    Know any machinists? Best way to go about doing something like this. Basically you're just grinding away material from the center of the mounting surface, as the bore of the rotor and the bore of the hub need to match. Same idea with wheels, if your center bore is bigger on your hub than on your wheel, you're going to have headaches getting that wheel to fit...

    On the original subject, awesome info man! Might not be as light as some of the aftermarket applications, but still... can't beat the price, would just need to get a proportioning valve to get the balance right, correct?
    thanx for explaining this! i thought this was what it meant, but wasnt sure... thought this mod was plug and play!.... guess not.. but even then, with a little machining work, its not that hard after all....

    I am sure that they will be better, but I am curious as to how much more powerful they will be than the stock supra calipers because the evo 8 rears are also single piston correct? I am not doubting simply wondering how much more powerful.

    Could always buy an aftermarket 4 piston caliper designed to fit the EVO and use that

    unfortunately havent been home long enough to fit them up properly so cant write an step by step process yet.

    so far all ive done was get the bore machine dout 2mm on the rotors (i went with late model 5x114.3 pcd 316x20mm brembo cross drilled to match my cross drilled brembo fronts).

    the earlier 5x100 pcd rotor may be a better option... i dont know

    only remote issue is the dust shield. not sure how much will need to be hacked off it to make fit. an alternative option is perhaps just machining 3mm of the back of the handbrake drum on the rotor...

    all in all about as easy as an upgrade as possible..; prob not worth your while unless you got upgraded front brakes to match..

    all up i paid 250 for calipers and 450 for rotors, rest of work gettign them to fit is basically free... (may cost you someon eelse 50 in machining)
