The booster needs clean-ish straight vacuum from the manifold and I'd
use a one way check valve as well.. though in actual use, if the
crankcase is vented to the rear carb I have to admit the booster does
already gets "dirty" air. If you are not venting to the carbs just run a
longer hose down towards the ground to atmosphere. Though your OR
environmentalists won't be happy.. ;-)
