You can fit the Wilwood master, but you would need an adaptor for it. I've fitted the Wilwood master, but have gone booster-less.

If you're spending coin on Wilwood you probably wouldn't be considering a booster

True, but in terms of a street car I do think my car would brake a bit better around town with a booster.

Apparently the VY/VZ booster and master cylinder, with Wilwoods is the sh!t.

Wilwood callipers are not ADR approved but can be engineered as long as they have dust boots

I can't find any information on the master cylinder, I would imagine you cannot delete the brake booster and I can't see why you couldn't get the wildwood master cylinder engineered.
