Changed front and rear brake calipers and hoses. Could not get a firm pedal. Bled ABS unit with scan tool with ABS bleed function. Obtained power bleeder that attaches to master cylinder and manually pumps up to 15 PSI. Had a lot of brake fluid bled through each caliper, no air bubbles present. Proceeded to manually bleed brakes with 2 man method. 3 firm pumps, hold, open one bleed screw, farthest one first, pump 3 times, repeat. Still no firm pedal, over one gallon of brake fluid flushed through brake system. Pedal seems firm initially, then starting car it goes to floor. Changed master cylinder, bench bleed, etc, and still no firm pedal. Any ideas? Could it be power brake booster?

If the pedal is hard or firm then drops when the engine is started, then yes. The booster is most likely the issue. I attached the process on how to replace it in case you need that.

Let us know how you make out.
