If you put you foot on the peddle Do you hear a SSSHHHH sound ?, if you do sounds like the Diaphragm in the booster is gone or the seals have gone in the master cylinder.

With the break master cylinder i think you can get kits for them and they should be easy to install should be cheaper than buying a replacement, with the booster if its that you have to replace it.

just a note - don't overtighten the nuts / bolts for the master cylinder. Will result in a cracked booster. Torque to specs
