When it comes to upgrading your classic car, many manufacturers continue making assembly kits a certain way because “that’s how it’s always been done.” But why settle for that? 

At Master Power Brakes, we’re constantly working on making things look better (and perform better), so you can get the best of both worlds. 

Case in point: our new Carbon X Brake Booster

Brake boosters are not known for being the sexiest part under the hood. But why can’t they be? We’re changing the game with our redesigned look, while still offering the highest performance quality you’ve come to expect from Master Power Brakes.

Cons of Standard Brake Booster 

Ugly Appearance

While the standard vacuum brake booster functions efficiently, it’s quite ugly and can detract from the overall flow and appearance of everything under your hood. The look consists of a stamped metal outer housing that’s fused together by a crimp, outer band clamp, or the two cans twisted together. 

While this may not seem like a dealbreaker, if we can make a product better, why shouldn’t we? We wanted to solve this problem and allow you to streamline the appearance of your classic car vacuum brake booster without compromising performance. 

Difficult to Hide

In an effort to hide its unattractive appearance, many vehicle owners have tried to mount the booster out of sight, only making it more difficult to access and service (when necessary). Alternative mounting isn’t easy; it’s painstakingly frustrating and requires a great deal of custom work. 

Pros of New Carbon X Brake Booster

Our Carbon X Brake Booster assembly kit consists of high-gloss outer carbon fiber shells holding the modern 9-inch, dual diaphragm internals. It’s all held together with several CNC-machined billet aluminum components, including two outer billet aluminum rings. This booster is a perfect choice for today’s pro-touring builds or any street rod application.
