Given the info you've provided and the checks you've made, if it's not the booster, I'm at a loss.

It shouldn't cause the problem, but have you checked the vacuum check valve between the engine and the booster?
Yeah, I checked the valve. All is good.
If no useful help from CPP, I guess I will have to take a gamble and try a different booster from another source. If all else fails, hydroboost it.
