monster bro,

the more precise question you should ask the gurus of ZTH is what kinda from disc break you are planning to upgrade.

I think for Wira ... twin pot vented calipers are more than sufficient for good stopping power ...

I've noticed also that having metal hoses for your break system is also good since the heat in Malaysia does effect ... shall not go anymore technical here as I could be wrong ... hope the sifus here can help ...

i thin the better way is to upgrade ur pads to metallic ones, upgrading to double layer boosters also improve overall braking response.. but no offence also to upgrade to front disc 1.6.. i myself also upgrade but maintain the drum (coz now savin money to buy rear disc).. booster upgraded to 1.8 ones..

Dear All,

As per mentioned above, is it doable for the above swap. In US, there's this dude swap in 4G63T from an Evo 8 into his Evo X and made 600whp. Airtrek turbo half cuts are quite affordable and it also packs 240hp and AWD stock.

Exploring some options since i ad done 1jzvvti into my BMW coupe.
