I'd run the vacuum line from the intake manifold. You'd probably get a stronger vacuum, hence better brakes. I've owned vehicles without a brake booster & it's no fun. If the line from the intake doesn't work, put a vacuum canister in the truck. You can get them from Jegs, Summit, etc. for about $35-50. It just plumbs in & maintains a little pressure so it don't need a whole lot of vacuum from the engine when applying the brakes. A lot of old school racers use them. Especially on HOT street engines so they can keep the power brakes. Simple fix to old problem.
