improved braking

I've got my 1985 110 on the road now but i don't like how it brakes. I now have disk on all 4 and an adjustable proportioning valve at the rear. I decided to replace the original 27 year old booster and mc with brand new NAS parts. Any flaws in this plan that anyone can see? I figure these parts will fit and dramatically improve the feel of the pedal.

No real reason why it shouldn't work. You might just want to run the proportioning valve found in NAS d90's, then you probably won't need your adjustable proportioning valve anymore.

You don't say how it brakes and what you don't like about it.

the newer/ smaller master cylinder has been purported to be an upgrade over the bigger 80's vintage part

Here's what I don't like- It feels like i have manual brakes. When I start the engine with my foot on the brake pedal I feel it go down. There's power... but not enough to make me feel comfortable. I end up holding 2 feet on the brake while sitting at stop lights to give my leg a break. If i really push hard I can lock them up. Just feel like a lot of work compared to the other rovers I've had like my 89 classic. It had no abs and 37" tires and it felt better.

The brakes on my '97 90 feel the same pretty much. Over time I have come to accept it and have adjusted my driving accordingly.

It is amusing though when I take a drive in my RR after driving the D90 for a while. The first couple of times I hit the brakes I sometimes nearly break my neck from slamming on them too hard.
