86 Monte SS universal brake booster mounting bracket, where can I get the one I want?

I have a universal brake booster and master cylinder setup (9") going into my 86 Monte. Offhand I think the booster bolts are roughly 3" apart (less than 4", exact distance doesnt matter for this question). The universal booster drops directly into the existing firewall holes as an exact fit, but, since the master cylinder is straight I need an ANGLED mounting bracket to level it all off.

Where can I find a chrome angled mounting bracket with the mounting holes for the booster AND firewall at the same distance? I want to just drop bolts through the bracket into my firewall instead of drilling new holes. I cant find a bracket that isnt smaller on the firewall side

I bought the universal booster without the bracket because there wasn't a bracket that matched my bolt holes. I figured I'd find the correct bracket later.

I tried there too. There's no correct booster for my setup. Nothing's stock. Brake rotors and calipers are different so I need the booster I have based on general requirements. Isn't that why we modify cars so we can deal with these silly issues? Lol

Almost any gm oem booster and master cylinder wouldn't require a bracket because gm was smart enough to offset the brake fluid reservoir height to compensate. The guys that make the billet or chrome master cylinders haven't yet figured this trick out yet

what are you running that you need this..
some are running c5 brakes on 2wd spindles and use g.m. parts..
is the fancy master just for looks??
I'd think any mashine shop could make angle blocks to mount the booster to level off your master.. then z the rod under the dash.. as the angled spacers would change where the rod came through. or put it at an odd angle..
will the booster run out of room before you get the master level??
good luck
