My W124 300E twin turbo needs appreciably more pressure on the brake pedal than either my W124 E320 Coupé or my W126 300 SE. The braking is fully effective, but definitely requires more effort. All cars are properly serviced. My mechanic can't pinpoint why there should be this difference, although wonders whether the turbo (Garrett) system may have some bearing on it. Any views?

I see no difference between stock and after the Turbotechnics install.

Possible a problem with your brake vacuum servo circuit ?
