The result of an early morning run to Summit Racing. The stainless lines and fitting that came with the MAX e-brake were metric. The only additional brake line we could find on a Saturday evening was 1/4″ standard line. This line was the closest to the OEM line we would be splicing. The Earl’s fitting would allow us to utilize the standard fitting on the 1/4″ line, and adapt it to the metric lines that came with the e-brakePro/Am Build-upThis is the OEM line that runs from the brake master to the ABS module. After the ABS module, it splits left and right to the rear, so we deduced that our best bet would be to run the e-brake inline herePro/Am Build-upStainless lines run in-line between the brake master and the e-brakePro/Am Build-uprnPro/Am Build-upThe stainless lines then got run under the dash and along the transmission tunnel to the mounting point of the e-brakePro/Am Build-upThis is basically where the e-brake would end up.

All she needs is an alignment and a washPro/Am Build-upWe had to bleed the brakes like 5-6 times. Both manually and with a power bleeder. I thought the guys from Parts Shop Max were joking when they said you had to bleed it a lot. I gave the e-brake a couple solid pulls in the parking lot. It was raining, but it locks up like a champ!

They put hella wrench time on the car… and were a gigantic help. I never could have got all this done today without them. Thanks to Michael Sarol for driving me all over town to pick up parts.

My box from Turner was on my doorstep this evening. I have a TON of Turner parts on my car. They really make some of the best parts on the market. Nearly every suspension component on my car is from Turner.Turner Motorsport Spherical Rear Trailing Arm Bushings. I’ve wanted these for at least 3 years. They are so gorgeous that I almost don’t want to install them. These should replace the last of the rubber bushings in the carTurner Motorsport Spherical RTABNew ITG filter for my Conforti CAI.

I swear this will be the 9th or 10th one of these that will go in this car. I destroy these things with zero mercyGuiboTurner Motorsport Harness Collars.
