while your thinking of updating to disk brakes, think boneyard. I picked up 
an 03 Mustang hydroboost from the jyard. using the stock pedal and swing 
arm, I made a bracket to mount it in the stock location. so filling it will 
be the same, I would need to re-adjust the location a bit, but due to carpet 
& interior I will probably use the plastic squeeze bottle. my truck is far 
from being done. you can see the bracket and hydroboost here
the small size of the hydroboost allows it to sit next to the tranny. total 
cost was $175. not including all new stainless lines.
