    It will increase velocity, making the brakes operate better.

    You probably need a conversion joint.

    Brake fluid cooler!

    The "loop" is actully a brake fluid cooler!..I do that all the time rather than cut and re-flare a new line..ya,I'm a lazy F***! when it comes to double flaring brake lines!

    Anyone else notice all the "pre made" brake lines are either 4" too short,or a foot too long every time you go to use one??..must have taken them 20 years to figure out just the wrong length for 90% of all vehicles,huh?... :rolleyes: --I just buy the longer ones and "loop" em now.. :crazy: ..

    Yeah, the added length would have nothing to do with velocity of the fluid.

    I agree. My brake line does this also. My tranny lines run back and forth across my rad aswell. Helps with cooling.
