    Default "BIG" New Disc's What do I Need Next??

    I own a 1.8 Exclusive fitted with standard size discs etc. and have just managed to obtain a cheap set of 314mm discs and pads. Trouble is that is all I have at the minute.

    What else do I need to be able to do the "big brake conversion" I know that I will need calipers and carriers, but is there anything else...........and does anyone have any of the bits kicking around in their sheds or point me in the right direction to finding the required parts, but preferably on a budget

    Thanks all

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi 150 Hatch

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2008

    Mileage : 69'000

    So the hoses do not need to be changed when fitting 314's? I'll be doing this conversion soon and will be reusing my hoses if they fit the calipers with no problems..
