Nice what did you do to remove the ABS stuff? I no longer have ABS and would love to clean up the bay by removing all that junk.

What are the details on the engine.
Is it still a LS1 or a LSX block?

Since mine is a weekend driver (was) ABS is nto an issue on this car as it will never see the snow again. I've learned to threshold brake this car quite well. Out of the many years I'have owned this car the ABS has kickedin only a handful of times most of that was rocky or icy roads. Never that I can remember on a dry road. Dodging deer and all.

Thanks






The ABS will not work with a spool rear end.

I got the SMJ ABS delete kit, but I rebent all the lines and remounted everythng where its hidden.
