Looks like a nice conversion if it all works out.

When are you thinking to start this conversion ?

would be best to upgrade to some braided lines with larger brakes as well since you're going to be upping the power plant in it. find some MPS 6 brakes and call it a day

MPS 3 brakes may be a little easier to find. Both BK and BL MPS are the same 320mm goodness.
