I may need to suggest such a conversion to customers looking for a lighter pedal effort. Do you feel it is comparable to a power assist disc conversion? My guess is it must be somewhere in between? When you compare it to a modern car, they almost all have power assist.

Using a master cylinder with a bore under 1 is recommended for non-power systems. When using a booster larger is better.
