Quick update! With the TL ABS pump in place, the plug converted and the yaw sensor wired in - IT WORKS!!!!!

Was able to use the wiring in the Element to successfully get the ECU to talk to the ABS pump. Now I can design the conversion bracket to safely mount the TL ABS pump to the Element bracket.

Victory!

Now that I know the ECU is talking to the ABS pump, I need to be able to mount it so I can adjust the brake lines to mate with it.

I designed an adapter plate that had the bolt pattern for both so I can bolt the plate to the Element bracket and the bolt the pump to it. Both pumps share one bolt hole so that helped.

My first design had an issue with the pump making contact with the two nuts that fasten the plate to the bracket.



So I had to amend the design to space the pump enough to clear the nuts.



This should do the trick. Going to print it tomorrow.

Alright we’re in business!

The new converter plate design worked perfectly.

Bolted the plate to the TL pump.



Wont have bolt head clearances anymore. Could have probably went shorter but didn’t want to risk having to re-print.



Then bolted the pump to the Element bracket.





Ready to install!


Took me about 45 minutes to persuade the brake lines to go in their right homes. Used the schematics from both cars to make sure they were going to the right places. Looks factory!!


Plugged in and ready to rock!

The J-Element

Now that the ABS/VSC and the relay for the o2 sensors are squared away, time to get back to the exhaust. I'd love to be able to crank this thing up at night without waking the neighbors.

I couldn't find an affordable option for the pre-cat flanges so I measured and drew them out and had a friend cut them with his CNC plasma cutter. Now I've got 4 so I can make extensions from the pre-cat to the stock j-pipe. I'm going to attempt to make this a bolt-on affair so I can either find a nice cat-back exhaust or at least have one made from a logical starting point.
