Anyone ever use this
to operate vacuum assisted power brakes? If so, what are your opinions on the unit and it's operation? Thanks, Chuck

A high lift cam in a performance street vehicle can offer up great sound and excellent performance. But if your car or truck has power brakes, a minimum of 16 inches of vacuum is critical to proper brake booster operation, something not always present if your camshaft features enhanced overlap. The COMP Cams Electric Vacuum Pump ensures that your vacuum stays between 18 and 22 inches so you never have to worry whether your brakes will be there when you need them.

Triggered by a vacuum switch included in the kit, the COMP Cams Electric Vacuum Pump requires a 12V negative ground system and only operates when vacuum drops below 18psi and then turns off over 22psi. The kit includes all of the parts necessary to install the unit along with wiring, hoses and brackets. The system utilizes a highly efficient electric pump, relay switch and distributor with vacuum switch, which should be mounted close together for the most effective performance. t
A buddy of mine has one on his jeep. Different brand. He turns it on when we go wheel'n. That way if his engine stalls, he still has good brakes.

Is it very noisy? Chuck
My diesel truck has a vacuum pump since diesels don't have a manifold vacuum. There are lower cost options for these pumps than $300+ dollars.

I just used the Comp write up. The same pump is on ebay for $200. I suppose a salvage pump from a diesel is worth looking into. Thanks for the memory jogger. Chuck
pump from a diesel is belt driven, that takes HP
