Guys,

Is there a caliper upgrade I can consider for the standard sized discs?

I would like to do an upgrade with out the expense of the new spindle mods.

This car is just the daily streeter beater so maybe a better caliper is all I am after. Or, I will just stick with good pads on a DBA slotted rotor.


Cheers

Hi,
there are no better callipers that wil fit on- ie you cant just slap on a two pot calliper. You need to modify the spindle for the calliper to mount to.
Your only performance increase options are really better pads and discs

Yeha mate best bet is see someone who offers discounts to FM members like hightek brakes etc and get some nice big slotted/x-drilled rotors and HP pads like bendix ultimates or EBC greenstuff ... difference from stock brakes is very noticeable
