sounds like alot of trouble for slighty better braking in an emergency
but youv gota take into account the abs system, how its all gona fit, what sort of flow rates it uses for the brake fluid basicly how strong the brakes will be
my view is learn how to brake properly during a lock up then you wont need that sorta stuff Razz

like domintor says alot of work for nowt really, pump and ecu would fit ok but the hard part is fitting the abs rings on drive shafts and rear brakes then trying to fit the sensors to read what the 4 wheels are doing to make the system work prob cud be done but alot of hassle mate

i personally would stay int house wid the missus on an eve then stay up till 2pm in ma garage wondering why or how to make work lol

cheers

None did. I was not an option. At least not in a GTi.
