If you look in your conversion manual there is a section on these.

It's a pretty good time to buy a Wilwood manual proportioning valve and stick it inline on the back brakes.

the manual one you are talking about, would allow me to adjust the rear brakes as needed? I am just swapping into a daily driver car. what is best for a street setup?

Yup, you just turn the knob until you have the desired braking pressure! (May require some fine tuning, you want to avoid having your rear brakes lock up)

Just search for "Wilwood proportioning" at your favorite speed parts store (or ebay), they're about $50. Since you already have to re-do the brake lines at the master, they're no extra effort to add in.

that looks nice. Does the stock proportioning valve not put enough brake pressure at the rear?

Nah, the stock setup is fine if you're not changing anything on the brake system. I put a Wilwood master cylinder on mine so the adjustable bias is required. It would also be necessary if you change the rear brake calipers.
