  • ABS what should I get

    ^^ I found someone who is canceling their abs!!!! 200can$ and everything is mine. (probably front only) Will it cause any problems to run only two way?

    What should I get?
    ABS ECU,
    Speed sensors,

    anything else?

    You'll have to figure out how to reprogram it to have it ignore the rear. FWIW, the rear is way easier to swap than the rest of the parts. Although, it's probably the most costly since you will need a sensor, differential housing and driveshaft.

      For the front, you will need ABS hubs, ABS spindles, ABS sensors, ABS brake master cylinder, ABS control unit, ABS pump...

        for the master, what if I just send my front tubing to the abs box? And leave the rear to the rear?

        Oh and for the signal for the rear, I could splice it front my Fright or Fleft wheel. :P

          On my systems, if the rear isn't hooked up right, nothing works. No clue about reprogramming or faking the signal. Don't forget all the wiring you can get and then use what you can. You can use a normal m/c and plug one hole. I would get the piping across the firewall if at all possible. It would be hard to make.

            The problem is I am getting a LHD pipping and its going into a RHD car.

              That will not be easy then. The pipes could help but the mount for the abs stuff is not going to work. If you are set on using that one, it might be easier to mount it somewhere else than the stock location. Those things are stuffed in there enough with all the right mounts. You might consider putting it in the trunk or rear floorboard. You are going to have to fab all the lines anyway. Are you sure you want to do only fronts? The rear is easy and having the fronts not lock up while the rears do is a recipe for disaster.

              By the way, did you know the Z32 subframe is wider than the S13/14?

                Wait a minute. I have the RHD version sitting here with all the mounts. Pay shipping and I will swap with you. I'm not sure if I have any of the tubing anymore though. Up to you.

                  I just pulled my ABS components.
                  Knuckles are drilled out and currently have the DEF lca's installed, so I can't swap those.
                  I will be doing some re-wiring as well, so if you need any of the controls, I may be able to help you out.

                    What are you doing with them? And just how much did you pull out?

                      I pulled (read destroyed) the sensors in the knuckles, but I've modified and am using the knuckles anyway, so they're out of the question.

                      I pulled the large ABS block and the rear diff (ABS VLSD).
                      I'll be rewiring a bunch of stuff, so could provide the modules/wiring if needed and not too hard to obtain. I'll most likely be running new brake lines as well.

                      Knuckles & rings are out of the equation.

                        I believe J30 stuff works if you have a hard time finding them i can pull a set from the junkyard LA junkyards are full of J30's

                        just let me know

                          I destroyed the ABS sensors removing them too. Good thing I'm not interested in adding it back (yet).

                            I will update, I will get that parts this week end.

                            And wow. I love my old forum. One guy tells to become a better driver before getting ABS :P.

                            oh and why I am not scared of locking the rear, is because its only a one way so as long as I am in gear I will be able to see my RPMs go down. And maybe I will even be able to induce some pivoting at entry, if my brake propotioning is good.

                            Also logr, on my math exam today, there was a question on the z32 width compared to the s13. I thank this forum because I was able to answer it!

                              I had a dream last night...I understood Bob Dylan...but he just kept repeating "Z32 is wider" I wonder if that's true???
