Pressure reducing on mustang II rack?

I need to start working out the plumbing on my rambler for the power steering and brakes. I'm using the stock pump on the 94 Lt1 motor in the car. Also, I plan on using a hydro-booster for the brakes, so I don't want to reduce the pump pressure. I was thinking of the addition of a pressure bypass valve of some kind in the supply line from the hydro-booster to the rack and a return line to tank. Has anyone used these valves, and are they even necessary. Thanks.

Several of the Street Rod suppliers sell a r/p valve to use GM pump on Ford rack. In the old days we used to clip the spring. You should still have ample power for a hydro/vac brake system.

Check with Borgeson for a kit to modify the GM pump. They're cheap and very easy to install.
