Yep another E series brake question......

Just a few of questions......

Does anyone know of a direct replacement for the single piston brake calliper to a 2 piston calliper for an EB falcon? Cost? Can this be done on an ABS car.

Will swapping a 6cyl master cylinder over to a XR8 master make a big difference? Or is there a better master cyl upgrade than this? (late model maybe or 4WD???). Can this be done on an ABS car?

Braided lines a worthwhile upgrade???

I need to stop a 92' EBII fairmont 351W. (nice heavy car.... )

And before you suggest it, I am considering the big 330mm Cebco upgrade. Just running through some ideas first.



Thanks a lot.

Answer:- there is no direct preplacement.

Answer:-The XR6 and XR8 run the same Master as the standard car, just a slightly uprated booster.

I can highly recomend this setup on an ED, but get set of Ultimates from Cebco, instead of their stock pads.
The stock pads are good, but the Ultimates are far better.
The kit comes with braided lines.

Try this link.


Brake upgrade.
