Brakes

Post by AlexJ on Fri 25 Sep 2009, 06:22

Anyone got any 266/283mm brake calipers and discs? I need new pads anyway so figure i may as well get some bigger ones at the same time! 266 preferably for like 25.

247- 1.4,1.6,1.8,1.9D,1.9DT
266 -XSI, HDI, old S16
283 -GTI, newer S16

If you put 283 in a car that used to have 247, you may need to change the MC to prevent excessive brake travel, but a lot of people don't bother, 247-266 and 266-283 there is no need to change the MC

247 Will let you put any wheels on the car from 14" up
266 Will let you put almost any wheels on the car but Harries(14") scrape on the calipers
283 Needs 15" alloys

Then you can go up to 330 brembo's off the 406 coupe, but you only really need them if you're going up to SC-6 Standards

yeah 15" minimum for gti6 283mm

another option alot of the gti6 lads go for is the xantia v6 disc (285mm iirc) with the 406 brembo calipers and you can fit cyclones with a 3mm spacer

I have a set of 266mm Calipers from a 2000 plate 206 GTi. They have been cleaned and painted red and never been fitted.

The only problem, is that I am missing the Caliper yoke. So you would have to find replacement ones of these. Around 50-60 at Pug.

20 for the calipers? Hoses are removed/new bleed nipples.
