Question The old man needs advice!

Can someone please tell me of any difficulties I may encounter using a brake booster/master cyl. from an automobile that had ABS. My project will have 4 wheel discs. I can get a booster/cyl. assembly from a 2002 GMC Envoy, and I think they have ABS. I know that there are new units available,but there is something in me that makes me want to try to adapt parts from other cars/trucks to work on my car. (Guess it is a 1950s thing).
I appreciate and value your opinions. Thank You!

no problems what so ever, the master cyl. converts your pedal pressure to hudraulic pressure,

The abs can, but usually does not modulate that pressure to prevent lockup indicated from a sensor, and is added to the hydraulic line somwhere between the master cyl. and the brake.

the master cyl. does in other words not have anything to do with the ABS and can be used on its own.
