As we are building our hot rods, we often find that there are a massive amount of suppliers and manufacturers that all claim to have the best product available. It can be difficult to weed through the crowd and see what really is the best choice for the consumer. One of the easiest ways to cut through it all is to look at the tenure of a company. Finding a business that has been in the industry for a long time is a good indication they know what they are doing. Tuff Stuff Performance Accessories is one of those companies.

Tuff Stuff Performance Accessories was started as a family business more than 30 years ago. Today they are a leading chrome engine component and accessory manufacturer and supplier. They have been in the business so long that they know a thing or two about accessorizing your vehicle. On their website, they host a “Product FAQ” section to share their wealth of knowledge with the public for free.

Here are a couple of the frequently asked questions, with answers, on their website for brake master and booster systems:

What if my engine has had a radical cam installed?
In this case you will have to check that you are producing at least 18” of vacuum. Your system may require a vacuum assist pump if your vacuum is inadequate, causing a hard pedal.

Why would I need a dual ported master cylinder?
We made our dual ported master cylinder so you can redirect your brake lines from the opposite side of the master cylinder. The ports on the other side of the master cylinder are then plugged.
