Any EB Brake conversions?

Has anyone here given their EA-ED falc a brake upgrade (asside from drilled/slotted standard rotors)

If so, what did you do, cost? Effectiveness?

Any Calliper upgrades????


I just really need ideas for my EB351 project. To be complianced it needs 'more than standard' brakes.

Best thing to do would be to talk to Cebco, or Racebrakes.
I have a Cebco Twin piston 330mm upgrade on my ED XR6, best money ive ever spent.

Re: Any EB Brake conversions?

Is twin piston calipers with standard diameter drilled/slotted discs with XR8 booster considered a reasonable upgrade? Much of a difference?

Re: Any EB Brake conversions?

ScoopED, im not sure how you would go fitting them up, you still have to modify the upright to fit the caliper on.

Do a search in the Brake tech area, there is my thread called, "Boot full of scrap"
This will give you an idea what has to be done to the uprights.

Re: Any EB Brake conversions?

I did the EL GT brake setup after market. 330mm rotor twin piston calipers, modified spindle as per cebco all for under $1500. I work for Coventrys so staff price comes in handy.
