Unhappy FPE/Challenger GFCI

installing the electric for a hot tub. thats the easy part. the homeowners panel is a FPE. real old. ive already advised them to change the panel out,added in some personal horror stories(not to panic them, just to explain), but it did not seem to change their minds. this brings me to my problem. does anyone know of a gfci breaker compatible with a fed. pac. panel??? i did a web search, and all i can come up with is stuff on recalls of FP stuff that is 15 years old. any ideas??? im looking for a 1 pole 20A
