One of the oldest past times in the long history of hot rodding is to take other components from different trim levels of vehicles and install them onto lesser-equipped vehicles for an upgrade. This is the same for the 1993 Cobra-style brake booster. Utilized in the 1993 Mustang Cobra, Cobra R, and the Ford Performance M-2300-K brake kit, the 1993 Cobra brake booster was the ultimate solution for disc brake conversions on Fox Body Mustangs. For years, Fox Body Mustang owners who upgraded braking components opted for the 1993 Cobra brake booster due to its larger diaphragm, providing a better pedal assist. The popularity of this brake booster can be attributed to its ability to maintain a factory pedal feel when running upgraded braking components, such as larger piston calipers or a rear disc brake conversion. The 1993 Cobra brake booster has a diaphragm diameter 8.90in vs the factory 1987-93 Mustang GT brake booster has a diaphragm diameter of 7.50in supplying better assist. To prevent the hunt for hard-to-find disc brake conversion components, 5.0 Resto is proud to offer this new 1993 Cobra-style booster for all Fox Body Mustang enthusiasts.
Committed to the restoration and preservation of Fox Body Mustangs, 5.0 Resto has developed this 1993 Cobra brake booster to properly restore your Cobra or Cobra R and ease the brake upgrade process for your 1979-1993 Mustang! Featuring a black e-coat finish, factory dimensions, and tolerances, this 5.0 Resto 1993 Cobra-style brake booster is identical to the original but utilizes brand-new components inside and out. All of the mounting studs utilize the factory thread pitch, which will allow for the original hardware to be reused. The actuator rod has the same inner diameter as the original unit, which enables the provided plastic bushing to install right into place and can be easily positioned onto the brake pedal arm inside the car. On the engine bay side of the brake booster, an adjustable pushrod allows for the proper length to be set and the correct pedal effort to be achieved per the application. A pre-installed rubber grommet and vacuum check valve arrive on this brake booster to ensure the proper vacuum is achieved when the brakes are applied. This 1993 Cobra-style brake booster accepts popular master cylinder options such as the SVO, 1993 Cobra, and 1994-1995 GT, making this a period-correct upgrade for your braking system. To ease final installation, 5.0 Resto includes the correct master cylinder and brake booster retaining nuts and the correct brake light switch hardware to allow for proper spacing of the booster brake light switch underneath the dash.
