If you make a heat shield to go around the ABS it should be ok

to answer your question no its not ok. your abs will overheat and malfunction.

build a heat sheild for it or wrap it up in exhaust wrap but even then i would still get a heat shield made up.

a sponser on here by the name of topstage makes some awesome carbon fiber ones but they are extremely pricey

and I've been to track and slide days, and raced autokharnas with it lol.

nothing ever breaks down on cue yeah it might have lasted 12, 18 months but one day it will let go and its when you least expect it. would you rather spend 300-400 to get a good heat shield made up or would you like your abs to fail and you hit another car or worse person.

I would definately be putting a heat shield around the ABS module. I would hate to have to replace it, very costly.

the problem is...there is no space left for putting the abs heat shield, the gap its about 1 cm far.i must move a little bit the abs so there will be enough space to put the heat shield...maybe i will put the heat wrap...anyway thanks for the comment
