Default Running with out a booster

So I have been redoing my engine bay and overall set up and I have a bad booster, i was wondering if any one has set up one of these cars booster less, like with an electronic booster or a wilwood set up.

Are you inquiring because you want a smaller profile booster, or are you just trying to save some coin and not run one?

You would have to determine the master cylinder bore increase needed.

I ran my turbo car without a booster for ~ 6 months because the diaphragm started leaking. Your leg will get stronger.
If you want to completely remove it and run tandem MCs, that's also a possibility. Nothing available that's truly bolt in though, so there will be fab work needed.
I have a drawing somewhere of the firewall plate I made. Bolts up to the stock booster location and allows for a tandem setup with a 6:1 pedal ratio.

smaller bore equates to more pressure

Didn't someone fit a hydroboost setup one time?

No its not about saving coin was just wondering what the options were besides straight manual brakes or a booster, always thought the booster was kind of ugly and already have it out while I am redoing the bay.

How does the hydroboost feel? Were there any really difficult parts about getting it too work?

How's the pedal feel? What it a bitch to set up or not too bad?
