has anyone added ABS to a fox body?

I'm thinking of doing this,

How much does the abs control mod run?

Had the same post some time ago. Got this reply:

Search the Tech Site!!!

I won't say that, I'll just give you THE link.

ABS in a fox body

Looks like it is very doable, but keep in mind that the mod will bump you into SM.

On second thought, didn't the 93 Cobra come with optional ABS? Wouldn't it then be possible to add to an ESP Fox?

Why should it matter about the '93 Cobra having ABS? I thought you could backdate/update any stock part in ESP.

As I understand it, in ESP, Mustangs between 1979 and 1993 can interchange stock parts as part of the update/backdate policy.

Did and Mustang pre-1993 have ABS?

I guess you're right. They limit changes between cars only in the same model years range listed in the ESP class list. Oh well.

Slowly but surely I'm making progress. I've updated the thread over on cc.com (linked above). Tomorrow I should have the lines completed, and then I can start on the wiring. Hopefully on Monday I'll receive my new master cylinder to prop valve lines so I can install the new 1" bore MC, bleed that thing, and then bleed the whole system.
