Most common part numbers (eg: Commodore and Coon) in the T2 (same slots) are $129 rrp each.

I do agree, the new non-directional design looks fantastic. It really sets them apart from the rest.

I recently upgraded the front brakes from standard AU1 to 330mm discs. I left the master cylinder etc alone but was wondering what people recommend regarding decent pedal pressure.

Seeing as how you have gone to such trouble adding those calipers and rotors, it would be better to get an AUII/III booster and master cylinder. I left the standard setup on my AUI XR6 and find that the brakes aren't as good as they could be so, I have a new booster and master cylinder to fit as soon as I can get to it. ASUII/III have a larger internal bore master cylinder and the metal booster is WAY better than the original series I plastic one.

Thanks for that. When I put a turbo on the car I also fitted an electric vacuum pump to make sure that I always had vacuum, even when under boost, but changing the master cylinder to cope with the extra fluid required with 4 pot calipers sounds like a sensible option.

Cheers.

Got caught out with my wheels. Kit said minimum 17" rims and I thought I was alright with 18" but mine were deep dish rims and they fouled on the calipers. Managed to trade them in for the new rims in the photo. Have found that wheel brochures now specify if wheels are OK with Brembo / big brakes.
