Lock Resistant Brake System?

HI I'm in the process of converting my brakes over to disc and was wondering if anybody knows anything about LBS (LOCK RESISTANT BRAKE SYSTEM). Since i'm doing a conversion my stock proportiioning valve won't work and if the price for the coorect valve is similiar to the LBS I might try it (if I understand correct you don't need a proportioning valve with LBS). There sold at http://www.dpiracingproducts.com Any help would be great.

It is used for any brake sytem as far as I know make model doesn't really matter. What i'm trying to figure out if this prouct is legit or a gimmick and if it will replace a p-valve for a cheaper then a new p-valve. More info here http://dpiracingproducts.com/product...Systems#DPILBS click on info. Thanks

It's not really an anti-lock system. The info page seems to be legit, but I'm not sure you need it. The proportioning valve DOES limit pressure to the rear brakes. I'd go to www.mpbrakes.com and buy a proportioning valve for under $100. You will need to reroute a couple lines under the hood, but if you don't mind DIY shouldn't be more than $50 (likely much less) for that. I didn't check the price on the LBS, but I'm sure it's more! The LBS unit might work instead of a standard proportioning valve because it delays pressure to the rear. But the back brakes will still lock before the front ones. That will happen in some situations with a standard proportioning valve too though.
