I want to use boosted dual MC on all drum set-up. Must I still use proportiong valve and pressure control valves?

Thanks Sam.
I just don't know if the prop valve from disc/drum will work. Or, must I get an adjustable valve? Thanks for guidance.

You don't need a proportioning valve but it may help stability under hard braking to use a hold-off valve to the fronts.
