Nutshell:

Put a 57% porporting valve directly after the rear brake line on the master cyl. ($35 from speedway motors... I use fittings that adapt the 1/8" NPT to 10x1.00. I also use an unused rear line to connect the valve to the master cyl so that i don't have to flare any new lines).

Cap the rear most line on the T (10x1.00 inverted flare fitting) in the passenger side wheel well.

take out the LPSV, and throw it in the trash

Take the remaining line running to the rear of the truck, and connect it to the soft brake line.

Done. Problem solved.

Practice locking up your brakes on the dirt with someone observing to make sure you are getting your fronts to lock first, and fine tune to feel. The quantitative approach seems too tough with too many variables based on mods.
