    Converting the brakes to VXR spec would cost you quite a bit mate. I would recommend converting to 314mm discs. You can buy the whole upgrade (calipers, discs, pads etc..) from LMF if you're interested. Or keep a lookout on Ebay. They make one hell of a difference by the way

    I belive GSI 3.2 might have fitted some to his motor. But did need to do some machining to get them to fit. I don,t know if he has posted a thread about it though. might be worth doing a search for it though.

    The discs are 302's on the GSI's so i believe so yes it's pretty much a straight swap mate.

    Yes, yes and yes.

    They were 302mm on the early GSis and then 314mm subsequently. The 314mm kit is also a straight swap - calipers, carriers and discs/pads.
