either late model f-body or s10 master cylinders bolt up but the f-body one is on a goofy angle so the s-10 is the best choice.

With B-body brakes, S10 master cylinder, and power boost you will have too little pedal feel and lock up the brakes (if you don't have a spongy pedal). The late model B-body (say 88 caprice wagon) master cylinders are the same externally as the S10 master. If you go with late model master cylinder you might as well go with a S10 booster. They are double diaphragm and some of them are small to help with valve cover clearance. I have 12" B-body brakes on my 87 S10 with the stock booster, 88 caprice wagon master, and it has the perfect pedal feel.

Will the s-10 booster be a direct bolt on? If not what will I have to modify?
