Default Brake line question

Time for some advice. I am putting in the brakes. For my build it uses a 2002 Honda Civic master cylinder. My car will be likely rear heavy 40/60. I will have disc brakes on all 4 corners. My question is about the valving. Would you opt for a proportioning valve, combination valve, just a distribution block, nothing at all?

Thanks,

Electric SuperCar

Too many variables - for example, how much suspension travel which will greatly affect weight transfer under heavier braking - I'd put in a proportioning valve but keep it at 50:50 to start with.
