    I'd have said it was too big ,max of 3/4 bore needed on Euro size brakes .

    Yes, then you'd bias the pedal to the front as you need extra braking effort to the front and also the rear calipers will be smaller bore . A smaller m/c will increase line pressure but at the expense of extra pedal travel.

    Personally I'd try to find out what the donor car's BMC size is before going any further.
