hi guys, what do you's think about this?
Cheaper than a new PBR/Cebco/Brembo setup but as good or better?

Cebco sells these kits. You are better off buying it complete from them with warranty and EVERYTHING. That kit looks like it doesn't have uprights or anything!

Yes I seen them a few days ago but without the stub axles there is no point unless you already have an EL GT or FBT.

Yeah but that place does it in a dodgy offset which is between eseries and au so you need to try and get the right wheels to fit. Im not sure about the offset on the cebco stuff but I think that it is standard eseries. Could be wrong but pyroays car had ap racing calipers etc on it and originally it had el gt mags on it.

Cebco kit also alters the offset.

ok cool thought I read somewhere that cebco had a spacer that does something to the offset but wasn't sure. I am guessing that pyroay maybe had a different ap racing setup then as I would've thought that the gt wheels being 8.5 inch would hit the guards when there is an increased offset especially with lowered suspension. On my car they seem to be pretty close with standard offset. Once again I could be wrong though.

I thought we'd been through that argument and the answer was that the Cebco kit didn't.

Just sent an email to John at Cebco asking about offset etc. Will see if he replys and post it up.

I dunno, I had a look on some thread on FF with a picture of an EF with the Cebco kit and it had a spacer on it.
Either way I don't give, I'm still going to get a brake upgrade kit at some point next year!

I received an email this morning from Cebco . . . .

- We keep the offset as is, we have sold many of these systems without issue.
- No, I don't do a 6 Piston.
- Sorry, I won't sell the system less parts or with foreign parts because we know the system works as is without issue.
Once you fit it and then still wish to alter its design, go for it! Note: The pads I developed for this system are very good road pads.
They are low in dust and quite kind to the disc rotors. If you try other pads you may introduce a more aggressive pad which may
lead to accelerated rotor wear. Be aware of this because these discs are $350ea plus freight to replace plus the cost of fresh bolts/nuts.

Sorry I need to break some bad news...
As of 1.10.07, I need to pass on Billet and Labour increases that I have absorbed for the last 3 years...
The new price for EA-AU Brake Systems is $4,350 plus freight/insurance.
Sorry about that but its something that can't be avoided.

Regards
John

So as you can see the offset isn't changed which is awesome as you can keep your Pre Au wheels if the brakes physically fit under them. Bad news is that the price has gone up but it is only $350 which when you are already paying $4000 I don't think it really matters that much. By the way this is for the AP racing 4 piston caliper with 330mm slotted DBA rotors kit.

Exy - specially if that other mob is going to be doing a 4 pot for 2 grand something - i can live with an altered offset.
