There are worries out there of converting Ford trucks to Hydro-Boost, and there are some out there who have been enlarging the ports on the brake unit, but none of that matters. They have been trying to increase the pressure coming out of the power steering pump, but that is causing problems. The real issue is that hose coming out of the pump is only an 1/8th of an inch, which is very restrictive. When you buy a Hydro-Boost from us, we supply a hose with a large diameter hole, and the problem is solved. There is no reason to try and create a higher performing power steering pump, or so called "porting" the Hydro-Boost. There is more flow to the Hydro-Boost and the steering.

About SPE∑D:
We build and Rebuild endless varieties of new and classic brakes for every type of vehicle and trailer. It started with George Sweeting as Power Brake Service in 1950 who worked for the railroads and Lockhead, then run by his son Bob Sweeting who learned about modifying cars while drag racing in the 60's, and Bob's son Matt Sweeting (who grew up in all of this) is now running SPE∑D, a company that designs and fabricates good looking and well working automotive products.

PBS was a Warehouse Distributor for Bendix for 20 years until they sold they sold their Power Brake Division to Bosch, which is when we became a special modification contractor with Bosch for their power brakes - which come on most new American vehicles. Our ability to design brake systems, rather than just replace rotors and pads, has taken us to amazing places and we have worked on amazing projects. We have:

Hydro-Boost Conversions
Vacuum Brake - Conversions, Upgrades, and Modifications
Wilwood and Brembo Disc Brake Kits
Master Cylinders
Stainless Braided Hoses
Classic Car / Muscle Car Stock Brake Restoration and Rebuilding (Corvette, Camaro, Chevelle, Mustang, Ford & GM Truck, Mopar, Rolls Royce)
Light Truck / Medium Truck Hydro-Boost Replacement Parts and Conversions
Medium Truck / Heavy Truck Hydro-Max, Air brake, and Air-hydraulic systems - and Hydro-Max Conversions for the obsolete Delco Hypower
Conversions for the obsolete Buick Grand National, T-bird SC, Land Rover, Jeep and all other electric brake booster / electric powermasters
Modified brakes for Altered Bed Fleet Vehicles
Modified sensitivity for the Handicaped
Disc/Drum and Disc/Disc Proportioning Valves

We have worked on everything from propane powered trams to roller coasters, cranes, parade floats, multi engine street rods, classic european cars, double decker buses, and a Freightliner racing truck. Our favorite is working on big engine muscle cars that make too little vacuum and need more stopping power.
