Brembo swap issues in 1LS

So, long story short. Swapped out my V6 brakes to the brembos with stainless lines. Pedal feel is pretty soft, but the car stops well, but the pedal is not as responsive as it was with the V6 brakes.

I then drove an SS and it had much more feel/firmness in the brake pedal.

Is that because of the master cylinder that I didn't change? We bled the brakes over and over and are not getting any air out of the system any more. Just seems to be a softer pedal than I remember?

2015 1LS:
Performance- CAI Intake, VMAX Ported TB, Elite Engineering Catch Can
Style- Amazon Z28 Spoiler, DD LEDs
Sound- Alpine iLX-007, Hertz HDP5 Amp, Hertz HSK165, Hertz HCX165, Hertz HX250D, Audison Wiring/RCA's
In the works....
Brembo Brakes, Goodridge lines, Winter wheels/tires

You are now moving a larger volume of fluid to move the large combined piston area. When you depress the brakes a larger volume of fluid must travel through the lines and fill the area behind all 8 front pistons in order to move them into the pad and then the pad moves to contact the rotor.

But, you are saying you drove and SS with a better feel. Did you bleed all 4 caliper and then all 4 bleeders on the front calipers? In what order did you bleed?
