ABS removal

alright, don't flame me for this guys, but i searched and couldnt' find much except a post about someone telling him to not remove it. But i was reading in the classifieds about a person selling his ABS system from a junked car...it's HUGE. I personally don't like ABS in the first place and wondered if taking it out would be a huge job? I figure i'd remove it and save a few lbs from the looks of it. I know i'd prolly need a harness from a non-abs lude, but is there a 4th gen without ABS out there? What are my options?

Yes, ABS helps you. Only the best of racers out there are better than ABS systems made from the 4g and up.

The problem is that if you really want to remove the unit you are going to need to replace all the brake lines with ones from the other models. I don't think you would need a new harness, but you would need to remove the ABS unit (brain) from the car to avoid the ABS light.

Replacing all the brake lines is a *****. You will also find that the unit doesn't weigh more than 10 lbs. Go on a diet if you need to lose that little weight.

Kind of funny, a 4g rearended me about 6 months ago in my truck going about 40mph. He probably would have been able to stop or get out of the way if he had ABS, but he locked up all 4 and submarined under my bumper and went straight into my hitch. Turned the front of his car into spaghetti and didn't damage my truck. If I were in the S2000, I would have probably beaten him to death at the scene.

Why would you want to get rid of ABS. Do you have issues with it or something..did it make fun of you when you were young . Nice to see a fellow MN luder

^^ 20 pounds doesn't seem like that much. But if you're a full on racer anything helps.

If you do take it out don't tell you ins. company, having ABS lowers your ins. and I am sure if you take it out it will bring it up.
