The short answer is yes it has been done. If you want more details, maybe you would be so kind as to give us some details about you car. Is it an FB, FC,FD?

Sorry about that , I guess this would help . I have a 90 GTU with a Fd motor going in it. This should be all you need


Thanks in advance

The FC has a very unique front brake plumbing arrangement. One line comes off the MC and another comes from a distribution block. This makes it hard to plumb. To make things easier I used two solinoids and plumbed them in the left and right lines that go to each of the wheels. It works like a charm. I used these solinods:

and I got the rest of the hardware and fittings from the auto parts store.

Search my name and you will find vidoes of the car at the track.

Here is a video of mine in action.
Black FC....BTW...had to lift on that run. Was becoming unstable @ 100 MPH due to slicks.
