Gday Guys i tried serching this in old threads but couldnt find what i was after. I want to do a brake conversion on my AUS spec Vr4, i understand i will need bigger wheels and might have to go with the 5 lug set up, but i just need to know whats needed to do the 3000gt (mitsubishi) calipers on my Vr4, i would like to do the front and rear conversion. Any help or pics would be VERY appriciated.

Thanks Wade
 

Wade, I've put together a kit for the front conversion. There's no provision for the rear parking brakes so no one ever bothered with using the 3kgt rear calipers. Just leave the stock calipers there.

You can redrill the 5 lug rotors for 4 lugs. No they won't fit the factory wheel. They will clear the Evo 8/9 17" & Evo X factory 18" wheels. These are the cheapest wheels you're going to find of this caliber.
