I think the addition of the hydroboost system could make the ole girl exceptional! Would a factory set up from lets say an 05 work on our 02? I haven't done that much research.
I've done quite a bit of research on it and yes, a factory Av setup should work fine. You need the brake pedal in addition to the hydroboost and you have to tap into the power steering pump lines unless you also get the hydroboost power steering pump. You have to tweak the firewall slightly to get the new setup to fit exactly. From my research, the bolt pattern on the hydroboost master cylinder is a little different than the one on the 02s.
The key to really good brakes is how much braking power can they apply without locking up. Larger diameter rotors and good pads come into play in making this happen.
We can always install larger brakes, however, their comes the question of custom bracketry for the calipers, and you would also have to install a different proportioning valve. I come from the BMW world, where I had 12" rotors all the way around and if you slam the brakes the seat belt rams into your chest. The AV compared to my BMW doesn't have any brakes.
when doing the gmt900 brake upgrade do the factory brake hoses fit the bigger calipers?
