Post Vacuum Brake Conversion Kit

Was on the internet the other day and found a complete kit made by Master Power Brake Corp to convert the powermaster to vacuum. Everything in the kit is claimmed as new. The brake pedal assembly has to be drilled rather than replaced with one from a Monte. Anyhow is anyone using this system that can give me feedback
TIA

Bob

Bob,
I have no experience with that system, I bought all my parts through a local salvage yard and I must say I am glad that I did...I would have done the conversion years ago if I knew how much better the braking would be...

Well, the pedal is the only thing that is really unique-everything else can be picked up at a parts place.

Lawrence Conley usually keeps conversion kits in stock...seems like about $300 and includes the proper pedal.
