96 GT Hydroboost Problem

the problem here is that my brake pedal can be mashed to the floor and it wont return unless I pull it up (it does return I guess when it feels like it lol) even with the master cylinder installed or off. I just want to get a clear opinion before I go buy a replacement hydro boost system.

Help me understand why this isn't just a bad master cylinder? What does the pedal do if depressed while the motor is off?

Turns out the hydro boost unit was bad. It kept the rod to the brake pedal from releasing. I have no clue how it started that in the first place maybe because the car was sitting for some time. @ wmburns
