S13 compatible brake boosters?

I’ve read all the posts on this subject and feel there’s got to be better info out there in 2019.
Would appreciate anyone’s help.
My oem booster had vac leak. 30yrs old..it had a good life I guess.
Replaced with an oriellys China part for 240sx application even tho I knew that it would most likely fail early, I needed something now.. it lasted 4 days. Complete failure. Stiff pedal, no brakes. Ridiculous. Luckily they have warranty and can get my money back. But availability is horrible. Not one store anywhere has an s13 booster available.
I did find almost all of my caliper slide pins were seized... could have caused the booster failure? But it’s all fixed up now.

I figure there has to be some other cars that use a brake booster that fits? And has more availability?
Going to call around on s14 boosters today.
Thanks

...You guys do require working brakes in a car right? Lol

Unless I’m the only one who doesn’t have the amazing luck of a booster lasting 30+ yrs
I did see someone use a Toyota Tercel booster with modifications to the mounting bolts? If I knew what year.. I’d try ordering one of those?

Z32 boosters will bolt in. I am using an auto Z32 booster with the Z32 master, and all calipers. Its wider, and you will have a hell of a time replacing the clutch master if you have to. Also, pulling the turbo/mani/turbine outlet pipe together sucks as it eats up room forward and to the sides.

Well the 91- Tercel booster fits great. Just make sure you get a NON abs version.single diaphragm. Mine is not, and I had some issues. But it’s still doing the job for now. Also the vacuum port is on the opposite side, so just need longer vac line is all. I like that it’s a bit smaller in total outer diameter than the 240 booster.
I’ll give another update when I find and install a non abs one.
I am running an oem 240sx brake master cyl.
