    Vacum Pump

    Brakes a little "come and go" and I think it is due the vacum pressure....been researching many LSX built motor issues around town and on the net and find a simple vacum pump has really solved some issues due low pressure in a built motor....gonna slap this on the GTO and see what happens

    Sarge don't want to try a Vac resevoir first.....I've had it solve everyone of my issues as long as I have 10lbs to start with.
    Just an idea....Hell of a lot cheaper
    I'm sure the pump will solve your brake issue and it will free up a few ponies also!!
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Here I'll explain in detail....We've used a vacuum canister resevoir for years before a vacuum pump was a option.Crane,Comp, and Jegs just to name a few make these.
    They work off a one way check valve and store vacuum.....There fore when you need a "good" amount of vacuum when you hit the brakes it has enough "volume" to work the booster properly.
    So like I said when I have at least 10lbs of vac. at idle to start with than the canister is enough for the booster to work well without a vacuum pump.
    And if I only had 8lbs of vacuum at idle the canister wasn't enough.
    Sorry I guess you didn't understand the bit of slang that was in my response.
    The resevoirs vary in cost from $32-$80.....Which like I stated are way cheaper to get than a vacuum pump.
    Hope I cleared up the shit that you didn't understand!
