I'm interetsed in your booster, but I have a few questions:

Do you need to have a brake 'upgrade" to notice a difference?

I have an '87 GT with factory fronts, and Grand Am vented rear brakes. Takes a lot of pedal pressure (more than I like). Will your booster help with this?

How difficult is the installation? Is it a simple swap? (aside from the denting). How long of a job would you estimate for someone with "average" mechanical skills? (I can change my oil, swap brake pads and spark plugs, but that's about it )

Thanks.

you just have to undo one chip holding the rod the the brake pedal, inside. Remove the 2 bolts holding the brake master to the booster, you don't have to disconnect any brake lines just move the master forward to clear. Remove the 4 bolts holding on the stock booster, pull out the stock booster. Test fit the new one, see where it touches, remove, dent, repeat. (I do it untill you can slide a peice of paper between the booster and the car) Then bolt the new one up, DON'T forget there is a pushrod that goes between the brake master and booster.

And no you don't need bigger brakes to feel the differance.

I'll be wanting one of these hopefully by August. I assume you're going to continue to offer them or is your supply limited?

My supply is limited by the number of Fiero boosters I have. As I use both the bigger one and a Fiero booster to make one complete unit.
I haven't done a count so I don't know how many I have, but there is a limit. At that point I will have to start charging a core charge, but so far so good.

Cool. If need be, I have my Fiero booster that I can send to you when the time comes.

I'm interested, but I've got a few other things I need to complete on my Fieros first. Here is a question, with the "improved" brakes in the '88 model, was the booster the same as previous years? (I've got an '86 and a '88, was wondering how much benefit the '88 would have)

The 84-87 and 88 are the same size booster, so the bigger one would provide the same % gain over the stock booster.

One of our local club members has an '88 and allready did bigger rotors and when he did the booster upgrade he said "it was the best upgrade he did, night and day differance"
Thats the great thing about the booster upgrade, it doesn't matter if you have stock brakes, aftermarket brakes, an '84 or an '88, it goes along with all combinations and the differance is massive.
