How much are each of these??

I was also reading about a new BBK (I think from Tarox) in last months Banzai or Jap Perf Cars Mag that sounded very good and would come in at about £1,200.

AP would be my choice, but only as they are the only ones I've heard of, and 99% of reports have been positive.

I'd go with Tarox 6 Pots, they are £1495.
You would install Tarox 6 pots on rear? You know answer my question?

Leave the rear brakes alone. Buy some Ferodo DS2500 pads and leave them like that!

And for the front, dont get Tarox!! Get either AP Racing or StopTech, Tarox are not even close to being in the same league!!!

I see what your asking, it may be possible to move the OEM front set to the rear and then upgrade the front, a few hours with some tools may be needed but i would hazzard a guess its too much effort.

As you have a FN2 and in the absence of anyone else having tried, have a play but i would think even if the disc fitted then some sort of caliper mount would be needed and thats a little bit more engineering for 1 off specials :cool:

I've bought already Tarox 330mm 10-pots F2000 Brake Discs and I think it was good choice.

A cheaper solution would be Brambo 4 pot calipers with 300mm discs used by Integra Type R DC5. I found this kit in good condition and price.

Perhaps is enough, but not for me ... Could you imagine what difference is between 4pots and 10 pots? Probably BIG!

Cheers

Also found at Brembo calipers with 6 pots. Tarox made in Taiwan can not be compared with famous company Brembo.
