The Chase Bays inBay OEMC Brake Line Relocation is for the enthusiast who wants to eliminate engine bay clutter, eliminate delete ABS, and/or compensate for a different master cylinder setup (IE: changing to a newer E30 ABS MC). The OEM brake hard lines are replaced and relocated with -3AN stainless steel, Teflon PTFE lined, black PVC coated lines.
There are 4 terms you should familiarize yourself with when deciding which Brake Line Relocation is right for you.
OEMC - OEM Master Cylinder
BBE - Brake Booster Eliminator
inBay - All brake lines and the adjustable proportioning valve are installed in engine bay. They are routed more stealthily than OEM for improved aesthetics. Driver to passenger side line(s) route under the engine along the subframe or sway bar. The inBay kit is easier to install than the inInterior kit, but is less stealthy and offers less engine bay space savings than the inInterior.
inInterior – The majority of the brake lines along with the adjustable proportioning valve are relocated to the interior behind the firewall. The lines pass through the firewall using AN bulkheads. Depending on the chassis and MC used, only 1 or 2 lines are visible in the engine bay, resulting in a stealthy and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Installation requires minimal drilling into the firewall along with the fenderwell. On most chassis, dash removal is recommended to simplify interior-side drilling and line routing.
The Brake Line Relocation replaces all of the engine bay hard lines up to the lines in the fenderwell. It does not include the fenderwell to caliper lines. Those are available separately here. The front to rear line is adapted two different ways depending on what master cylinder type is used. For OEMC with non-ABS MC, there is an OEM inline proportioning valve to the right of the master cylinder just above the frame rail to reduce the brake pressure to the rear calipers. This will be retained and our included metric to -3AN male to male adapter will thread directly into this. For OEMC with ABS MC, the OEM inline proportioning valve will be eliminated and replaced with our adjustable proportioning valve. Once it is removed our supplied metric female to -3AN male adapter will thread onto the OEM rear line tube nut. It is then pulled slowly upwards to reinstall onto the factory bracket (see installed photos).
