you talking like, regular power brakes? You're going to have to fab up some firewall bits to bolt on the brake booster...or at least drill some new mounting holes and whatnot.

Go to the autowreckers find, preferable a GM, find one with hydro boost and grab it. You'll need the booster, master, lines, and ps pump. Once you have all that I can show you how to do eet[cheers]

When Al at Canadian 4WD did an article on doing a hydroboost swap he used one out of an astro van. I think the GM hydroboost boosters are all pretty much the same just the firewall mount and push rod change for different applications

if you have 4wheel discs you can use the whole hydro boost out of a superduty ford
