    Default What size brakes??

    Right then just after some advice, I'll be fitting an Astra VXR 2.0 Turbo engine into my car next year but obviously my car needs beefing up to cope with all the power etc. It should be running about 300bhp once its in and up and running.

    Now obviously my 285mm brakes are not upto the task. What sort of size brakes would people recommend?? I don't think the Vectra VXR brakes would be up to the task either but open to options

    Std vxr is 280ps so its not far off. Although spoons went for something slightly larger i believe!

    here is no point in fitting something and then re doing it later on. get it right first time
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Exactly I'm just making sure I do it right first time it needs to cope with 300bhp with the possibility of more later on.
