Default Volvo Amazon Brakes

Hey all. Just finished up rebuilding and bleeding the brakes on my Amazon. I have the single circuit front discs, and drums in the rear. I have rebuilt calipers up front, and new drum cylinders in the rear, as well as a dual output Wilwood master cylinder. Despite all this, the brakes still seem pretty weak. Im not accustomed to driving unassisted brakes, so Im unsure if they should feel so (for lack of a better word) terrible? Anyone have any experience with inline brake boosters? Since my master cylinder has a rear and front output, it looks like I could only make either the front or rear boosted. Seems like the steering shaft would have to be modified to fit a booster behind the master cylinder.
