e30 M50 Swap project - help needed

Ok, so I need some info from the experienced people who have completed this project with success. Currently I have an M50B25 engine installed with the trans that came from a 1991 525i. Currently having issues with picking the correct brake vacuum booster with minimal mods if possible to fit in here. Also, my stock e30 radiator will not fit, like others say will, with the 7 fin stock e30/m20 fan. it hits the drivers side. Maybe I have the smaller radiator, i dont know. Shifter linkage is a hair too long, drive shaft out of an e36 325i fits perfect. Exhaust still needs to be worked, wiring and fuel lines are still hanging pending brake booster install; but i have pinned out a connector/adapter already. Any experienced people, please chime in! Thanks in advance.
Pics are posted on my facebook if anyone is interested.
look for chris osolin

you could get a aftermarket rad, but my stock one fit i just ran a SPAL fan instead of the mechanical fan. brake booster, you can get a pre-modified one from AKG or get an IX one
