Ok, so implementing ABS actually looks to be relatively simple.

Where are the gotchas ?

Things Im thinking of include:

1) Will non ABS disc brakes put up with being pulsed like ABS ones?
2) Evidently the 'path of least resistance' method for my install would 
be a system where the pump and valve were a single unit, but fed from a 
seperate master cylinder. The question this leads me to is one of 
pressures. Do most small car brake systems use pressures within a 
reasonably similar range, or am I going to be hunting down parts with 
particular specs? furthermore, is it possible to adjust things like 
proportioning on ABS setups, or is it hardwired in the ABS computer ?
