SS brake lines

For those of you who have replaced your stock lines with SS braided or whatever (RTE EE etc..) did you notice any improvement in braking. I imagine it would be negligable but I just thought Id ask.

Poor gas mileage gets you to the best places on earth

I noticed better braking, but that could have been attributed to new fluid and bleeding the system.

From the many I have sold, the guys that are replaceing old cracked hoses notice a difference, but if the hoses were good you hardly notice anything different.
