Depends which Brembo's you're refering to???

I'm not sure what the last guy has against Brembo but they are the World's leading brake manufacturer, so of course they have a brake that will stop 500BHP. Anyway, Movit and Stoptech are old Brembo calipers in disguise ;)

If you want the cheapest option the standard calipers with Performance Friction 2-piece discs and carbon metallic pads will work.

Otherwise, you need to upgrade to a larger disc and caliper conversion, where any number of brake manufacturers offer a kit...but you'll probably still want the Carbon Metallic's to slow that beasty down! :D

There are a few options, that could be acceptable. Depends on your budget.
The standard Brembo brakes, in good condition (calipers that have done high mileage of hard driving, could be in need of a rebuild and could even be distorted slightly.
After that 1st step would PF 2 piece discs and PF pads (they seem to work well together, but those pads are very hard on other people's discs).
Beyond that there are 2 or 3 options, the best being from AP or Alcon. Give Gavin at Co-ordSport a call (01384 216102) to discuss in detail and get an interesting deal.

mmmmm, not sure how you worked that one out dude! :confused:

Do you want to keep the original Brembo calipers (which there's nothing wrong with)?

Yes - then go for the PFC disc and pad package...I have this and it's awsome

No - so you want to spend lots of money on a 6-pot conversion with larger discs, where yes you want to buy the AP kit or even Brembo...but don't let 123456 hear me say that :crackup:

As before, carbon metallic is a type of pad that is very good for performance, but if you use a cheap disc it will chew it up for breakfast.

Hope this helps :)

i am looking at putting brembos all round now my question is will these brembos support 500bhp or not???????

john....
Now Mitsie and I have finished bickering :crackup: your original question "I am looking at....." If you don't have the Brembo's on already, and only have the smaller RS set up (pin sliders ?)
You will without question need a 6 pot set up and maybe 4 pots for the rear, what ever make you choose .....
I wouldn't go out and buy the 4/2 setup with 500 bhp. You will probably end up regreting it .
