See, the thing is…actual, factual, will-work advice may not be welcome here.

So why would anyone needing help post at this site? So much incorrect won't-work advice. And folks with fake screen names they think are kool?

Got an email from someone here, lessee wassup.

We're awaiting precision clue-measuring instrumentation to avoid clue bias.

One thing is for sure…good information is unlikely to come from those who "hustle". Says the email, so we'll see.

there is something wrong with the OP's car.

The length of the hose right to left wouldnt make a difference in the pressure in the front brake lines, it would just add volume.

If one of your fronts is locking up and the others isnt you have a mechanical issue of some sort and not a proportioning issue.

alignment, tires, wheels, wheel balance, pads, rotors (both front and rear) and many many other factors come into play.

Do as you are doing and try one thing at a time and quantify if you have solved the issue.

im not sure about the wilwood calipers, but if you install oem type calipers on the wrong side the bleeder valve will be on the wrong part... so im not sure that it will work for you or not.

It's hard to diagnose by forum. All sorts of information is missing. Normally most NA/NB Miatas do ultimately RF lock first. Are we seeing the typical amount, or an excessive amount? That is one thing data can tell you. What is hard to tell with so little information is what else is going on. Tire issues, suspension matters leading to braking issues, aftermarket part installs, etc. Some of the things suggested here in this thread taking longer to post than to check on the car along with various other things at the same time. Once the individual parts on the car are mechanically ok, it very well may be experiencing other issues such as proportioning. With some of the parts installed in the wrong lines I'd want to go over the car very carefully to look for other similar issues in the brakes and in other systems.

If you stick to the effort and do some testing and tweaking later on, you can get the brakes working better than ever Mr OP.

What would your probation officer say about your behavior, and what's up with your fake screen name…something to hide…or that other matter?

If there is a moderator here, note that this unknown person is making up quotes and attributing them to others.

It's cool, I just reported Hustler's behavior to Hustler. He's a moderator, he'll take care of it.

A moderator who behaves like that?!!? On a site with paying sponsors.

And who uses a fake screen name, to hide for some reason?

Laughing Out Loud.

No wonder this place has such a reputation.

We turn threads like these over to our tame Forum Moderator.

Some say, three days after his birth he impregnated a nurse. Some say, Chuck Norris jokes were originally about him but he felt they didn't do him justice.

All we know is, he's called Hustler.

I can stand the heat just fine…it's just sad & funny that this site is like this, things could be better.

Now that I see that "hustler" is apparently a moderator here things make more sense. Sites that care about themselves tend to have mods unafraid to use their name you see.

Those that hide do so for a reason. I saw that at one of my first jobs at a car dealer. It was a Pontiac place with the owner's name identifying the business, as in ~Smith Pontiac. "Smith" lived and raised his family near the dealership. His rival was Stateline Pontiac. Guess which one lied and played games all the time? He did not want his name associated with his own behavior. Stateline was constantly in the newspapers for ripping people off and being investigated. So they hide. Like Hustler. So why are you hiding Mr Hustler?

Be careful of some of the advice in these pages, some of it is suspect.
