    Thanks for the replies. I've decided to replace the factory booster and try to use what I have. What I've done is cut the mounting bracket off the old booster and modified it to weld onto the 4th Gen booster. I also cut the push rod off the old booster, and the end of the new one. Then threaded both ends to 3/8-16 and used a coupling nut to join them. Just a bit of welding to do and it should be ready to install.

    Final update. The new 4th Gen master cylinder, Booster and 6th Gen Brakes work awesome. There is a nice firm pedal feel and the car stops better than ever.

    Does the end spin freely in the booster? Mine did in my manual cylinder so I welded the rod to the sleeve on the pedal side. I used a lock nut on the booster side of the sleeve and left some threads for adjustment. Not being a completely solid rod was a little unnerving for a crucial part. What did yours wind up looking like?
