    I am looking to do the 13" 99-04 Cobra/Mach 1 brake upgrade to the SHO, but want to go with braided brake lines. I see SHO Source and others selling these, but not sure if they work with the 13" Calipers. Seems like the caliper hole is further away than the GT. Does anyone have any experience with running new brake lines with this setup?
    I measured the distance from the calipers mached up on the car:
    RF: ~26.5"
    LF: ~24.5"
    RR: ~24.5"
    LR: ~24.5"

    Rear line is stock so nothing changing there. The Cobra setup appears to need about 1-2" more to mate up. Unless I am just measuring wrong... :confused:

    Almost ready to get these, but was wanting to know if anyone can double check my thoughts on the male connector below. When I was talking with the brake guy on the phone he said he was showing three different sizes depending on which system he looked.

    This is the left front (driver side) brake line fitting. I am thinking its a 3/8" x 24 fitting. Does this sound about right?

    The Gen3 brake lines are a mess. Basically buy 4 new lines, take them in and have new lines made. The fittings are different for all ends.
