    Its possible, but you loose brake performance.

    I thought disk breaks are way better than drums?

    Depending on application, and weather or not the booster supports the extra fluid for disks.

    Master cylinder doesn't have enough volume so you have to swap i a larger one. I think the Tacoma is 1 inch one from a land-cruiser fits and is 1 1/8 and will help. I guess residual valves also help.
