Question Brake Vacuum Canister

I am losing vacuum because I am running a rather large cam. The problem is that this is affecting my brake performance. I spoke to a guy who told me to install a Brake Vacuum Canister.
Even if I find out where to get one, where to I install it into the car, how difficult would it be to put in???
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Brake Vacuum Canister

Mine cost me about $130 from better brakes in cheltenham. They are easy to mount. You will need to buy some propper vac hose. You connect one end from your inlet manifold to the canister. The other end goes from your brake booster to the canister. One of the plastic valves will need to be drilled out a little so it flows in both directions. You can mount them in the engine bay or under a guard. Will help 100%

Thumbs up Re: Brake Vacuum Canister

Thanks guy's!

This thread has been sitting here for quite sometime without any responses.

So, in short, it fits "inline" with the original brake vacuum hose.
Great, I'll be fitting one as soon as.
