    I have a willwood prop. valve for the rear brakes. So I can do the big smokey burnouts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    If you don't want to spend the $80 I would just take yours apart and clean it out. If you do want to use the wilwood prop valve I would still clean out your stock combo. valve and not put back in the prop valve part so you still have the idiot light. I have the wilwood valve in my garage...just have to find the time to put it in and that is how I am going to do it.
