    Hey guys, I have an option of getting some brembos (4pots) from an evo 5 which i believe are the same as an evo 6. Would they be okay for and upgrade and does anyone know where I could get some carriers. Any help would be great, even if it is to smash my hope of finally upgrading my brakes.

    get some boxster s 4 pots - they're a popular and good value for money upgrade - also the 4 pots allow you to utilise the current 312mm disc size if you wish. I'd be unsure about the evo ones only because i haven't heard of carriers being made for them to apapt to our cars..! could be wrong though!

    Cheers for the help, I thought that but I guess you see a bargain and your head runs wild.

    work out what model of brembo they are, they are unlikely to be made for the evo

    i believe the Evo brembos are lug mount, rather than radial, which means they're somewhat harder to fit to alternative cars.
