    Seeing that Ford never offered power brakes with a manual transmission Maverick/Comet, your looking at aftermarket.

    Nice friendly response there BBMS18 So you can’t tell what a Hydro Boost brake setup looks like ??? Sorry I didn’t spell it out for you INDIVIDUALLY
    Works good on my Comet it was just a visual option for him an I figured if he was curious he might ask about it .....of course not as politely as you did.

    Only problem w/ the HB is towers will have to go. Nice option but, a lot of work, structural changes needed.

    Didn’t hurt my little kid feelings lol
    And actually.... I used a oversized aluminum master cylinder so I think people could make it work with the tower’s in. But it is a project that not everyone needs or wants . Towers are out of both my Comets which gives more options for a lot of things. But the HB is worth the little extra money to me for performance and just trying different stuff for our cars
