Hydroboost?

Hey guys
I'm looking to put a hydroboost unit in the truck I'm building.
Just curious if there is any real difference between one from a 1995 astro van and a 2003 chevy truck. I can get either one for the same price from the wrecking yard that has them.
Will they both bolt up to a typical chevy master cylinder?
Thanks for any info.
Kim

Thanks fast68
The master cylinder I have would fit a 72 vette with 4 wheel disc brakes.
The mounting of the hydroboost to the firewall doesn't concern me because it is going in a 57 chevy pick up and will be mounted below the cab on a custom mount. I guess I could get the master out of the truck also but I'm not sure if it had 4 wheel disc as the rear is already gone.

i do not see the hydroboost from the astrovan being a concern. it is used all the time in the minitruck world on s10's. and the master cylinder that you have for the vette is the same style as the "universal" hotrod gm ones correct? if so it should bolt right up.

The astro van unit will bolt right up but the truck one is a lot newer so i would prefer it if it will bolt to my master.
