You'll probably struggle top find the exact one you are after, but you can easily build one from other units.

HQ with 4 wheel boosted drum brakes VH316 is identical except for the valve body, VH316 uses VH2031 valve body, VH317 uses VH2030.
HT-HG with front discs VH320 is almost the same, just needs a different pushrod at the back which you can get off an early HK with boosted drums or an early LC with boosted drums, early disc brake one might work too.

A lot of the V8 Torana ones are the same bosster as well with a different pushrod, eg VH229, VH230, VH345. Even some obscure ones like VH333 or 334 of a Ford FG TG Truck or VH332 off an Acco truck are the same basic thing with different pushrod and in some cases a different valve body.

Give Terry at Hydroboost in Echuca a call. He has lots of bits, and may be able to build you one without needing a core exchange. He knows them inside out, and does a great job.
I have a similar booster on my VL Brock - the HDT strokers got a special booster on them, made from a range of bits.
Terry was able to name all the bits and what they were off - some were from the A9X, and other cars mentioned were XU1 and HT/G. He rebuilt it for me, and it's perfect.
Even though I didn't request it, he even looked after the date code on the housing - being careful with blasting & painting - he's that meticulous.
Cheers,

Mick

Hi LC870. Did you ever find a booster for your Torana? I have a VH317 I have been keeping for my HG Van. It needed a rebuild so I took it off and replaced it with a smaller Torana size booster and bracket. I want to put a big booster (disc front) back on it down the track but would prefer a correct early HG one. Let me know?
