Yes, a 3/4" MC is likely the next best thing to try. All in all, increasing the size of the caliper piston will also do the same thing.

Turns out GM made their D52 calipers with quite a variety of piston diameters. For example, the ones used on a 1974 Malibu are 2,15/16" in diameter compared to my original 2,3/4" pistons from a 75 Camaro. This applies more force to the pads with the same line pressure.

This is one of the things I've already done and it did contribute to better braking. So did the installation of Hawk HPS front pads and EBC YellowStuff rear pads. BUT, I still want more! LOL.
