I have a 1966 mustang that I am building for my daughters first car. I put a Heidts front suspension in it, dics brake 9" and a 86 SVO motor and trany in it.Now I need toget a power brake booster and master cylinder. I was wondering what year of brake booster and master cylinderfrom a newer car with 4 wheel disc brakes will work in it?
I have a similar setup (Heidt's), but with a 4.6L motor and Explorer rear-end. I used the booster from an 89 Fox Mustang with V8. My master cylinder is from a 96 Explorer because I need the lines to exit on the driver's side (motor is too close). The Explorer has 4 wheel discs. Iused a Speedway proportioning valve (~$35, samevalve as Wilwood but a lot cheaper). I bought Mustang Steve's plans and pin to modify the pedal assembly (but I modified much more to use a hydraulic clutch). See his website. He can also give you the correct master cylinder (www.mustangsteve.com).

I put a 89 power booster, a 2001 master cylinder and yes I put a 300+ hp 2.3 Turbo SVO motor with a G3/4 turbo and 52 injectors. But before I let my daughter drive it I will take those injectors out and put the stock 38's back in it, the stock turbo back on it and takethechip out of the brain.
I havethe hyda-boost out of a lincoln that I got the disc brake rearend out of.To get it to bolt to the fire wall I would have to reweld the lincoln section of the fire wall in. It will not fit in the stock location (indention) in the Mustang. That and the lincoln peddle assembly will not work under the dash becasue the wiper motor is in the way. The lincoln has a lot more throw in the peddle then the stock mustang does. Originally the plan was to use the hyda-booster!
