Default NB Wilwood prop valve question.

I'm installing a 949 Big Brake kit with a Wilwood prop valve on a 2002 Nb and my question is .... How is everyone prop valve mounted ? I've searched and looked for pictures with it install on a Nb with no luck .

Here's how looks on my car .. Doesn't really mount sturdy at all .

On my NA its just suspended by the brake lines. Just like yours except verticle to the passengers side of the master.

No, what I'm saying is that yours is fine as long as you're fine with the placement.

On a track only car, we've routed our rear line thru the interior, with the prop valve mounted on the right side of the trans tunnel, next to the gear shift.

Great for fine tuning.

I just didn't like how it wasn't sturdy . It flops around being just held by the brake lines . I make a bracket that spaces it away from the other line and mounts securely up against the factory prop valve bracket .
