just gotta watch for some of the brake conversions out there.. there have previously been big kits done a bit dodgy, things like straps from upright to callipers that were not up to task and would put exxsive and unusual wear on pads and rotors, having them kick out and such.

i have been to the cebco brakes site and their top of the range kits go for 5 grand, and as stated above its not just a simple swap calipers and drive off, almost everything has to be modified. i have also emailed the company and they outlined everything that had to be done which dosnt seem to had to do, its just their time spent making the desings ect.

im looking at the 330mm $5000 kit, if im going to spend money i might aswell go all out

$5k? Most expensive front end package from cebco is only about $4k. The reason no one has really done any RPD into the E series is that no one buys them. There isn't really a market and it has even taken cebco ages to recover their research costs.

I emailed that ebay seller and he said he will be doing similar e-series kits in a few weeks.

I've been emailing Joe regarding his kits for the past 6months. A few weeks ago he said he was too busy doing gas conversions and had put the brake kits on hold.


He is flat chat with LPG installs at the moment ... and will be for many months.
