    Hydro-boost

    I have a 2000 GT and ordered a new hydro-boost. I was wondering what the full process of removing the hydro is? Is there a bleeding process? Do I have to get new fluid? Is there gaskets, o-rings...etc I have to replace? Please let me know the steps and other resources I need. Thank you!

    Hey everyone, I had a little bit of a odd question. I have a 02 gt and I have a hard time spending 1500 for a big brake kit.
