Ladies and Gentlemens, does anyone know if the gen 3 flex brake lines to each calliper fit to the gen 2 chassis and hard lines? I need to transfer the brembos and associated brake parts from the B4 to the track car, but don't want to have to buy a set of braided lines for the gen 2 if I can reuse the gen 3 ones.

Cheers,
Ben

I doubt the rear will transfer over - the brake line follows along the trailing arm. Where as from what I understand, the gen2 has the same sort of setup on the rear as it does on the front.

If you've got the two cars there, have a look at the two setups. It'll be pretty obvious if it'll work or not...

Cheers

Might as well buy a set of generics for the track car and sell the STi ones as a set.

No on both counts.

Fronts are same fittings but use a different setup to hold the line to the strut between Gen2/3.

Rears are not even close due to Gen3 multi link rear.

Once I go through import monster and figure out how much I initially paid for them man, I'll pm you. Might be a month or 2 before they're removed from the car though. But I'm guessing you're probably in no rush lol
