I need your advise, recently I purchased your brake booster (BTW very good quality and workmanship), haven't gotten around to install it yet. Can't wait though. My Fiero is an 88 with 17" wheels. I've been contemplating 12" Corvette rotor, is it necessary?

Thanks



Try the booster first, then if you feel you need better brakes then upgrade rotors.

Also starting to get interested in this. Would shipping 2 to Ontario be cheaper? You're not too far from GTA or London, right?

Got the booster yesterday. Looks great, and I can't wait to get it installed. Since I already upgraded to larger calipers and master cylinder, this booster will compliment nicely. Thanks!!

Yes I need cores, so I can keep this going, bigger brakes for everyone. Yes these are the S-10 style boosters, they are the biggest style that fits.

I finally got my car back on the road this week and got to try out the new booster. Wow. I did the 12" rotor upgrade at the same time and the car now has lower, wider, stickier tires. Wow. I thought my eyeballs would end up on the dash. Easy to modulate, in fact, I was so busy evaluating other changes I made to the car that I forgot about the brakes at first. They feel no different from stock until you lay into the pedal.

Another thing I noticed: I autocross this car and heel/toeing has been next to impossible for me. No problem now. It took so much pedal pressure before I just couldn't spare part of my foot for the accelerator. Now? No problem.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to bringing us this upgrade. Best bang for the buck ever!
