    Has anyone run these inconjuction with one another? If so, is anything I need to do other buy the parts for hydro boost and the hyro assist steering. Reason I ask is because, corect me i f I'm wrong, they both run of the power steering pump? If this is correct I would think there would be a lot of heat generated. What do you guys think?

    I see some folks end up running a second pump, one stock pressure for the hydroboost and one higher pressure for the hydro assist. Second pump could go where your AIR pump was.

    I donno from personal experience, as I've only messed with hydroboost brakes, but they ARE picky and aren't always happy about modded pumps, I've found that much out.

    Do a search, look at Willswanter's posts, you'll find some good stuff.
