XD brake upgrade?

I`m still running the original 6cyl brake set up on my car.

Any suggestions on the best upgrade that will cope with a 500 horse clevo?

Cheers

2 quick options to consider are:
- twin piston VT/AU style with ~300mm disc
- Brembo 4 pot with 330mm disc, need 17" wheels for this

But as xbgs351 said, run a search for "brake upgrade" and you will find a lot of reading
