The Avalon booster bolts onto the firewall and u just got do a little mod on the pedal side clevis pin mounting.

Search amsmike's threads on here, he did a writeup on swapping to a normal vac booster using Avalon parts.

Ok so... I had a 2J ready for this car... But I just leakdown tested it and the head is warped pretty good. Soooo I have to send that to the machine shop.

No cool updates.... Haven't really had much time to work on it.
