Brakes no work?

I am put a jeep xj booster and corvette master cylinder into my range rover. It has 4 piston front calipers and 2 piston rears. I have put new flex lines all around with all new hard lines bent to the mc and new pads and rotors. This thing just wont stop... I am really at a loss here. I am just standing on the pedal and it just crawls to a stop.

The only two things I can think that may be at fault are:

The location that the pushrod into the booster is attached to the pedal assembly. This might be an inch or two more or less than the stock jeep pushrod locations causing a different pushrod force than my jeep brothers.

Calipers are for some reason clogged(wern't when the truck was taken apart at the begining of summer).

All hard lines are 3/16" from the master...... Bore of the master is 1 1/8"

Pleae help me get this sorted out I am loosing my mind with this one

When you say stand on the pedal is the pedal hard to push or real easy to push

The pedal is hard... no air in the line it almost feels to hard. It will hit a point in pedal rotation(far from the floor) where it just wont go any further regardless of the force aspplied. I went with the jeep booster because it fit well in the small space between the firewall and the wheel wells.
