    Guys who have flushed their system...

    How much did you use. I'm buying ATE Super Blue fluid for $12 a liter... I don't want to buy 2 liters if it's not necessary

    is 1 liter going to be enough?

    Vacuum reduction, Powdercoated misc, cruise relocate, Evo9 BOV, Custom catch cans, Russell fuel filter, SS braided fuel lines, High flow fuel loop, Autogage fuel gauge, Catless DP, DNP Y-pipe, Fuel pump hotwire.

    I used half a liter with my RBF600. Was enough for all four corners. Doesn't seem right though.

    Well, to truely flush the system you should be using two bottles total. If you want to get every bit of the fluid out that has absorbed water, it just takes that much.

    Why do you go RR, LF, LR, and RF? Shouldn't you do longest lones to the shortest lines? RR, LR, LF, RF? That's how I was told to do them anyway.

    I ALWAYS use a liter just to be on the safe side. I have a small syringe I use to suck the master cyl dry (saves pumping another 200mL+ through) and then fill it with the new stuff. Also good to have some spare to top up, and if your a manual, you can bleed the clutch at the same time. but I always buy more then less.

    To do a full flush and make sure you get ALL the old brake fluid out,... still doesn't take a full liter. Maybe 600ml to 750ml at most and that's with Stoptech's ST40 calipers up front which take more fluid than Mitsu's Sumitomo calipers. I can of ATE is good.

    You would only potentially need more than 1 can if you screw up and get air in the system and need to rebleed everything over again. The way I do it, I alternate between SuperBlue and Typ200, the different colors make it easy to see the new fluid. I make sure the master cylinder is full and then make sure to top up every 7 pumps (takes about that many to lower the level in the cylinder, but not be in danger of ingesting air in the system).

    I use Speedbleeders as I tend to bleed solo. Keep pumping and topping up till I see new fluid come out the bleeder tube (I use a Speedbleeder bag. It has a clear tube that is attached to a clear bag. Makes it real easy to see the fluid coming out and it further reduces the chances of an air bubble going up the tube. Once I see new fluid coming out, I give it another 7 pumps before I move to the next corner.

    The order is Right Rear, Left Front, Left Rear, Right Front.
