    one more thing, the size of the orignal master cylinder was 3/4, whereas this one is 13/16. this thing makes some irritating noises in the engine bay since the rubber seal of the air intake and the pastic bottle slide over each other. i need to get rid of these unwanted noises

    the booster has a bolt-on fitting; it cannot be tilted. some alteration needs to be done to the air intake and i m a little reluctant to do so. though i m thinking of getting some other type of air intake, but i don't know which one would be the perfect substitute for this one. maybe the air ntake of the JDM alto might work

    @devilz

    This seems a serious matter to me if booster is rubbing with Air filter, bcuz air filter vibrates with your engine and this vibration will eventually break the oil reservoir bottle and can cause serious consequences (you know what will happen if bottle breaks, there will be no brakes!!!!!!).

    Get it fixed immediately to avoid any disaster. i would suggest try fitting booster from some other car, may be alto japenese one etc. If no alteration found, i would suggest come back to original hydraulic brake system, bcuz safety first.
    Prepare for the worst, Hope for the best.

    Agree with Afarooqi......very rite sir.
    @ devil
    Better get intake or get ur original system back....
    @afaroozi.
    with a stage 1 intake it may occupy small place and let this booster relaxed , but will it fit on it ??

    @afarooqi, thx mate for the concern. this is an orignal japanese brake booster for mehran. some other car's booster won't fit in it. getting it fixed as soon as possible is my top priority because what irritates me the most are the unwanted noises coming from the engine bay

    @scorpion
    i cant say about the stage1 whether it will fit into mehran or not.

    @devil
    you must also get checked ur engine foundations, bcuz agr naram hogayee hogi to engine ki position sahee nahee rehti, may be us say he masla hal hojaye.

    anything can fit in mehran's engine bay, n i mean it literally! installing a stage 1 air intake would result in more fuel consumption and its air filter element won't be readily available(i-e if i ignore the cost factor!). i already went over this idea but dropped it due ti cost issues

    @scorpion90, that's an OEM air intake.
    @afarooqi, the foundations are perfectly fine.

    @devil:
    than u will have to make some alterations to the air filter box, a good denter might help you with it, by making the slight space with the hammer.
