    Default Re-Map = More Power = Brake Fade???

    If i was to re-map my 2.2 DTi, would it be adviseable to get the 314mm brake conversion??

    My brakes fade now after a few hard roundabouts, so i assume they will be worse with more power.

    Just trying to price up how much it would cost.

    Not sure if you'd need the 314mm kit with the power you'd have - but then again you can never have too much stopping power can you! lol

    If you're interested, I've got a set of 302mm calipers, discs and pads that I'm thinking of selling on as I've fitted the 314mm kit now.

    I'll have to have a think m8 - the discs and pads were only changed a very short time before I upgraded to the 314mm kit, and the pads are the OEM type i.e. the much better ones compared to the after-market ones that come in the disc/pad kit.

    it's common sense to up the brakes after upping the power..more power needs more stopping..
