Vorshlag E36 ABS Pump Relocation Bracket Kit


Note: This component is not designed to work with right-hand drive E36 vehicles.

This cart entry is for one of Vorshlag's factory E36 ABS hydraulic pump unit relocation bracket kits (we make one for the 3-channel and another for the 4-channel), necessary for our E36 chassis LS1 swaps. When installing an LS1 engine into these cars, the stock location of the ABS unit is "inside" where our Vorshlag full length headers reside. We recommend relocation the hydraulic unit to the front left corner of the car, as shown in the pictures below.

Note: This product entry is for the Vorshlag bracket and bracket mounting hardware - not the brake lines

These Vorshlag relocation brackets are made from laser cut plate steel, designed and bent here at Vorshlag, then zinc plated for corrosion resistance. The brackets have integral holes for attachment to the chassis. All hardware is included for installation of the bracket and hydraulic unit, including bolts, nuts and the BMW sourced plastic nut for the chassis stud. We also include three new BMW sourced bushings, bushing cups and locking nuts to attach the ABS unit to the bracket.

We offer both a 3 channel and 4 channel bracket (the pump unit on the 4-channel is longer). The differences are year specific: 1992-1994 model E36 cars use the 3-channel, and the 1996-99 M3s and 328 cars have a 4-channel ABS units. The 4 channel ABS units are easy to spot - they have 6 screw-in connections for hard lines instead of 5 (3 channel systems). Again - this is all keyed off the model year of the chassis.

Since the ABS unit is being relocation, you will also need to re-make the hard lines from the brake master cylinder, make hard lines to the 3 or 4 brake channels, and the two low pressure supply lines from the reservoir. This is a considerable amount of brake hard line bending, flaring and fabrication - so we offer complete kits to swap the brake hard lines, available separately. Some DIY folks like to "roll their own" so we offer the bracket alone, as a lower cost option.
