If you have all of the turbo coupe brake lines for the rear you could use them. If not Maximum Motorsports has everything you need. I just pulled my SN95 booster and have it for sale for $100 shipped. You could run a 94/95 master cylinder as well.

I ran this setup for nearly 15 years, except it was an SSBC kit using the same components for Fox length axles. On my kit the caliper hoses were armored hard lines but I eventually swapped them for SN95 hoses. The only issue I had was getting the correct banjo bolt length and thread pitch. IIRC, MM's Stop Tech kit comes with two each of the different pitch banjos. You might consider their rear disc conversion hard-lines too.

As for the booster and MC, I used the stock 86 stuff with a gutted prop valve and manual prop valve inserted in the rear system. I ran the stock MC until I went to the SVO front calipers (don't do this) and the stock 86 booster until last summer when it quit working. But in-between I had installed a 94-98 Cobra 13" front and reused the SSBC rear only with 5-lug rotors, then went to the full Cobra rear set-up.

I plan on making my own hardlines for the swap but my dad has an sn95 MC laying around but im not sure if a 93 MC is better because im going to try running the stock booster and go from there

The booster just helps with pedal effort. The M/C provides firm or soft, short/long stroke pedals. Which type of pedal is dependent on the size of calipers being used and the appropriate M/C size. SN95 M/Cs come in different sizes so just saying SN95 doesn't indicate the size. As I said I used my stock 86 M/C and booster for years. For your set-up, I think the 93 Cobra M/C would be fine.

Thats what I was thinking too, thanks for your help!
