    Default Anyone use the All-in-one Wilwood Brake Proportioning Valve?

    Planning to do my cobra brake swap in my 1998 LX soon, and I came across this:

    Is there any reason other than cost ($50 difference) that people prefer gutting the stock proportioning valve instead of using a self-contained unit like the above? Seems like it would make a cleaner installation.

    Thanks -

    I would definitely use one if I had not already done mine by gutting the stock combo valve. Looks like a no brainer to me as long as you have a double flare tool.

    Thanks Tom and Darren. I thought it looked like a simple solution as well, and I have all the stuff to double-flare and bend brake lines.

    I've been away from car-building for 25 years, and a lot has changed, not the least of which is that everything is now 25 years older (including me!)
