slippers very appropriate for this time of year.

sure sounds like you have an air leak, and probably in the booster itself. In the engine bay there is an air line from the rear of the plenum, through a 1 way valve, into a cannister and then into the brake booster. Check each of those lines for splits and make sure the 1 way valve is working (ie, you can blow air through from the engine side, but not the cannister side). 

But I think most likely the booster has a leak. You can replace with second hand or reconditioned one.

Just now, boomtheroom said:

wouldnt the brake be crappy if there was a booster leak?

Cheers!

No. The pedal actuating rod has to pass through the diaphragm. They can leak there. Make a lot of whooshing noises. Only leaks when you stroke it.**

**not the thing you're thinking of.

Booster can work and still leak. Or vice versa.

There's no upgrade and no need for an upgrade. You can take them to a (proper) brake shop and get them rebuilt for not much.
