converting disc brakes to abs
does anyone know how to do this? is this even possible? how much would this cost to do it on the stock brake discs?
lets say thers a celica that has brake discs without abs, is it possible to install abs on it, and how hard is it? how much does it cost?

I've looked into this. VERY expensive. The adapters that add to the brake system that determine when your wheels lock up are a thousand dollars per wheel. And that's just the START of it. I've been in a couple situations where I wished I had ABS. But your best bet is saving your money and putting it towards a different car that already has them from the factory. Sorry.

you also have to buy the computer that goes in the center console, that's not going to be cheap eek

Yep, this definately isn't worth it. You'd be better off just getting better brakes.
