I want to put EVO 6-9 brembos on FN2 but not sure about the caliper brackets. Anyone here that could advise the brackets size/where to buy them, etc?

Requires some self fabrication (or someone else to do it)
Stoney was the first member to do it and he gave me instructions so he is probably your best bet. Since then a few others have done it, if all the same im not sure, but they may be able to shed further light on it :)

Once its done though you shall have huge stopping power :)

First way

Buy DC5 Brembos, some s2000 discs and DC5 pads of your choice and if you can afford it FN2 braided lines and a decent fluid, standing on your brakes will hurt your neck :D


Second way


Buy Evo 5-9 Brembos, Evo 9 Discs of your choice, Pads of your choice and again lines and fluid, the fun part :) you need to mock up the disc and caliper on the hub to find the difference in centrelines and make it work.

Some people make a bracket but I extended the lower Brembo leg, filled in the lower hole with weld and redrilled to suit the FN2 hub bolt, then machine off the caliper to make the centre lines match ( you need a lathe- must be 100% true) and you have to split the calipers!!!!!!


Brackets although good do mean 2 extra bolts that can come loose/ need checked. In my eyes my method is bullet proof and proven by me anyway.


You will kiss your steering wheel ;)

PS when stepping up to a multipot caliper you must use racing fluid and braided lines imo, the area that you are filling with each press of the pedal is much larger than the stock calipers and imo you have to maximise the pressure available from the master cylinder .

Depends on your budget tbh

Look the nuts

I want EVO brembos because they are sligthly bigger with higher stopping power + I don't like when things are too easy :D:D I already have motul rbf660, doluck brake lines, ebc yellow stuff pads, drilled/grooved rotors.. not enough!
I'm also considering using rear 2-pot brembos on rear end, hydraulic handbrake + old cable handbrake with small parking calipers from willwod ;) but not just yet, need to sort the front calipers first but I think it will be pretty interesting braking setup :cool:

just look out for massive heat build-up with this set and spacers of some 20mm size. I am using this set for a couple of months and it is a problem which I hope may be fixed by fitting additional brake cooling mod.

what is the braking performance compared to stock brakes?
as for spacers I'm running oz alleggeritas so it should be possible to use it without any spacers (haven't measured it yet)
what rotors are you using (stock EVO 320x32mm rotors?)? what about the calipers brackets/adapters design? some photo of the setup would help (from the inside of the wheels) ;)
