ABS for the Gen1

Postby Miketakeahike » June 4th, 2013, 6:33 am

Searched the forum for ABS topics but couldn't find any.
Is there any version of the G1 with ABS?
Would like to have it on mine.

Recently crashed into an old lady locked wheels and wet surface = no stopping power and zero steering.
(We were both fine not such a hard blow, but non the less)

Nope. ABS was introduced on the G2 in 1990.

Fabbing ABS in these old cars isnt worth the time or trouble. Want ABS? Buy a newer Integra. Or just upgrade your brakes and learn how to drive.

ABS was available in the g2s and g3s IIRC. But you'd be looking for axle fabrication to get the magnets and sensors attached to the knuckles. Also there's the on-board computer to sort it all out. Looks like it would be a big pain but, people will do what they want. :D

It most certainly isn't as difficult as this and yet it was done.....you can do it, it depends on how dedicated and focused you are. Nevermind what anyone says, if you want it bad and the desire is there, you can do it. Pull parts from a Civic or Teg with ABS, adapt the parts or mod the Teg to accommodate the parts, install and plumb the remote reservoir and ABS pump, etc. etc.

Wow easy there!!!

I was asking wether there was a version of the G1 with ABS.
I did NOT say I absolutly, no matter what, am going to make it ABS.

I mean if there was a ready, bolt-on solution I would perhaps be able to procure the parts and
then get it to work, but not at the cost of "inventing the Wheel", to advanced for me.

Threads seem to spin out of Control here, I will be more careful what I post in the future, :mrgreen:

Just to add that I am not really a newbie working on cars, I didn't just turn 18 and got my license.
I had a garage for 15 years working on cars, I'm not saying I'm a pro but just not afraid to do stuff,
and I know my limits and I only do what I like/want to do.

I wasn't giving you a hard time, just making a point that it can be done if you really must have it. It's not quite unicorns and elves but certainly not bolt on. :mrgreen:
