    I just recently installed the 4 piston kit on a customers JZA70, and I also gotta say that these things are amazing!! With ABS they stop sooo quick. I will be doing some road tuning on the car tonight and setting up the boost controller, so will be "testing" these things out a little harder tonight.

    Install was a breeze, and the instructions are pretty good. I think you should add that you need a 10mm AND a 3/8" allen wrench, i had to look around a but to find one. Maybe add a better pic of the brake line routing.

    As an aside, I bought a allen socket to aid in properly torquing the bolts, might want add that to the instruction.

    I have recently re-designed the brake line, you are correct I need to get a photo of that. I will post here when I do.

    Yea I have always had every allen wrench known SAE and Metric, so I never considered it a special tool.

    I would say the 3 "kinda" special tools you might not have would be:
    3/8" Allen wrench, on a socket would help
    10mm Allen wrench, same goes for the socket.
    1/4' hex wrench for eh bleeder.

    here are some of the pictures i took of my install, i should have gotten a real camera instead of shooting photo's with my iphone, but the redesigned brake lines are pretty slick i like them a lot! where they are protected. Andy i will definitely re-shoot some of these pictures in the next couple days as my car will go down for fuel system upgrade but for now here are some pictures, and man i love these 6 pot brakes!!!!! and i actually had a another mk3 with stock brakes to compare when i was done with the brake swap, my friend and i noticed a big difference between the two and it is incredible













    Andy i will have some pictures sent over to you with the newer re-designed brake lines! thanks again A + for fast shipping and A+ for a great product

    im having a lil issue installing my 13" front brake kit. seems like the 18" wheel might be my problem. the adr m-sports dont seem to allow the clearance needed to install these brakes. the inner edge of my spokes rub against the wilwood calipers. has anyone else installed these wheels on their 13" bbk from andy? anyone have any suggestions? thanks

    Sounds like you might need a spacer.
