s**t... turn your engine off while in motion and then try your brakes. You will get picture very soon lol

a lot of hot roders like to hide the brake booster between the chassis rails, not sure how it easy its is on a newer car, but you could try asking on a hot rod forum if one exists...

Why would you want to????

Are you going to drive around with no bonnet to show you got no brake booster. Forget it.

You would have to have 2 of them, one for the front brakes and one for the rear brakes. The old brake systems were single master cyl setups, so it boosted the whole system, then later, they boosted just the front brakes, mainly because they had just started to use disc's and had tandem master cyl's.
