[Chrysler300] 3rd update: AAJ brake install on C300



First, thanks to Marshall Goodnight for putting a vacuum gage on several
C300 engines. The vacuum from Marshall and others range from 14" to 17",
with 17" marginal but adequate. My car sees 14" - 15" under most conditions.


I wonder if the factory took the cam into account when designing the system?
I also wonder if the K-H system was only used for one year -  then to
mitigate a problem we started to see Vacuum canisters on most of our cars.


So, after 120 miles on the pads and considerable research I am down to 3
known options: 


1.   Add a '56 style vacuum canister which may help a little in city driving
but the 14" is still a problem?

2.   Add a vacuum pump ($200+). These are marketed specifically for cars
with radical cams. They make noise but are switched on at 17" and run to
keep the vacuum at 21" . See: http://www.getdiscbrakes.com/evp01# 

3.   Live with the system as is which offers about the same braking ability
as the '55 factory set up but with the safety of dual M/C and no fade.


Opinions please.  


Thanks  .Jack
