    Are the calipers available in black? And what car are the discs from? Thanks

      They can be red or carbon or yellow at no extra cost :)

        Ok guys, I've just spoken to the caliper supplier, and those Brembos have gone up massively.
        The kit above would be well over the 600, it's looking more like 750-770 now depending on the bracket manufacturing costs.

        A better option would be putting the kit together using the lighter Wilwood Superlite calipers. I'll put another thread up with the costs for a one-off and a order for 2+ and see what you think.

          We bought the Wilwood kit from Freaky parts and are very happy with cost and performance, so Thanks again for that! but now we want to improve the rears, a bit on a budget, just rebuild them or make some later rear huds and calipers fit? but we want to keep our 4 stud wheels? This question must have been asked loads so sorry if everyone's bored with it but can't fiond much except just rebuild the standard? Cheers A and Em.
          Oh, it's a E3 with 17" wheels.

            You just push the 4 stud hub into the wheel bearing. You're not stuck having to run 5 stud if you swap the rears to later Evo type.

            TBH, all you need to do is put better pads and discs in the rear. Hardly anyone has fitted uprated rear calipers, unless they've went and done a full hub swap and fitted much bigger front calipers, like a full front and rear Brembo set from a later Evo.

            Can't get a better price when on a budget than that.

              The fastest circuit evo here in NZ (a very rapid evo 2rs) runs factory rear calipers and discs with race pads
              HKS CT230R runs factory rear calipers and discs with race pads

              2 of my mates have upgraded their evo's rears to Porsche 6 pots and larger discs and neither noticed a radical difference in braking performance.

              I really don't think its worth the time money and effort to be honest.

                If you've got nice deep pockets we can do a kit for the rears, but the cost vs reward is quite significant.
                Personally, a decent set of discs/pads and refurbishing the caliper with new sliders, seals etc will see a decent improvement.
