    Hydro boost pump has a slightly larger reservoir, and an additional return nipple. And the mountins bracket is a little different. I tried putting a H/B pump on with the stock brackets, but ended up screwing up the pump. Now I just brazed another nipple on the stock pump and it works fine.

    I put a Hydro rez on my non-hydro pump and increased the flow and pressure by doing hte mods on WTOs site. I do have contact issues with the rez and the head but nothing big. I am thinking of finding a round pump and rez from a diesel with remote rez.
