brake pedal to change the pedal ratio slightly. I may use a VH44 on the front circuit for some additional assistance.

        My thought was try it without then if additional assistance is required plumb in a VH44.

          Ask your engineer now.
          Even if you are happy with a firm pedal, NCOP has a maximum force limit for the application of the brakes.

            Yep
            Then you need master size , caliper piston sizes and pedal ratios to know where to start on the 2 boosters you will need

              Can you use the escort style booster or will it not fit the cortina?

                No room in the bay for any type of booster
                Have basically given up on the booster just going to go ahead with the brakes and see what happens
