Default Using a proportioning valve with ABS

As I had understood it doesnt work or causes some problems with the ABS.
Since switching my car(an 05) to a non ABS system would a total PITA I tried to find someone who had actually tried an adjustable proportioning valve with the ABS. One thread on M.net has Keith from FM saying that it might work. Alas it doesnt seem like there is anyone who can prove it doesn't work? It doesnt seem that hard to mount. I will try and find an extra stock ABS proportioning valve(in case something goes wrong), I dont think I would need the distribution block.
Try it with ABS and if it causes a problem then just pull the fuse for the ABS?

Unless it's 1) a track only car and 2) you understand IN ADVANCE what adding the valve will do I'll recommend against it.

Your and other peoples lives depend on your brakes working properly, the street is a bad testing venue.

It would work. Just set the balance with the ABS disabled. Then restore the ABS. Done.
