Default LF:+2 or +2.5 Size Complete Brake Kit

Hi
as in the title I am looking for a complete used kit to upgrade the stock brake system to 312 or 323mm rotors, 4 piston caliper w carriers/adapter, and 1.8T/VR6 spindle.

If you got something for the rears it'd be even better.

Please let me know if you have any leads.

Cheers

Berk

Hi Berk,

I am very happy with my HPA kit. It uses 355 mm Front 6 piston and 335mm Rear 4 piston. The rear design deletes the screw type e-brake calliper and uses a drum style that goes inside the hub of the rear disc. Works great and allows the rear calliper to get the 4 piston design rather than just one like the VW design.

We got these so that we can stop our 2,000 lbs trailer if the trailer brakes should not work
when needed.

We had to do the VR6 spindle swap as well. It seems that VW never thought these TDI cars could go fast enough to really need bigger brakes so we got the little parts (probably from a MK2 or whatever they had lying around)!

Google "HPA Motorsports" if you are interested. They have sales on these kits from time to time.

Thanks PB_NB
I would like to stay on my 17" and those kits are out of my budget (not sure it would be wise for me to invest something that would be worth more than the car)

appreciated the feedback thou..

Cheers
Berk

Ya they are a bit pricy but maybe a slightly used set can be found. I know that there are some Brembos out there on used sites.

I know about wheels and my snows are on 18" rims and the rims are full of brakes, with the old brakes I could throw a football through the gaps between the rotor and the rim.

I going to put my 19 inch summers on soon and see how much space I have.

couple questions to be sure

1. I got set of brand new wheel bearings for TDI and wondering if I could use them on VR6 spindle.
2. Multi piston callipers usually go on 30mm + rotors in terms of thickness. Can a multi-piston calliper be installed on 22mm rotor? (roughly 1cm thinner)

Those bearings will work. I did the same when I upgraded the brakes on Wifey's car.
