Are you going to convert you auto to a stick?
Good point! If Iroc R/T is requesting a clutch cable, dont forget to ask for the clutch cable bracket with clip that holds that cable onto the drivers strut tower.

My bud Kurt who converted a 89 Daytona TI auto to a 5 speed also ran into problems with the brake booster. I think the brake booster on the auto's are larger in diameter and actually hit the clutch cable support bracket. He had to find one from another 2.2 car that was smaller.

I have done several conversions and never had issues with brake booster clearance for the clutch cable. Nor have I ever had problems with stalling after a conversion while continuing the use of auto cal. But, some bugs present themselves for some people/cars and not for others. Anyway, PM sent on parts.

Ok sounds good. The experience I have had with the auto cal stalling was with my friends mini. It would stall when coming to a stop with the ac on.

This is Kurt, the person Steve was talking about.
The clutch cable bracket had to be shaved at the bottom for the bracket to fit. Ideally, find a single diaphragm brake booster for 15/16" rims cardone part number 503173 (with master cylinder). The problem is this booster seems to be R&R only. You can use the buyers guide on rock auto to find applications for that booster to find one in the junk yard. I had to pull one out of an 89 Aries.

You will be able to tell if you will have clearance issues if the booster is a dual diaphragm. These boosters are larger in diameter and aren't molded around the booster check valve and master cylinder mount. They stick out towards the two holes for the bracket on the driver side strut tower, and look more like a perfect cylinder.

If I remember when I get off work, I'll post pictures of both boosters.
Good luck!
