Standalone VS ABS…

Contemplating a standalone ECU. Does that mean I would loose the OEM ABS system? I definitely want to keep it…

thanks!
Depends on the standalone kit and how much of the OEM CANBUS/ssystem you end up keeping. IF you went with a typical standalone that replaces everything, you would lose OEM ABS. Supposedly the FP350S ABS unit can work on its own, tho. I think @Black Boss has done this conversion. I haven't done it myself - waiting on a buddy who is installing a standalone ECU + FPS350S ABS module to see how his works out.

Looking into Motec. Maybe it can just send the right CAN bus signal to the ABS and voila?! wishful thinking!
