if the pedal pumps up the the adjustment is too low.Your brakes need to be square on the backing plate.The bottoms need to be adjusted to just touching.The tops when resting on the stops need to be close to adjusted.The pins need to be long enough that the wheel cylinder does not run out of stroke.The extra 2 wheel cylinders will need a longer stroke master to move enough volume of fluid. The boost does not make a difference to the volume of fluid moved. You might consider using wheel cylinders with a reduced bore to get more movement for the shoes.
If you cannot find smaller bore wheel cylinders,have a machinist sleeve the cylinders.
