Default how much superblue do i need?

as per most of yalls suggestions im planning on getting some ATE super blue. since im switching from DOT 3, do i need more than the 1 litre that it comes with? i know you have to keep flushing to get rid of all the old stuff, i just have no idea how much itll take. thanks!

Isn't an alcohol flush the best way to do it?

No, reserve the alcohol flush is for yourself after the job is done. DOT 3 and DOT 4 are fully compatible, so just a regular flush will suffice. It's best to do it twice, spread out over a week or so with a few hard stops in between to engage the ABS, to make sure it's complete.

I believe the system takes about 1.5 pints. That's what the Ford documentation says. I usually open and use a liter of fluid.

It depends on the course and the driver - some are hard on brakes and some are easy on brakes.

We usually use over 1 litre to do a full flush but tend to err on the make sure all of the old fluid is out side.

Ah, that's right, 3 and 4 mix. I am thinking racing fluids and such. Some require an alcohol flush to get ALL the old fluid out since they won't mix.
