It appears that blueberry has a "51" tii brake booster and this raises a question posed concerning booster choices.  My apology in advance for the tangential topic.
 
Another '02er recently stopped me and asked about the booster on his car, but failed to post his query.  He said that his mechanic evidently replaced the "shorter" booster with a "longer" one and wondered if there was a braking performance advantage between the two boosters, or was the issue merely availability and possibly clearance for side draft carburetors.  He mentioned that he noticed the change as soon as he attempted to extricate his extra big battery from its tray and wondered why the task became more difficult and whether he now needed to remove the master cylinder for this move.  (I have not seen the vehicle) 
Prior posts on the topic discuss the vacuum fittings maybe booster orientation, but not some significant braking improvement realized by one style or size booster versus another.  https://www.bmw2002faq.com/forums/topic/137104-brake-booster-differences/    Limited experience with the smaller booster permits only a guess on my part.  Perhaps someone can offer a definitive answer, should it exist.

The one I have is a tii booster, the pancake looking one is a regular 02 booster. As far as I know there isn't a performance difference between the 2, I plan on switching to a tii booster in my 76 when I build the engine soon

Not to argue the point, but if both style boosters provide the same braking function, other than size/configuration (and maybe weight), why switch from the "pancake" version?

 

Thanks,

Because I'm going to switch to dual sidedrafts and you can't fit velocity stacks with the pancake one
