    Brake Booster spacer???

    So I have been working on replacing the brake components on the hako and the latest purchase was a new booster. Well I ripped apart the old stuff to install the new components last night only to find that when upgrading to the 7/8ths components the booster won't just drop in... I see that victory 50 makes a spacer for this, but I don't see that part for sale by itself? Has anyone done this install? Did I just waste about $350 on this part?

    Here's the problems I'm having:

    bolts for firewall are way too long
    The booster sits right against the sidewall
    Looks like the hard lines will be a bit short now
    Even with a spacer it looks like it won't sit flush, it will be cocked a tiny bit to one side

    Anyone else tried this?

    Ah! The factory made one for the B210 that is just a tad thicker than that. Any B210s in the JY there??

    Since I already have the booster the only thing I CAN do is buy the spacer and hope it resolves the fitment problem.. Guess I will post Pics when I get to work on the install

    well my spacer came in andf i went out there today and did the install, it fixed the big gap that i had, but i had to relocate one of the hard lines from one side to the other since its such a tight fit. BUT i now had the bigger booster, and the bigger master cylinder, and the pedal feel is awesome.

    next up will be clutch master/slave replacement, and hopefully i can pull the engine over the EXTREMELY harsh winters we have here in Northern Japan, and have the bay painted and cleaned.

    i cant believe the link is still there.
    i bought the bigger one cause i plan to upgrade to 4 pot calipers.

    the spacer works great, but i still haven't driven the car, need to buy clutch slave/ master, but someone pulled out in front of me and i couldn't stop in time, so my S15 is in bad shape. getting it appraised for repairs, i plan to sell it as soon as its fixed so i can do all the work i need to do for the Hako.

    no drifting for me anymore.. BOOOOOOOOOOOO
