I finally got around to installing my AD22VF brake yesterday, and I ran into a problem. The problem was that I accomplished the installation without any major problems. I couldn't believe the install was so easy, that I have to think that there's is something wrong with my car and I just don't know it yet! I've installed a header in 10 hours (damn rusty bolts), blown a fusible link when relocating the battery to the trunk (oh, red is positive), had wrong parts when installing GC camber plates (f%$#ing Ground Control!), etc., etc. So I know this is too good to be true.


Seriously, it went pretty easy. The only problem was that the end of the brake lines wouldn't fit into the little prongs on the calipers. But a minute or so of dremeling took care of that.


There also seems to be a bit more pedal travel before the brakes really engage, but it's not that big of a deal.

I haven't really tested the brakes effectiveness (tools and other crap floating around inside the car), so I can't say how much greater they are over stock brakes. I'm guessing that I probably won't notice a difference until the 20th minute of a track session.

Stock lines? I didnt have any trouble with mine. Everything bolted right up, execpt with all the grinding I had to do.

But the peddal...mine is a bit soft at the top, still stops really well, but after a tad of movement they REALLY bite. Ive bled a few times, goign to do it again here pretty soon. Actualy goign to change fluid soon. Its a very easy install, and definatly worth it if your stockers are about crapped out.

Dont forget that with the larger calipers, your pushing more fluid, thats why you get that little bit more pedal travel before they start to bite. On another subject, how did you mount your battery in your trunk? Did you use a sealed box? I've heard thats recommened - something about keeping gasses from the battery from seeping into the car, or is that all BS? Do you have any pics of it I could see?

Yep, that's about right. It was the easiest and quickest upgrade install I've ever done. As for the pedal travel, you might still have a little bit of air in there somewhere. It took me more than one bleeding to get everything out.

I used a Summit battery relocation kit. I think it was around $50-$60 or so (bought a couple years ago). It included everything that was needed (except for the damn fusible link that I inadvertently blew, but that's another story
).

The summitt kit is now 80 bucks I think. I know my friend was looking at it for his CRX and figured that was crazy.
