Default Brake Question

I plan to use the SSBC drum to disc upgrade on the rear. This comes all parts necessary including the master cylinder. On the front I want to just upgrade to the SVO 73mm calipers. I want to piece the front together as it will be cheaper than buying a kit. My rotors and pads currently have under 3k miles.

Now for the questions. I would assume my current front brake hoses will connect to the new master cylinder setup and want to know if the 87-93 front brake hoses are a direct fit to the SVO calipers? Are the SVO pads bigger than the 87-93 V8 pads? I currently have EBC RED ceramic pads and may switch to the HAWK ceramic pads if the SVO pads are noticibly bigger.

Thanks

Nothing is wrong with the EBC Red pads. It's just if the SVO pads are bigger then I will go with the Hawk ceramic to get a bigger pad to go with the bigger caliper piston.
