Small Diameter Power Boost

I am looking for a smaller brake booster for my car, does anyone know if one is made to fit our cars.

I believe they run from powersteering pump, I do not have one plus the only thing I am running is an alternator.

Re: Small Diameter Power Boost

you won't find a smaller booster than the stock one... if it's taking up too much room, then figure out which master cylinder would work best in a manual setup and go that route.

It says it is a 8 inch booster, I believe ours is a 8 inch as well, so It will not be any smaller
