1994 mustang proportioning valve

I am using front and rear stock disc brake setup from a 1994 mustang gt donor. I installed a 1994 Cobra master cylinder. Would the stock 1994 gt brake distribution block work fine?

There is no need to use a proportioning valve, or distribution valve. Plumb the brakes directly to the MC.

I agree with Rich. Thereís no benefit to using it and your brake line plumbing is cleaner, more simplified without it.

It's original use in the Mustang was to make sure the rear brakes didn't lock first. When you move all the hardware from a front heavy Mustang to a rear heavy FFR, you need more rear brake rather than less. So ditch the valve.

If you're like most roadsters running Mustang brakes you'll find that you could use more rear bias. Balance can be improved with more aggressive rear pads.

Ditch the valve and go with more aggressive pads on the rear.

Hawk has some that grab considerably better. More brake dust in the process though.
