The late Jim Albeck installed a US-made booster and master cylinder on his GT a while back.  The source was Engineered Components, who sells a "Generation 2 Street Rod Power Booster Asembly."  IIRC this is their part number EC-490 and the price was US$275.  This sounds remarkable given that a TR6 master cylinder at the club store is currently US$250.  Their website is .

According to Jim, the bolt pattern on the booster matches the JH casting.  However, you do have to buy/fabricate/modify the clevis that attaches to the brake pedal, which shouldn't be too difficult.  Also, the pipe fittings on the master cylinder follow US practice, so you'd have to install a couple of English-to-American adapters at a buck or two apiece, or make up some custom master-cylinder-to-PDWA brake lines.

There was a posting on this modification quite a while ago, probably in the Old Archives, which has a bit more information.  You might search there for the keywords "Holy Grail."
