    Not having a 40/40 prop valve will bias the pressure to the front brakes. Not a dangerous situation, but you won't be getting the most out of the swap. On my old car my disk swap lacked the correct prop valve. The car never quite felt right under heavy braking. My new car has the exact setup except with a 40/40 valve. Feels much better.

    What car did you get the rear arms off of?

    Your original E-brake cables will not work. They are made for drum brakes and have a ball shaped end on the cable. Very similar to a peddle bike's brakes.
    The ones you need can come from a 90-93 integra and are shaped like a U with a pin going through them to secure them, and a cotter pin for safety.
