    Making an new mount for the firewall side is no big deal. The problem is, the thing won't like up with the master cylinder. I can't think of a way to make an adapter for that, hence me returning this unit.

    As soon as I find a unit that lines up with the Saab master cylinder it is game on. I could care less about the firewall side lining up as I have a local redneck I'm going to get to make a new mount that will line up to the booster.

    The next booster I am going to try is from a 1994 Nissan Sentra. The firewall bolts won't line up but the master cylinder bolts might.

    My local junk yard has a million or so cars on the lot and a 94 Sentra happens to be one of them. I plan to visit the boneyard in a few days to check it out. I'm bringing a master cylinder, tools, and a tape measure. I'm going to find something that will fit.

    The good news is that brake boosters cost $25 at the junk yard. When I find a booster that looks suitable, I will purchase it and test it on my car. Once I know it works, I can use it as a core towards a lifetime warranty unit at Autozone.

    Incidentally, you bullies are calling me names but Matt gave up on finding a cross reference. Its a shame, because he would have been a pro at designing a new mount. Instead, I'm going to have to hire the local redneck welder to make one for me.

    You'll do nothing of the sort.
