ABS Master Cylinder
Please excuse my ignorance. I would like to upgrade to an Altima master cylinder to compliment my fastbrakes setup. My b13 ser is an original ABS car. Will the Altima ABS master cylinder be a bolt up affair or will I need custom lines.

Found this quote from Greg V on the old forum "If you don't have ABS, then w/o ABS. If you do have ABS, then w/ABS, but the lines will have to be "massaged" to line up. " I wonder just how much massaging is required?

It's usually a little bend or wiggle. Figure that the ports are going to be a little out of place from the B13. The big difference is the number of ports. ABS has 4, nonABS only has 2.

normally ABS has 2, and non ABS has 4?

also I think Greg is meaning if you have ABS then buy an ABS m/c and if you don't, buy a non ABS m/c, not that they are interchangeable.

Correct, I had it backwards. That's what I get for not going and looking at the cars!

I have ABS on my 92 SE-R and upgraded to an Altima MC.
I bent the brake lines by hand, but bent a piece of coat hanger first to use as a pattern.

You want to remember the ABS proportioning valve is on the firewall so your brake bias will not change with the Altima MC.

I ended up using a NX2000 ABS proportioning valve to get the brake bias I wanted. (I'm using NX2K front brakes and Maxima rears)
