DIY: How to Rebuild Subaru Brembos As most car enthusiasts know, when it comes to braking Brembo is the name in quality and stopping power. Many high performance cars now come from the factory equipped with these high end brake sets and while they perform extremely well for years on end and in harsh conditions, they do eventually need to be rebuilt or repainted. In this DIY I’m going to cover how I performed both services on all 4 calipers

I bought these Project Mu brake pads a few months ago but I was waiting for my Hawks HP+ to die a lot more before replacing them, so I wanted to do a quick review on both brake pads. I really enjoy the Project Mu brake pads from my last two track days due to the modularity of them. Also, they don’t dust anywhere near as much, and they don’t scream (which my eardrums appreciate but I mildly miss my

So two years ago when I first got the car and knew nothing about anything, The first thing we did to the car was replace the brakes. For a while I’ve had stopping power issues. Nothing major but noticeable enough to cause concern. At first I thought maybe it was the lines or pads. So yesterday we took the wheel off to change the front pads to find out that one of the slide pins on the passenger side

If there is one thing you can do to add an understated improvement to your car, it’s a brake upgrade. The average non-car person won’t be as impressed by your upgraded brake set-up, but real car people will happily drool over them. Luckily, they don’t have to be expensive, AND they make your car safer. Most 350Z’s came equipped with boring cast iron calipers not too different from those on a Maxima or Altima. These can easily be transformed

I went to my second-ever track day at Buttonwillow when my 2007 Ford Mustang GT had about 18,000 miles on it. Towards the end of the day as the temperature rose North of 85 degrees I started noticing the brake pedal getting softer and softer. Coming up on a turn I’d start to brake and initially the brakes would bite, but as I pushed harder towards the end of the longer straights the pedal pushed closer to the floor

So you want a big brake kit for your E46 but there are so many options available, you have no idea how to narrow them down. Don’t worry, I went through this not too long ago with my E46 M3. First, we need to look at why you want a big brake kit. Are you looking for some bling behind your wheels? Do you want some bling mixed with some improved performance? Or is this a weekend track car/full

Brake upgrades are sometimes overlooked, especially to those who are relatively new to the car modification world. It is probably the single most important system to consider when diving into a serious performance modification project. It always feels tempting to focus on more “fun” upgrades like a tune or supercharger or something crazy but it’s important to remember that you have to be able to harness the power. A high performance brake system is not only an essential safety

One of the most common things that people will do to a car is start adding horsepower as soon as they bring the car home, immediately making appointments for tunes, buying new intakes, ordering cam kits, etc. However, I would argue that it doesn’t matter how quickly you can get from zero to sixty if you can’t get from sixty back to zero without putting your car into a wall. Enter, the braking system. One of the most important,

Often when upgrading a car to perform better enthusiasts tend to stick to either ways to improve the power to weight ratio or to upgrade the suspension components that directly affect the handling. What tends to get overlooked though, is the braking system. Better brakes allow you to apply the brakes closer to a corner and increase the amount of time you spend at high speeds. This is a proven way to reduce lap times but sometimes you just

New @powerstopbrakes Z23 pads and rotors came in! Hopefully I'll be able to put them and my new wheel bearings on before I leave to go hunting, otherwise they'll have to wait till the end of the month... ________________________________________________________________ tuning glijetta gli #mkv

I've been toying with the idea of getting 06-07 STI calipers for me bake upgrade. They would be the 3:2 piston, red calipers. I even found an adapter bracket for the back and I'd just need to cut the front dust plate. My hesitation is how much better would a 3:2 setup be on an already proper brake build to a 2:1 piston caliper setup? I'd be getting SS lines, street/track pads, street rotor blanks, Motul fluid,

As the time has come for new brakes, I'd like to repaint my calipers! I don't want to do a generic red, and I'm thinking either gold or a purple as I plan on getting a gold or purple diamond shift knob in the near future! Let me know which color I should go with!

Front end starting to come together. Powered dual piston Legend calipers in bronze. Should go very nicely with the DEP. As of now, the front bumper and full kit are off being painted also. #Acura
