What is wrong with our present vacuum system? I do not use the vacuum tube in front of the rad but just run them directly off the motor without a problem.

the headlight doors on the 'vette are just a little slow.....
the headlight doors on my trans-am are another story. i might have to turn them on 2-3 times before the right side opens.
why convert?? is the vacuum system that hard/expencive to fix??

I plan to convert mine to the electric open as soon as get to that part of my remod project. I have converted my vaccum brake booster to the Hydra-Boost. The less I have to depend on engine vaccum the better. That way I can use any cam I want, and not worry if other components will work or not. Just my .02
