Front+Rear 330 Brake Conversion done. Need to replace brake cylinder too?

As title says, is it necessary to replace the brake cylinder as well with one from a 330? The only thing that has changed (apart from little to none brake fade under stress) is that the brake pedal *i think* travels a tad more

Thanks!

Wouldn't the smart thing to do is to cross-reference part numbers? AFAIK, the 325 and 330 use the same brake master cylidner.

The 320 doesn't, hence the question.
Only 1 part number different, rest of the parts are the same
320
330

I haven't also seen any BBK manufacturer/supplier say that is mandatory to replace the brake cylinder and the brakes they are offering are much larger than what I have stock or right now - unless they are and I am missing it.

Let me rephrase, what issues I might be running into if I retain the stock 320 master brake cylinder?
