What is a big brake upgrade?
Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

A big brake upgrade, is when one needs to up grade due to fitting a bigger higher HP engine .
Tuning the original engine to more than 100hp of the original hp eg, from original 150 to 250 hpor more.

The original brake rotors and brake calipers are bigger air vented,and bigger 4 - 6 piston calipers .

Thanks Greg, that was exactly how I understood it. I was seeking independent verification as I am in a dispute with a guy who described a car having such an upgrade, but the only change is larger rotors on the front everything else is stock.

Hi Jas .

LOL. If the same calipers are used then this is not an upgrade but just for show.
