I think i will go with this solution :

sadziak Wrote:hi have done the conversion.
i recommend it a lot.

you need:
- Mazda FD3S 4 pot calipers - should track them on UK Ebay for about 90-120GBP) - depends on condition,
- good brake pads, mintex High Performance, Ferodo DS, Tarox, hawk HPS - you name it..
- good steel braided brake lines - i have HEL, you can buy also Goodridge,
- good high temp = high performance braking fluid (RBF 660),
- caliper mounting adaptors - you can buy them on ebay from USA (about 150usd+shipment+taxes...they come in aero-grade billet aluminum, very strong and very light with bolts 10.9 grade to mount them - should work plug and play) or you can dig the 4age forum for a CNC Machine Drawing file and try to make them in a local CNC Shop, but i assume they will not be much cheaper to do a single pair.

- new Mini Cooper S Rotors (272mm) - need to be redrilled at a workshop to fit, i recommend the ATE POWERDISCS (sloted) - good price for the performance, but you can also go for Tarox Sport Japan or DBS from Austraila if you have the money...$$
- bigger = more efficient braking Servo!! try important, you will not have enough braking power for the 4 pot calipers if you don't have a bigger braking servo!! a servo from a NISSAN 200SX s13 will do the job!

thats it, thats All.

Thumbs up! Hurray!

I have Corolla E12 TS rear calipers at the back, almost plug and play, and Primera P11 discs (257*11, 4*114.3). These calipers does not have handbrake pulleys, so its only good for hydraulic e-brake.

And I dont have good experience with the ATE power disc, I think mine are warped after two trackdays on the Hungaroring. On our everyday/my girlfriends car (Ford Focus) we have Brembo Maxx discs, and I think I'll change the ATEs to those too.

And also if you'll go with the RX7 brakes at the front and Golf4 / Corolla E12 at the rear, I would recommend some bigger brake master cylinder aswell. Like RX7 or EVO8 or Supra MK3...
