I always thought that you needed residual valves if the master cylinder was lower than the brake calipers, like in a 32 ford hot rod with the master on the frame.

Probably won't hurt, but if you're running a firewall mounted master, then you likely didn't need them.

what psi is the valve? most of them are for converting down to drum brakes.

2lb. for disc brakes is perfect, I tried to run without one and I had to double pump my brakes every time to stop. Take it out and see if you notice the difference.
