    Greg, I was able to sort things out. It was a mix of M12-1 and M10-1 fittings on the ABS. To complicate matters, I am installing a hydroboost system from a '96 Mustang GT, so that includes a different master cylinder which uses 2xM12-1 fittings. I found everything I needed at AutoZone and will be bending and flaring lines over the New Year's break. Now to sort out the PS lines for the hydroboost system...

    Hey Greg, I am in the process of a pretty major overhaul of my Mk 3.1 and the brakes are getting a lot of attention. In addition to upgrading to 13 inch rotors all around with new calipers, I am adding a 94-95 ABS setup. (My starting point is '94 spindles and rear end so I have the tone rings and appropriate mounting locations.) I got the ABS module and appropriate wires/connectors from MPS Salvage, but I don't have the flare nuts for the ABS module. Do you have the fitting sizes on the ABS module itself? If not, I will probably carry it to the parts store and try various fittings until I hit pay dirt. Thanks for all the pioneering work you did on this!

    Cheers,
    Shack

    Hello, It was suggested I give you a holler. I am planning my Mk4 build. Plan is coyote engine, IRS, PS and AC. You are considered the master of the ABS install. Could you give me any advice on what system would be the best for my install. I would like to stay away from donor parts and would like to keep it as simple as possible. I have read your threads and it looks like the GT350 system is the way to go. Outside of the parts listed in your thread, is there anything else I would need? Also, do the speed sensors fit in the newer Mk4 kit? Sorry if my questions are elementary, I am a noob and trying to find my way. Thanks
    Jason.

    Hi Greg,

    I installed the ABS diagnostic light as you outlined (switch on dash). However, I forget the test sequence; power-up, wait for light to go off, then flip switch and count flashes?

    The light does go off when I power-up, but I'm still trying to see if the ABS is what is making the "grinding" noise when I'm braking during right-hand turns. It has to be something to do with the PS/hydroboost/ABS interface.

    Greg, does your ABS info/write-up instructions still exist in any format? Looking to do it on next build, also, and would will be able to do so without it. If it's available, maybe we could get a moderator to place it in the FAQ section?
