Evo IV Brembo Conversion

Over the last few weeks I've sourced, relacquered and fitted (with the help of my Dad) a full set of front and rear Brembo calipers, disks and pads from an Evo 6.
This is the first big modificaton I've made to the car. They definately make a difference to the braking capability of the car over the original setup. I can imagine them being fantastic once I've replaced the used disks and pads with some new ones.

Here's some pics of the progress...

Is this upgrade as simple as sourcing some Brembo's, pads and discs from an Evo 5 or 6?

Yes, but Brembos won't fit under the IV's standard wheels

Yes I believe all Brembo set ups from Evo 5-9 will fit, but as xs said they dont fit under 16" wheels . You need 17's with the correct offset or wheel spacers so that the spokes dont hit the calipers on the front.

Assuming the IV's brakes are the same as the early evo's you'd be suprised how good they can be with good discs / pads / fluid and braided hoses.

and the surface area of the pads on the brembos is hardly any any different to the non brembo !

Do you need new longer bolts when fitting this upgrade or are the old standard bolts long enough?

Also must you mod the rear dust shield on the 4s when fitting rear brembos?

The bolts from the 4 callipers aren't long enough, you need the ones that attached the Brembo callipers to the car that they were previously fitted to.

Yes you do need to mod the rear dust shield (or remove it completely) if you're fitting the rear Brembos too, as it has a lip that goes right around the edge of the original disk that will not fit the over the larger disks used in the upgrade.

Yeah probably, or any other fastening outlet. Just make sure you get the right size and thread pitch.
