11" Booster with 350 & tall valve covers?

Hi All,
I am ready to order my front Power Disc Conversion kit for my 67 Camaro and I am confused about all the boosters available. I want the original look so I was going with the 11" booster that gives the "factory look" from Right Stuff or Matt's, but I have tall valve covers on a 350 motor and it looks tight, will this work or should I go with a 9" single or dual diaphram.
I read that smaller booster = less assist at the pedal

Thanks
Steve

I have an 11" booster and tall valve covers on a 350 in a 69 and can remove and reinstall the valve cover without issue, although it is a little tight.

69 SS, 350/300 h.p., M-20, 12 bolt, matching numbers.

Here is a picture of the Right Stuff 11'' booster on my small block with standard valve covers. You can see that it is kinda tight--- tall ones *might* hit but they are taller on an angle, so that's something to consider..

Here's a view of mine with tall covers. As I said, I was able to remove the cover to retorque the head and then reinstall. It was tight but doable.
