Default slp line lock install???????

do you remove the stock adapter from the master cylinder? the stock line is screwed into an adapter which is screwed into the master cylinder, but the pictures show the new line screwed directly into the master cylinder.

i found a pick of the 07-09 gt install on american muscle and the did not remove that adapter. i cant imagine the line would have anything to seal against without it,but maybe the master cylinder port is tapered.

Installed it leaving the stock fitting in the master cylinder. After a few extra turns of the wrench, everything appears to be leak free. I hate working on brakes.

I read this was easy, HA! Getting that stock line out is a bitch! If I had it to do over, i'd have just cut that mother. I drained the master cylinder by quickly pulling the line out of the abs block and sticking it in a hose I had running down in front of the motor and still ended up getting brake fluid all over the headers while trying to remove the stock line.

Now, how the F do you drill a hole to mount the damn solenoid?

It's looking like double sided emblem tape, unless I want to spend another $38 on a right angle drill from amazon. The thing is held pretty good by just the lines.

It works!

pick showing the master cylinder. If you look at the slp instructions, their pic doesn't look like this. They removed that big silver nut.

I just put the switch in a hole for my wideband reset button, which I hid behind the panel.

Good job on the install, I installed the dual line locks using Taco Bills thread, I just tapped into the front brake line in front of the calipers. Looks like tapping into the master cylinder is quite a bit more work. I hooked my switch to a relay which changes the horn circuit to the line locks. Pressing the horn button activates the line locks which makes using them very convenient. The switch usage is used to change between line locks and horn. I would post a pick where I attached the relay to the horn circuit, but I never figured out how to post pics.

i initially pieced together my own kit back in 06 using two summit solenoids, but i could never get the passenger side to hold as tight as the driver side and trhe car who kick out hard. I even tried swapping the solenoids. this kit is so much simpler and no chance of one solenoid being stronger than the other. half the wiring and half the brake lines to deal with.

If you don't want to save the stock line, then this is a very easy install, aside from mounting the solenoid. the 07+ slp kits have the solenoid mounted higher up on the shock tower, so easier to mount.

well i drove to work and back. Had a slight leak at the master cylinder fitting and the solenoid fitting on the master cylinder side. these are the same two that leaked after the initial test. I gave them another 1/4 turn and will recheck for leaks tomorrow. they better seal!!

I know. that was a short 1st gear test. I didn't know if the brakes would hold and my driveway isn't that long!

Yep, i still got it. Thinking about making it a race car and getting something else to drive to work.

For anyone with a 05-06 that wants to install this kit, get one of these to drill the pilot holes and I used it to screw in the screws.
DEWALT DWARA100 Right Angle Adapter Attachment - Power Drill Bit Extensions - Amazon.com DEWALT DWARA100 Right Angle Adapter Attachment - Power Drill Bit Extensions - Amazon.com

You'll need a shortie hex type drill bit to work with it.

Looks like the 3rd times the charm for tightening these brake line fittings. No leaks today. You really have to mount it to the fender to properly tighten the fittings.

Looks like I spoke to soon. The pre-bent line between the master cylinder and solenoid is leaking at the solenoid fitting. I'm not sure if I should try and crank it down tighter or loosen it and readjust the line. the flare is likely deformed all ready. I have a few threads still showing, so I could really crush it if I wanted to, but at some point something is likely to break.

I knew I should have left the brakes alone after my first line lock experience.

I think I got them all sorted, except the line going into the abs block. It was slightly off center when I tightened it. I pulled it straight while it was still tight and I'm going to loosen it a bit and then crank that mother down.

I made a little short video today in the drive way. 1st gear only and I forgot to shut off the stupid traction control for the first second or two. These yokohamas smoke good for only doing 20ish mph.

I just pulled the front wheel off and drilled through the outside in.

The first one I did I bought the right angle drill adapter and it was a bitch. Then while finishing the first install, I took the wheel off to do something and realized it was easier. Second install was much easier.

I thought about drilling from the wheel well, but I was still going to have to buy something, because my drill was never going to fit in there with the spring in the way. A drill bit extension would have worked.

The right angle adapter was easy on my car with my big bulky dewalts electric drill.

My biggest regret is not cutting the damn stock line. Just cut it people!

Yeah, I agree. Just cut it.

I took the spring out. Just takes a few minutes.

fitting finally stopped leaking after tightening it as far as it would go. I moved the switch next to the shifter and will get a cover just in case I have a curious passenger.
