Less effort at the pedal w/more pedal travel can be done by a pedal ratio change. This is the easiest thing to try and I would do this first before changing the bore size, etc.

Was the caliper bore diameter taken into account when the MC was bought? I ask because there are several different 'Vette MC bore sizes available.

At least some S10 calipers were the low drag type that used the stepped bore MC. Do you have more pedal travel before braking begins than you like?

Have you looked at the pedal ratio?

7" vs 8" Dual Booster

Is there that much difference between a 7" and 8" dual boosters power assist capability? I've got about 16 vacuum at idle will I gain much by switching from a 7" to an 8" dual booster?
