People commonly use the 7" GEO Metro booster swap as it is very small but it's lacking in assisting long hard stops, I was looking for something a bit bigger.

After looking through 100's of options I came across a Subaru WRX booster which is also a Dual Diaphragm, but only half as thick.
This is enough booster and master for the 4-piston Brembos that come OEM on the Subaru's, so it will be miles better than the GEO would be.

GEO Metro booster is a 7" Single Diaphragm
Ranger booster is a 8.8" Dual Diaphragm
Subaru booster is a 8.6" Dual Diaphragm

The Ranger and Subaru master cylinder both have a 1" Bore

Although they have essentially the same size diaphragm the housing's overall diameter is much smaller, as well as the obvious depth which fit perfectly leaving plenty of room surrounding it.

My credo
What's the worst that could happen?
Talented -- and certifiably insane.

Just catching up on this thread. Mad skills, which sadly, I don't have enough time left in my life to accumulate.
