Thanks, just wondering could i just add carbontex washers? Or to get a better drag system do i need to replace the metal washers etc  as well?


You could, but it would depend on what drag washers are currently in there. The stock Daiwa drag washers were quite thick, sometimes 2x+ thicker than the carbontex washers you will be replacing the stock ones with. You will then have a problem with the spacer sleeve under the star now being too short, and the star may rub against the side plate before you get any meaningful drag tension. You might have add one or more extra metal washers on top of your modified stack to get it back to an acceptable overall height.
Bryan's kit will be a direct swap out, and call it done. But if you have the tools, materials and time to modify other washers to suit, there is nothing stopping you from building your own custom metal stack to suit the carbontex upgrade. I have done this on Penns and Daiwa's with mixed results. The quickest and easiest solution is to invest in Bryan's kit. These reels are worth the investment IMO, as properly cared for, you will be able to hand these reels down to your children. It's a shame Daiwa don't build reels as robust as this series any more.
