You know what's funny? I've bled my system twice, the pedal still feels mushy, but the car brakes just fine, as far as I can tell. I've got a brand new master cylinder, SS braided lines, and flushed the whole braking system and I've always remembered her pedal feeling mushy compared to other cars, but its the first time in six months I've actually gotten to drive her so I can't compare to how she used to be, unfortunately. But it doesn't firm up after multiple rapid presses so I don't think theres any air in the lines.

A note: get speed bleeders. They work great, bleed very rapidly and do an excellent job. I bled my entire system twice fully in about an hour, by myself.
