I bought the wrong valve, there is a m10 valve available, check wildwoods website, and the booster from a 98 should work, check 2nd page of this post.
Only issue I have had is when I pump my brakes a bunch or in stop and go traffic it acts as a huge vacuum leak and causes car to hesitate and eventually die.
I suspect it is my oxygen air/fuel ratio sensor that is bad
Causing the problem. Also have the dreaded p0125 cts code which may also be causing this.

Bringing it back for people who are looking...

I ordered the m10 prop valve. Having trouble with pedal movement though. I used the stock GS brake fork and put an extension on but its too long. Have to cut it down some :X

Did anyone else who did this conversion on their 2JZ lose speedometer display? I heard it was tied into the VSC ecu. I don't get a speed reading anymore.

I thought about doing the same thing. I'm assuming you don't get any issues with the traction control or throttling?

Did anyone have an issue where the brake pedal swing is very long to full lock? Almost like to the floor, brakes still work it just seems like I have to press really far down to get anything. I have adjusted the rod extension between the booster and MC but that ends up locking the brakes up to where they dont release. I have tried to adjust the pedal. The only thing I did different was use the avalon pedal fork with an nut welded on, The length came out the exact same though.

I know this is a little late of a reply. I bought the 3/16 brake tees and they donít work. Did you actually get metric ones? If so, what size?
