There is more there than meets the eye.
And.....No, there’s not always hydoboost.....I have electric power steering.

You could run stand alone hydroboost using a Volvo EPS to push the fluid. No need for that though. In the old movies the cop car Fairmonts had no problem locking up the brakes...or screeching around every turn they made.

Must've been the early 89s sound effects. Lol

in reality I don’t need anything more than what I’ve put back on the car. This engine makes plenty of vacuum at idle, and doesn’t suffer from the typical high overlap cam/ low vacuum scenario that a lot of V8 guys experience.

I am working on a 2j in a Lexus (in Trinidad) stock idle speed is 950-1100.. just an FYI I know yours gets upset sometimes at the speed we set it to.

I wish new members knew that when you say “Don’t do that”, how much experience you are speaking from. Also that you are trying to save non dedicated, skilled or certifiable ones a whole lot of trouble.
