Description

If your vehicle's been upgraded with disc brakes and a gnarly high-performance motor, it may have a hard time generating enough vacuum to operate the power brake booster. And, less vacuum to the booster can result in poor braking which makes for a wild ride and a potentially dangerous situation.

To operate properly, a power brake booster needs at least 16 inches of vacuum at engine idle. If the vacuum drops below 16 inches, the booster looses power and seriously affects braking performance. With the SSBC Electric Vacuum Pump Kit, your power booster always has enough vacuum to deliver maximum braking power.

The pump mounts inline between your vehicle's intake manifold and power brake booster. It works on 12 volt power and the kit includes everything you need-pump, switching relay, vacuum line and mounting insulators. Best of all, your SSBC Electric Vacuum Pump Kit is backed by a 1-year warranty.

I don't mind the noise it makes because I can't hear it when the motor is running. It works great plenty of brake. It was hard to mount because it has to be horizontal I fabricated a bracket and mounted it on the core support. I can feel the vibration but I can live with it if the car will stop. Overall very satisfied good quality a little expensive.

Vacuum pump was relatively easy to install. Could be a little smaller, tough to find a good spot to locate. Somewhat noisy, but if you have a loppy cam and loud exhaust you'll never hear it. John

Found this item cheaper somewhere else, however, I have dealt with AutoAnything several times in the past and always have been please with their professional service. I called and asked for a price match. It was NO hassle at all and they honored the lower price. Awsome friendly service and super fast shipping!

I'm very mechanically inclined and I've done all the work on my car so far the biggest piece of junk is this thing, it doesn't work properly even after trouble shooting it several times it still doesn't work properly, I'm returning it, if that's even possible.

This application was for an older TR6 with very low vaccum from the engine. Pump was added to improve braking with the vaccum booster. Solved the problem. Limited installation space under the hood on the car but was able to fit it in w/o problem. The pump is a little loud but small concession for the results.

This system gives me brakes that I can stop on a dime now, but it is extremely loud. In fact, had I known it was this loud I would have gone a different route. I need to find some way to insulate it better. I also plan on building a box to put it in to help quiet it as well.

The pump is LOUD! Sounds like a bilge pump on a boat. Good thing my engine is loud or I would be taking it back off. It serves the purpose but the noise is so loud that I would consider taking it off if I could find an alternative.

Had booster issues due to cam and high performance. You can hear pump kick in and maintain correct vacume. Brake pedal is like new. Nice to have stopping power. Good product works well.

The SSBC Electric Vacuum pump is a good source for vacuum when you have high lift cam and very little vacuum at idle. The installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. The pump starts building vacuum immediately and the shut-off switch is consistant, but the noise and vibration is very heavy. I have mounted it in the LF fender behind the headlamp on this 1969 Chevelle. Even with a 'thumpy cam' and performance exhaust you don't need an 'indicator light' on the dash to let you know when it is running. I don't know if an installation on the actual frame of the car would dampen the harshness or not. The brakes were assisted no matter how often they were used and gave a confident feel at each stop.
