I converted mine to power also. I got my booster from Npd you'll probably need to make new brake lines

Re: disc brakes

Make sure you get the small body power brake booster, you can run into issues with it hitting the engine if you're running a v8

Re: disc brakes

The dual bowl you have may not work with the booster they sell you. Just make sure you let them know which bowl you have.

You can get into issues dealing with the brake push rod going from the pedal through the firewall and into the booster.

For a few extra dollars, I'd get both together. Lesshassleand headache that way.
Make sure you don't spill brake fluid on your paint!
