Hydroboost line question

I have a 87 which i am swaping in a 02 Silverado 5.3 and have 04 van hydroboost. I cut the firewall out of the 04 taking the boost and pedal pump and lines as a unit.

I am going to make some pedals maintaining the 04's ratio with a bell crank letting me go 90 and have a long rod pushing the hydroboost master which will be located behind the glove box.



Line wise can I eave the power steering pump in the 5.3's stock location on the drivers side with long lines feeding the hydroboost?

Or would i be better off moving the pump to the passenger side and have shorter lines feeding the hydroboost and longer lines going to the steering box?

Placing it on the passenger side allows for shorter high pressure line lengths. But if it is not going to matter much then I would perfer to keep the pump in the stock location not messing with the belt at all.

I dont have any extra steering boxes and should replace the one i am running now. Is there one I should run with that 04 pump/master or will one for a 87 be good.

Re: Hydroboost line question

I kept my stock steering box on my 81and the 02 LS pump is just fine running it and the hydroboost...I'd keep it on the driver side...just to make it easier to plumb the steering box...the longer lines to the hydroboost wont matter
