Yours stock MC is either 3/4 or 7/8 bore, where you're going to need a 1" bore MC.  The booster swap improves pedal feel, and reduces the massive right leg workout you'll get if you use the stock booster.  The SN-95 booster and Cobra MC in my car combined with my brake choices and the prop valve I used, give a very OE Cobra pedal feel. They feel neither under, nor over boosted. It could have only been better it I converted to all braided stainless hoses.
It's like I stole Baby Bear's brake parts.

Now you are referring to the 93 Cobra Master not the 2003 Cobra master right?

So I did the swap of all the brake hoses, calipers, spindles. Also bought the power stop brake kit for a 99 Mustang 4.6L. The only thing I did notice is that when I swapped (10+ years ago) the turbo coupe brakes onto my sport, I needed one adapter for the left front brake hard line to flex hose. When I installed all the 99 brake calipers to my front hard lines, Everything bolted to the factory hard brake lines. I reused the adapter on the left front, but I did not need the 7828 fittings at all.

Right now I am waiting on my MM caster/camber plates to bolt in on a set of new SN95 front struts.

I have to say that with everything I have done to this car, everything had to be modified. I will be happy when she is running.

Mods so far:
351W swap. replaced all bearings and piston rings
Stage 1 TFS cam
Edelbrock Performer heads
Edelbrock Performer intake
Fitech efi set up w/BMW block off plate
4R70W swap
