    Default Thoughts... Electric Vacuum Pump for Brake Booster

    Anyone done a conversion to an electric vacuum pump? Thoughts? Pitfalls? Feedback? Experiences?

    I've often wondered about this myself.

    Seems like lots of new vehicles are set up like this. Not having any sort of issues, just looking to learn something new.

    Oh, and welcome to the site!

    ah, gotchya, and thanks..

    I've been (somewhat regular) on NATO (Turbocoupe/XR7 site) AS 86 XR7 5spd since '08, and of course turbododge (detobias) for longer
    joined here mainly to sell my XR7 but will jump in if I feel I have something useful.. my overall '4-eye' knowledge is pretty narrow (um 2.3t anyone?) but I'll try to help the community if I can

    so.. I'm guessing the new(er) cars which have Stop/Start (like my '13 HFE Ram) will have an electric vac. pump to operate the HVAC & other systems when the engine is 'off'; keep yur eyes peeled when junkyard shopping
