Hydro systems are designed for one ton and larger trucks. I think it would be a overkill on a street rod. A good power brake system is plenty for a light car.

I have mounted one in a 66 ipmala and was VERY impressed with the performance, they are especially good if you are running a big cam or a blower, in which case it is actually the only booster you can run if you dont want to use a vacuum pump. If you are running under floor mounted pedals it is also adviseable to run a hydrobooster as it is smaller and wont get caught on curbs and so on, but much more importantly, there is a big safety difference over vacuum boosters mounted under under floor, as a vacuum booster will suck up or aspirate water in the atmospreric vent on the back site of the diapghram when it is in water spray and being used, and if you were ever to try to brake in freezing conditions and the aspirated water was frozen solid you would be in for an expensive surprise when the pedal refused to budge. ( i am by the way installing yet another hydraboost from an astro van in my 32 roadster) and you can email me at : jakob@regeur.dk if you have any questions.)
