“Why keep manual brakes….. The whole point to convert to disc is power disc brakes… A hell of alot better stopping power. Its all about making old cars better than new.”
Uh, no. The brakes at the wheels neither know nor care if there is a power booster. All they know is the hydraulic line pressure. You don’t need a power booster to make sufficient line pressure. It’s just one way to get there. Carefully picking master cylinder bore and pedal ratio do the same thing. Manual vs power has nothing to do with pressure at the wheels.
