The Porsche 944 booster is probably a better choice. It's larger than the E21 booster but slightly smaller than the original booster. But it bolts up (just need to shorten shaft and rethread) and you can keep your stock master cylinder.

Have you used it? How does a different booster change the pedal feel?

That's all we use nowadays when we build a 24v swap. Pedal feel is similar to stock.

OK Thanks for the info, I'll check it out. Happen to have a part number or model year (NA or Turbo) to get for the 944 booster?

I used an Audi booster and MC. I just ran a search to see which one I bought years ago when I did my swap, of course now there's a thread/how-to on the conversion! Didn't exist when I did mine...

Yeah already made that decision. It's not worth the effort or money IMO.
