jbcobra,
If your pedal ratio is set for the booster you may need to change it to work the manual mc. I recently worked this out in my car where my pedal ratio was about 3.5 to 1 and I have the manual brakes. I increased it to a little over 6 to 1 which is a huge improvement but 7 to 1 is ideal. Measure the length of your brake pedal pivot to foot pad, then measure from the pivot to the mc rod, then divide the numbers to get the ratio. Or do a search on pedal ratio and you should find all kinds of helpful info.
