The Leed unit was the one I was looking actually, as it is apparently very quiet in operation. Would you recommend using this purely for the brake booster, and does that mean the booster uses just the pump for vacuum without needing engine vacuum any more?

It’s pretty quiet. You definitely can’t hear when the engine is running. Compared to the piston styles it’s definitely what they claim, 60% quieter. Yes no need to use the engine vacuum. It has a relay that shuts on and off as it requires vacuum. The manifold vacuum then is only used for the AC switch assembly, along with the three vacuum bladder actuators. On all of my cars at least one out of the three has been bad, meaning there is a constant vacuum leak.

K&D in America has these now. George figured out the stroke and pressure, then had a bunch manufactured with the label Jensen interceptor on them. Highly recommended.
