The master cylinder and power booster you installed is not a factory style setup (your master cylinder does not appear to be a Jeep model... maybe from a corvette? disc/disc?). Your experience may not pertain to the OP's question (seems like the question was about a more "factory" power brake upgrade (probably disc/drum), not a cross brand conversion).
Not sure if the stock manual lines will fit or not (doesn't hurt to try them first... if they don't fit, then buy new). Will definitely want a new MC designed for power brakes, a mounting bracket for the firewall, and the correct linkage to connect to brake pedal. I would suggest going with a dual diaphragm power booster (better performance/less pedal pressure), although that can compound the clearance problem with the air cleaner housing. Will also need to tap into engine vacuum for the power booster.
