    You need the lines, resevoir, and i think the pump. Make sure you get all the lines.

    It should all bolt up on the driver side, existing holes and everything.

    You want to put your sohc pump on the dohc or adapt dohc pump to existing brake lines? if the dohc pump is different, you need to replace lines as they said and make your master cylinder will accept these lines. Then you might have to check how much pressure this pump puts out compared to the old one. But, like they said swap lines. If you have too much pressure in the lines, leaks will pop up or braking may become altered and unsatisfactory. Also, when you do the swap BLEED THE BRAKES to get the air and junk out of the lines.

    um.. about as easy as breathing. you move the resivoir to the other tower.... and you unbolt the SOHC lines... and bolt in the DOHC lines.... everything swaps easy as pie. you need a dohc resivoir.
