smallest brake booster

Does anyuone know of a really small brake booster for an FD? I really need a smaller brake booster to take the place of the stock brake booster on the FD.

Or, is there one that I can mount in a different place than the stock one?

You can't just move the brake booster. The booster is basically a large diaphram mechanically attached to the brake pedal and master cylinder. Engine vacuum on the diaphram helps actuate the master cylinder as they are mechanically linked. If you move the booster you now have no way of connecting it to the pedal.
