Hi everyone, I have a Gen2 ZR with ABS :D

Im wanting to fully take out the whole ABS unit. All of the loom is out of the car and all the brackets that hold the pump to the body.
The only restriction now is that the Brake lines go through the pump (obviously). Was woundering if i have to get non ABS Brake lines or if its possible to get a brake place to modify the brake lines i have so i can get rid of the pump.

The reason i want to get rid of the ABS is since i have gone to very hard shocks the ABS comes on over any decent bump :roll:

Any help would be much appreciated as im a bit stuck :oops:

Yeah you will need to replace your brake lines. Your aware your car will need cert if you remove the ABS tho.

Too late, Heath do you want to see a photo of my engine bay(its pretty bad) i also dont have slip rings on the axles as my car was auto and the manual axles are bigger and have evo3 axles (which didnt have ABS at all) so its better if i take it out

If you can make look like it never had ABS (ie remove the ABS bulb and any stickers anywhere that say it has ABS) you might be able to get away with it :wink: Remeber its not just about getting a WOF. Insurance might also be a problem if you have an accident. IE the conversion to non ABS has be completely transparent.

I ditched my ABS completely by removing everything and replumbing all the brakes. At the same time I converted it to front/rear split instead of diagonal and added a bias valve which I mounted to the side of the gear change mech. All the lines were done in stainless braided ptfe from mastercylinder right through to the calipers, one line each for the fronts fed off a double banjo union on the master cylinder and a single line running rearwards via the bias valve to a T-piece behind the rear seats and then a single run straight to each rear caliper. Could be done in a similar way using copper or steel brake pipe but I wanted to add stainless flexis and its the unions that are expensive not the pipe so it was very little extra to do the whole car.
