Yeah, I can't have my truck down for more than one day. That's why I haven't done mine yet. Hope you get it done when you get the time. I can't believe that nobody else has done it here......

Can you see anything different compared to yours? Ordered for diesel, power pedals?

It just arrived last night. The only difference I see right away is that one of the bolt holes is offset for the hydroboost booster, and the booster pin is mounted about an inch or so higher. Looks right to me. I don't know when I'll have time to put it on.

You know, in all of this thread I have yet to see anyone say "I switched to hydroboost and the difference is mindblowing" Is it worth it? Having more braking pressure applied to crap rotors/pads isn't really going to help. My brakes sucked so I switched to slotted and drilled rotors and pads. The difference is amazing and I bet it was cheaper than a hydro swap.

Thats because nobody here did the swap yet. And the hydroboost difference is only from the diesel to the gas trucks. Soooo many on other sites have done it with a ton of success. I have 8 piston calipers and very good rotors and pads on my X but i want some better stopping power.

Id also bet if you drove another X with the upgraded components you would probably see and feel the amazing difference just compaded to yours. Oh, put my 6" lift, 37"tires, and all 5 batteries, amps and my 12- 12" subwoofers in the big box on your X. And when it weighs a little over 8500 pounds before the 34' travel trailer, you will understand why we want better brakes. I know its not for everyone but some just want better. Remember, rotating mass plays hell on brakes. My X stops way better when i just swap the stock wheels and tires back on.

Just feel the difference from when you dont have your trailer and boat on your truck. Thats the difference from when your truck weighs alot less. It stops way better.

Hydroboost conversion done. Took about 3 hours from poping the hood to finishing putting up tools and spreading oil dry. I only drove about 1/2 mile from the farm shop to my house, so I don't have much to say except the p/s pump is loud. I can hear it in the cab; it sounds like a supercharger. haha. I think the truck is a little faster....

I'm going to sleep, but just in case somebody wants to know, the components required are:

1. hydroboost booster
2. (2) 90* steel lines with braces
3. booster to master cylinder pushrod/spring/clip assembly.
4. new power steering line from pump to booster from V10 F450 with hydroboost
5. new power steering line from booster to steering box from V10 F450 with hydroboost
6. 2004+ diesel power steering fluid resevoir
7. rubber fluid return line from booster to resevoir (I used the discarded vacuum line)
8. brake pedal assembly from a diesel.

Costs:
1: $400+ New hydrobooster with pushrod spring clip assembly from Ford
2: ~$50 90* Steel lines with braces from my neighbor's parts truck
3: ~$50 new power steering lines from napa
4: ~45 new fluid resevoir from Ford (I know, can you believe it?!!)
5: $135 "Power adjustable pedals" brake pedal assembly from Ebay

Total: approx $680
It could be done considerably cheaper if one were to buy a used booster off ebay with the 90* lines and pushrod already included. That would knock about $500 off my total.

I'll post some pics of the completed conversion up later.

Nice. Glad it worked. Does it affect your steering at all? Drive it some mord and compare the stopping power. I think the only thing i wouldnt need is the pedal assembly because i dont have power pedals. I just hope the ps pump is ok.

Well you're probably right, it probably wasn't worth it. I already have a set of slotted cryo treated rotors from A.R.T., but they arent really slotted anymore since I've had to turn them so many times.... So I thought I'd try something else.

Brakes are substantially more responsive, and it takes much less pedal effort to do the same ammount of braking, but its hard to say if the brakes have more stopping power. I didn't want to leave you folks hanging, but I haven't been driving the truck hardly any because I've been drilling wheat. I also have a brand new set of Toyo M55's on the truck that cost over $2,300 so I'm not in the mood to kill them by sliding them on the pavement. I'm also ticked off by the annoying supercharger whine.

Here's the pictures I promised. I know they suck. I'll post some better info when I'm not as tired, and I have time to play with the truck some more.

I just took the truck on a 300+ mile trip. The power steering pump whine is horrible. The truck used to be super quiet. If I'm over 75mph the tire humm and wind kinda drown it out, also as long as the engine is ~3,000rpm or above, it isn't noticable.

I don't know if I have a problem, or if all super dutys with hydroboost make that drone and the noisy diesel engine just drowns it out.

You shouldn't have any whine.

Check the fluid level.
