Make sure you do not have a vacuum leak between the brake booster and master cylinder. Sometimes the seal does not sit good and will leak. If it is okay, and you hear a vacuum leak inside the vehicle, then you may need to replace the booster again. You may have gotten a defective or leaking one. To have this inspected, I recommend enlisting the help of a certified mechanic who can verify the problem and let you know what repairs are needed.
