What size lines does everyone run? I know 3/16 in the front but do I need 1/4 to the rear? I run small metric calipers on all 4 corners and dual master cylinder, both 1 inch. Thanks

I have 3/16 on my whole car and it works fine. The bigger the line and the bigger the master the less pressure you will have. It will just give you more volume if you run the bigger lines and master. Hope this helps.

I agree. 3/16" all the way around. Another thing to consider when plumbing the system, try to run all your lines below the height of the master cyclinders (don't run them on the top rail in the rear). This will make bleeding them much easier and should improve your pedal and feel.

Chad That was my next question, where does the rear line route?
