Yes, its still enough for the booster but I did have some return-to-idle issues to work out too as hard stops would drag the engine down a bit

Good to know. I plan to run a VT booster, master and brakes and 260º @ 0.050 cam. Not sure what the vac will be like but hoping that will still be a lot better than the stock 1" VP "v8" brakes my S pack has which is way worse than the stock v6 brakes which already don't stop.

I remember the first test drive I missed the sellers driveway lol.

I use a 262° @ .050" cam with 106° lsa & still has enough for vacuum brakes to operate.

Awesome! Now all I need to know is if tall V6 rocker covers will even clear the booster :lol:
