I put a small piece of steel fuel line over the brake pedal pin to take up the slack going to the hydroboost push rod, then snapped clip on.
Bleed the system, enjoy breaking your neck.
hum...

I've never been on the hydroboost bandwagon. But ill dig some more on options. Cheap is key at this point, Id like not to dump 300-400 at this deal if I can avoid it.

what master did you use?- suppose I could not be lazy and actually go dig back through your thread lol

I got the hydroboost unit w/ bracket and hoses for $26 (2005 Tahoe Z71), hoses go right to the steering box, the high pressure line may screw into your pump as well, don't think GM changed them. I didn't change a single thing on the hoses, but my engine already had the LS pump w/ hydroboost return, just an extra nipple in the reservoir.

The high pressure line goes from pump to hydroboost, then there's a high pressure line off the HB that goes to the high side of the steering box. That screwed right in to my zq8 box that Mikey had sent me. I thought it was some seriously complicated thing but it couldn't be more simple.

1980 Corvette master cylinder. It worked with my brake line fittings, lined up with no adjustments.

My concern is my car being LT, the p/s pump is on passenger side. Which sucks, andhas a remote reservoir.

Not sure I wanna dive into running all the lines, Because everything would need modded for length at a minimum and go under front of motor.

You could use the high side you already have, fashion a female to female coupling, then T the returns together.
