Anyone try an electric brake booster?

Looking around for a brake solution for an upcoming ls swap. Has anyone tried one of these? There are a few companies who make them. Here is an example:

Any thoughts?

That think is huge. I think you would have clearance issues with that.

I'd rather figure out a hydroboost setup than mess with that... Or E34 remote booster, which is what I went with.

I thought it looked kinda small. Definately smaller than stock e30 booster. What about a remote booster like this?

Is that the same as the e34?
Thanks

You can also look into under dash brake boosters.

That looks promising. Is there enough room for something like this? Any brands in particular people are using?
Thanks

I remember seeing someone here on the forum that did the under dash booster. I believe that Ergen Motorsports in Europe made some under dash kits for our cars using stock parts. Try reaching out to them to see if they still make the kit.
