Does an SRT have a brake proportioning valve?

I'm trying to figure out of a 03-newer viper has a proportioning valve of sorts on it for front to rear bias.

I'm putting a set of these calipers on my 73 duster, and the math indicates that I either need to run dual master cylinders or do something to bring the pressure down in the rear. I figured the viper probably had something from the factory to keep the rears from locking early (other than ABS?)?

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
Wade

Just to be clear ABS stands for anti-lock braking system which in the case of the Viper it wouldn't need a proportion valve. Proportion valves are used in disc brake cars that don't have ABS weather factory or retro-fit. A proportion valve wouldn't keep them from locking it simply evens out the braking but it seems you already know this so I'm just simply confirming what you already know.

If you still plan on using Viper brake calipers for you duster yes you will definitely need a dual master cylinder cause those are big calipers and a proportion valve plus I would make sure the brake lines to the rear are even length.

Thanks for the reply. I assumed the abs system handled most of the proportioning work, but wasn't sure if there was a mechanical valve as well, given the large amount of proportioning needed during threshold braking.

I'm not sure if I'll be running a tandem master with prop valve or dual masters with a bias bar. Considering hydroboost with a prop valve as well.
