Evo 8 Brembos on the GVR4

I just got a set of Evo 8 brembos, and I was wondering if anyone else has done this swap. I am going to do a 5 lug, with the stock rotors and calipers from an evo 8.

If there are other people that are interested, when I go to get the brackes made, I can order extra sets.

So my main question is has anyone done this swap yet? If you have done the swap, did you have any braking issues associated to the 4pot and 2pot calipers.

Stuff Needed Information:
1. Evo 8/9 Brembo Calipers and Rotors
2. Caliper Brackets Front and Rear
3. Wheels that will clear the calipers(I am using 05+ STI BBS Wheels)
4. Wheel Spacers

Stuff I still dont know:
1. Will the rear rotors work with the stock drum brake assembly?
2. Will the stock brake lines bolt up?
3. Is the brake bias affected by the bigger brakes?
4. More questions to come .

Here are some pics of the Calipers.

I have a set of the calipers, but have not progressed any further than a trial holding the parts together. Bracket offset may be trouble IIRC, but I did not have a set of rotors to tell me where they need to go exactly.

I think that would be a great mod for someone ambitious because of the similar weights of the cars. If I were more ambitious about the Galant I would do it. I think you will lose the emergency brake though.

You could work in the rear brake set up from a 2G DSM, as they have the same parking brake as the Evo. That is what I am trying to work out in my car. I know everything in the rear is a direct bolton though.

I would be interested in this as well. I have heard of guys putting them on 1gs. So if it can fit on a 1g, it can fit on our car as well.

I am going to be building the brackets.

I am just waiting for my STI BBS wheels to show up. Then I just need the 5 lug hubs and I am good. I will do a full write up on this, because I know that people are interested.

The fun ones will be the rear brakes because I dont know if the rear drum is the same as the rear drum on the evo. I will find out soon.

Let me know if there are any special pics that you guys want as I go through the whole process. It will take me a month or so to complete because I am putting my motor back together also.

Adam from Devo tuning did this to his car. I told him I wanted hinm to work on my car and he simply laughed at me. Apaprently the brackets are welded to the rear sub-frame. He didn't mention any weird bias issues he had to work out but he said it was a pain in the ass. The car seemed to brake fine while I had it for a week or so.

There are a few EVOs in our Friday night gathering and they do nothing but gripe about the weight of their brakes. They look impressive and stop very nicely, but they are heavy with a capital HEAVY.

Really? Guess they have nothing else to complain about. They are aluminum and IIRC are much lighter than our front iron calipers. Maybe they mean the giant front brake rotors.

I really dont see how a few extra pounds on the calipers will make any differance. It seems that our cars have enough problems as it is . But yes the calipers are heavy, I was like god damn. I will put them on a scale tonight and get some info.

Guess yo don't know much about unsprung weight. Do some research and you'll see how a few extra pounds will make a difference. My break kit reduced unsprung weight over the front end alone by over 50lbs.

The heavier rotors have more of an impact than the calipers.

aren't the calipers stationary so unsprung weight isn't a factor with them?
just asking

anything over and outside of the shock/coil assy, would be considered unsprund weight..essentially the whole hub/brake/wheel would contribute to unsprung weight....basically.

Has this been done yet with success? I would love to have EVO brakes and wheels on the Galant but would like to buy spacers and have it walked-through.

On 2g's the rears are bolt on, the front ones you just have to switch to a 00' JDM galant sterink knucke, and its a bolt on affair.
I have not seen anything on 1g's yet..
Definatly looking forward to seeing this wright up!

Here is the 2g Wright up!

FCR. Ever thought of having somenoe make more replicas of the front brackets you have?
Also, How are the rears done?
