VLT BRake Booster Issue

Hey Guys,

Is the VL n/a and VLT Brake Booster braket on back of Booster the same?

I know the metal bracket on the struct tower are different which I have the VLT one.

Problem is seing that the VLT brake booster is Double Diapram hence longer

The 1" Master Cylinder on the VLT Booster now goes past the threads on strut Tower and the bracket to bolt is up doesnt line up?

Is there a different rear bracket between the N/A and VLT Brake Booster?

Is the VLT and VN or VP V8 Boosters the same? As I'm not 100% if the Double Diaphram booster is from a VLT or VN-VP V8

Are you sure you have the correct strut tower brace? Yes with the double diaphragm booster and the 1" master will go past the holes on the strut tower hence the different strut tower brace.

Maybe it is just a very tight fit ,may have to play around with it and maybe bend the bracket that goes on the strut tower a little..

Damn it..
