As the title suggests.

Has anyone been in a position to examine both. In your opinion, what would be required to fit, say the BA XR twin-piston sets onto an EF?

Are we ultimately adding or subtracting material from the callipre?

Regards

well yes. it can be done, but it would probably be just as cheap to sell the ef/l and buy a ba. . . . .
or the cheaper option is to get an aftermarket upgrade kit. then you can have 4 pot callipers

its a bit harder than that, as you haev to worry about offset etc.

but it is being investigated and hoepfully we may have a solution very soon
Au2 brakes and ba are different but you would see a huge performance increase from putting on the au2 stuff but the fact is it isnt something you can do a straight swap over on

Going by what I've read it's a big job.
You'll need AU/BA uprights, and they won't suit EF upper and lower arms. May end up needing K frame and arms from an AU/BA.
But I haven't tried and may be wrong!
