Re: Some more brake upgrades for the 116.

I've just found a couple discs suitable for conversions in addition to the well known GTA 305x28 and 330x32 discs:

Brembo 09.8003.10 (285x28, 5x98) From various models (Citroen, Peugeot, Fiat, etc..)
Brembo 09.7680.20 (310x32, 5x98) From various models (Citroen, Peugeot, Fiat, etc..)

Hope this helps

So, with th...

Difference between SZ vs GTV6 brakes

We all know here that the front SZ discs (284x24mm), when available, were a direct replacement for the standard GTV6 ones (269x22mm). I've also read that the front calipers were the same 2 piston Brembos as in the GTV6, so: Can anyone confirm that the masses/spindles were different? I bet that this ...

Kevin, thank you very much for your advice and then, experimentally, see if I need more stopping power/heating resistance

Budget brake upgrade for track days?

Hi, I've seen tons of different BBK's here which look awesome, but, is that really a must for a (stock) 3 liter GTV6 for track days? I assume that the first points are: check/rebuild master cylinder + check/rebuild calipers + Good brake fluid + good pads, but above this, what would be the next-step ...

Re: Some more brake upgrades for the 116-Barry

Thanks, Killaz. I'll check the ET of my Azevs, although I think it's the same as yours.

Great! Keep me posted ;-)

Re: Some more brake upgrades for the 116-Barry

I have a set of AZEV 16x7.5" wheels, so I guess there's room for the 305mm discs and GTA calipers.
Nobody could fit them without cutting/welding the hub's ears (don't know if that's the right name for it :-S)?

Re: Some more brake upgrades for the 116-Barry

Thanks, I checked the pics again and they are very different.
Also, checked the post and haven't found any non-destructive adaptation of the 1st gen 156GTA brakes.
Nobody has tried to build the adaptor plates? I checked the stuff a couples day ago and I think it can be done.
