Increasing the Main Injector (MI) beam power above ~1.2 MW requires replacement of the 8-GeV Booster by a higher intensity alternative. In the Project X era, rapid-cycling synchrotron (RCS) and linac solutions were considered for this purpose. In this paper, we consider the linac version that produces 8 GeV H beam for injection into the Recycler Ring (RR) or Main Injector (MI). The linac takes ~1-GeV beam from the PIP-II Linac and accelerates it to ~2 GeV in a 650-MHz SRF linac, followed by a 8-GeV pulsed linac using 1300 MHz cryomodules. The linac components incorporate recent improvements in SRF technology. Research needed to implement the high power SRF Linac is described.
