The Chase Bays Brake Line Relocation for 88-91 Civic / CRX and 90-93 Integra with Brake Booster Eliminator (BBE) is designed for enthusiasts who want to eliminate engine bay clutter and improve braking performance by;
• Relocating the brake lines in a much more practical way. (aka Brake Line Tuck or Tucked Brake Lines)
• Replacing the factory proportioning valve / block with our Adjustable Bias Valve.
• Deleting ABS, if applicable
• Compensating for the different outlets of the Brake Booster Eliminator.
The OEM brake hard lines are relocated and replaced and with -3AN stainless steel braided, Teflon PTFE lined, black PVC coated lines. We use the best components in the industry and we pressure test every line we assemble. We guarantee a leak free start up if this product is installed correctly.

This kit is sold with inBay or inInterior options. The inBay keeps all the lines in the engine bay and mounts the Adjustable Bias Valve to a master cylinder bolt. We have designed the lines to route in the best path possible. Low on the firewall, behind steering column, under frame rail…however we find is the best look while remaining easy to install. Plus, of course, a safe distance from high heat and/or moving objects.
The inInterior kit relocates the lines and Adjustable Bias Valve on the interior side of the firewall. In most cases there is just one or two lines in the engine bay. It requires drilling 6 holes in the firewall, removing the dash, and tightening 30+ Brake Line connections. The inBay is a more popular purchase but for those wanting to completely crazy tucked engine bay look, inInterior is the way to go.
The Brake Line Relocation replaces all of the engine bay hard lines up to the lines in the fenderwell. It does not include the fenderwell to caliper lines. Those are available separately here. The 2 front to rear lines are adapted by tubing cutting each line to length (inside the car just before the firewall / kick panel), sliding the supplied tube nut and sleeve on, and flaring to 37º degrees using a proper flare tool. Below we have included links to our recommended tools. Lastly, the tube nut will thread directly onto the F fitting male threads.

Proportioning Valve & Bias Valve - The component that alters the difference in front and rear pressure. In most cases, the front needs more. Almost all of our Brake Line Relocations include an Adjustable Bias Valve.
ABS - Anti-Lock Brake System. Sometimes needed, sometimes not. How you determine this is up to you but if you have any questions we can provide insight.
