I was going quite fast over the weekend (on a race track honest) and coming down from just over 130 clock speed to 55 it felt a bit squirmy, have I already got the biggest discs on a 1997 V6 Cally? Is it the grooved and drilled route for improvement, or does the turbo offer more stopping power to start with?

The callipers are effectively the same but the pads are a lot bigger in the V6 compared to the turbo so your better off sticking with the V6 ones.

ops :rolleyes:

After the smell that they were giving off when I pulled up I thought they might not have been up to the job, but then again they haven't warped so.........

Are the discs the same size?

So I was completely wrong then. :)

I guess Black Diamond (?) and some EBC pads are the best for action no?

As mentioend the Calibra Turbo and V6 caliper are the same, they have the same P/N. However I don't know about the caliper carriage backet.

For a cheaper upgrade to 308mm, use a Vectra 2.6L GSi caliper brackets and 5-stud 308mm discs. Everything else keep the same, it all bolts on and you have 308mm brakes now.
