Yeah, not as intense as you though.

I don't feel like I own it until I pull it too pieces and put it back together.

Haven't posted anything for a while since work and life has been a bit full on, but have had a chance to do a bit lately. I recently bought tyres and finally but the girl back on planet earth. Very happy with the fit. Federal Super Steel 245 x 45 x 17 up front and 275 x 40 x 17 on the rear. Same as stock rolling diameter and everything fits without the engine in yet.

Bought a proper flaring tool online and did all the brake lines. Using a one inch master cylinder with booster. Contemplated hydroboost, but wanted to go down this route first. I also wondered what happens if in an engine failure, how a hydroboost would provide boost in that situation. If I don't have enough vacuum with this setup, I can always add a pump. I've always thought the brakes may take a bit of tinkering once it's running.

Looking good mate,

Pretty sure hyrdoboost has a accumulator setup that stores a bit of pressure in case of engine/pump failure. Much like a regular vacuum brake booster if your engine dies u get a few good pumps of the brakes before it goes back to "non-boosted" brakes.

Usually good for one solid pump or 2 at most if it loses oil pressure. Either way it just reduces it down to manual braking, you just have to step on it harder
