Brakes

If you have power steering you could just switch over to a hydroboost power brake system.

You could make them but they are readily available thru swap meets and parts suppliers.

A much easier method is to add spacer plates under the carbs they are available with the vacuum port and without. This will also improve the low end torque by keeping the fuel cooler and adding velocity to the runner system. They are not cheap but it is much less risky.

DoubleVision Shoot for a runner if you can, close to the plenum as possible. I`m sure you could likely place it in the plenum as well. I`ve seen them on the rear of the plenum under the carb in many cases. Just make sure to check it very very closely to make sure it`s not going to cause any interference problems.
