You don't need ABS until a kid walks out in front of you and your wheels lock up...

You dont plan to have an accident mate. I'd just relocate it to be on the safe side...

The ABS is crap anyway. Yes you can remove it, you will need all the front brake lines from a non ABS Falcon.
You probably should remove the ABS computer too which is under the dash on the far right.

But you can also work round it too. Theres enough room for 3in piping.
