    Well I commend you for realizing that brakes are as important as engine mods and are part of the equation; however, with 102 HP, if you turbocharge it, you might get up to maybe 140 or so (using a safe boost level), and for that type of power, your rear drum brakes should be okay just as they are. It's the front brakes you might want to beef up with better rotors and pads. I really don't think you need to worry about the expensive conversion to rear disks at this point in your plans.

    google "KVR Peformance" for pads and rotors. There are others of course.
