To answer some recent questions,

"How long untill you ship the booster after I order it?"

Once payment is received, I will have your new one in the mail the next day, sometimes it takes two days.(depending on my schedule)
Shipped with tracking number too

Thanks, it has made a huge difference!

I had planned to add bigger brakes just to get the car to stop, but the combination of this booster and a new master cylinder have the car stopping pretty well. Thanks again for offering this service to fiero owners!

I installed the booster on my 88 GT with the 12' vette rotors and stock calipers with the relocation brackets. This booster is fantastic and an easy install! Sending the core back tomorrow so someone else can have some fun. John

I'm considering putting one of these on my track car. After my tires heat up it requires a LOT of effort to achieve lockup.

Has anyone been using these in a race car or for track days? If so, questions for you: How is the pedal modulation near lockup? Does the increased sensitivity make it harder to brake at the threshold? Any other comments?

I haven't tried one at a track but, I noticed when I did mine, I had another Fiero with a stock one. I noticed to be able to stop fast as I was getting used to in the bigger booster, That on good stock brakes, it felt like I would almost lift myself from the seat standing on my stock brakes so hard. With the bigger booster I don't have to spend as much attention on braking now. Hope this helps some.

I installed new rotors, brakes and hoses last winter but only got to drive the car several hundred miles, this year. The brakes have always felt spongy to me, COULD THIS HELP MY PROBLEM? After reading numerous articles it sounds like it might could you or anyone else give me a little insight into my situation..

Make sure your E-Brake is adjusted right as http://home.comcast.net/~fierocave/brakes2.htm
It makes a HUGE difference, it make the braking happen more at the top of the pedal and helps gets rid of the spongy feeling.
Your E-Brake should be solid at just a few clicks, not all the way up and not work.
This should give you a good hard pedal. Now the bigger booster will make the most difference.
Otherwise the bigger booster will help your brakes, but not solve your spongy problem.
