    Why have it way up front when there is plenty of room.

    AK used to use the Marina servo and a friend of mine used an even smaller one from a Mazda on his Viper, worked great.

    Hmm been looking at remote servos and it appears that they only do single circuit brake lines which isn't ideal, there is one dual circuit servo availble but it costs £400!! , I think I'll try to find the smallest servo that will work, perhaps one from a small shopping car, Tinka any idea which Mazda he used?

    Marina pedal box and servo used to be the default for pilgrim and ram and a few others.... they are now beyond hens teeth to hold of however.

    If I did it again I’d go unservod. But lots of stop start, aggressive or track work may well be hard work for someone who isn’t, er, comfortably built.

    I'm quite sure it was from a Mazda 323 like one of these

    Tried taking pics but you can't really see much on them. If you want to take a look you are welcome to.

    Can’t you just get a set of manifolds made that miss the servo?

    I saw that suggestion on one of the rallying forums, might be an option, I'm going to have a go at making my own manifold and exhaust system, could all end in tears and a pile of expensive scrap but you've got to have a go!!, the smaller servo is more to miss the rocker covers, the manifold needs to avoid the steering column and servo so will be a bit tricky
