The Chase Bays 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: Brake Booster Eliminator). 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 (click here for more info)
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. The front to rear line is adapted two different ways depending on what kit type is used. For inBay kits, there is an OEM inline adapter on the passenger side shock tower near the firewall. This will be retained and our included metric to -3AN male to male adapters will thread directly into this. For inInterior kit, the OEM inline adapter is eliminated and the front to rear lines are adapted on the interior side by cutting the lines to length (see installed photos), sliding the tube nuts and sleeves on, and flaring to 37º using a proper flare tool. The tube nuts will thread directly onto the -3AN male union fittings inside the car just before the firewall / kick panel (see installed photos).
