    The servo will be more than up to the job I think the question you should be asking is can the master cylinder cope.

    I've copied this from another one of my posts:

    It is the brake master cylinder piston area that dictates the pedal travel not the servo. The servo is just to make life easier, it is the area of the piston pushing the fluid that needs to be looked at with bigger pistoned calipers. If you think you've got the standard master piston pushing the same amount of fluid but having to push a larger area making it less efficient and the pedal longer.
