I had a 2G dsm rear strut brace taking up space in my garage [I got it for free a while ago from a 2G dsm part-out, but never found a good 2G
], and I wanted more space, so I crossed my fingers, brought it outside to my colt, and it fits perfectly... I had to trim my plastic speaker surrounds a vary small bit [ I used a dremel], but it looks good, and if I had a cargo cover, it would cover it would be even more stealthy.
I got my hands on another "06 elantra GT booster for my mirage, so I can show you a comparison of the two.
Pictured above is the booster spacers, the silver one [on the left] is the stock 3G csm one, and the black one [on the right] is the "06 Elantra one.
Just by looking you can tell the elantra one is like 2-3mm shorter then the 3G csm spacer.

Now moving on to brake boosters...the 3G csm one is on the left, and the "06 Elantra one is on the right [middle in second pic] and for fun I threw a 3G eclipse GT booster on the tray and took a snap shot of all 3 boosters...but take note, the 3G eclipse GT booster, mounting studs are a lot smaller then both the csm and the "06 Elantra units, and no spacers are used on the eclipse one... now a turbo 1g dsm booster [not pictured] looks a bit like the "06 Elantra booster, but the Elantra booster is just a tad bigger and again the mounting studs on 1g [and 2g dsm] booster are shorter a lot like the 3g eclipse booster pictured above
, but they do have the same bolt spacing as a 3g csm just stud length is an issue on the dsms and 3G eclipse booster...
I found some more info on the "06 Hyundai Elantra brake booster.
"06 Hyundai Elantra booster specs.
It is a dual diaphragm.
Brake Booster Diaphragm Diameter (in): 8.75.
"91 Dodge Colt GL booster specs
it is a single diaphragm
Brake Booster Diaphragm Diameter (in): 7.6
From what I have read about brake boosters, the dual diaphragm is good to have when you have 4 wheel disc brakes, single diaphragm is better suited to a disc front/drum rear setup, or an all drum setup, so far thats what most articles on the subject seem to point towards, I might get some stuff to test, and then find out what my boosters true ratio is, but for now take my word that it's a whole lot better then stock.
More updates soon.
