    Using an EWP as an auxiliary pump to the mechanical

    I contemplated adding an EWP to mine, ensuring it was located at a low point in the system, to help with priming and getting the air out. I don’t see a downside to having one if you have the space.

    YAHB (Yet another hopeful builder)

    I'm using the Tesla caliper, but instead of an off the shelf controller, I'm using an arduino. The benefit here is I read the vehicle speed from the ECU and can vary the brake pressure based on speed, allowing me to use the electric caliper as an emergency brake as well as a parking brake.
