the prop valve? i think i have a picture of my old and new prop valve if you'd think that would help. (i upgrade to a 99-00 si prop valve which is the one you want for rear disc, and BB and MC.)

bump still need help!!!!! can some 1 jump on this...:(:(:(
if you are using rear brakes on your ek, i would suggest getting a 99-00 prop valve. its looks just like the stock one, but the internals are different.

the black one is the stock one. the silver one is the 99-00 si one.
looks the same doesn't it?







i also recommend upgrading your master cylinder, and maybe brake booster too. stock is 13/16 while the si is 7/8 (=14/16).

mine also came from an 99-00 si.



there are other options, but you will have to search for them. there's a sticky by brakexpert in the suspension section that will help.

don't laugh. i need to repaint my car, the guy who painted my car when i told him to paint the engine bay black, he just flat blacked everything. oh wellz, only temporary.

sorry for big pics.
