HAHA! You made me think long and hard about chalkboard paint buddy. I was wondering when you'd show up here. Put you location in your profile please.

This guy. Probably the only guy to get banned from CR.

Clean engine bay. How are you running the brake lines with the master? Is that one port out and you split it 4 ways?

I take it you changed your pedal ratio to make up for the lack of booster?

Lol yeah I was banned for a few months lol.

Brakes were (redoing lines with lineloc now)

Wilwood 7/8 bore master
Ran to a 1 to 2 splitter
Then gm proportion valve with adjustable rear bias

Both fronts are individial and for rear I reused the factory line.

Never touched the pedal assy. I still had great pedal feel and braking was very strong

To be honest I really wanted to hate your car at first, but your engine bay makes my nether regions tingle.
It doesn't look like you have much clearance here:
Nevermind, optical illusion.

I guess my eyes tricked me. It looked like the housing was touching, but I see now that it is not.
