Err better brakes on a corrado without ABS

Post by ctwg60 on Thu Dec 11, 2008 8:34 am

I'm after better pedal behavior and braking without the use of an ABS system or the big engine vacuum bellows. More of a competition brake system. Is there a pump that can be fitted to a vw 4 pot engine that can provide better braking assistance? The other reason I want to get rid of the bellows system is free up room at the rear of the engine for future engine changes although I know it's not absolutely necessary for what I may want to do in the future. Any links or other info greatly appreciated. Smile

Not sure what set up you currently have but im on the Brembo seat ibiza set up with ferodo ds2500 pads and no abs, works an absolute treat.

Yes I know you can fit bigger discs and calipers but I'm not really going that road I have S2 calipers and standard discs with 15" wheels.

That would be a sticking point the wheel size lol.

My point was i dont have abs basically, seemingly everybody else who has the brembos has abs too.

Wilwood lites possibly for small 4 pots and discs that will fit 15's.

you can fit a vr 24mm but you have to fit the vacuum assist and weld up the abs hole. So it sorts part of the problem with the pedal travel and feel but I'm after a modern brake feel with a pump to assist if you get what I mean.

VR6 MCs are 23mm, MK4s use a 24mm.

What about a dual MC setup if you're after a competition style setup? With a manual rear bias valve too? Been considering that myself.

OK this is what I mean have you any links or further info on how this setup would work or could be integrated with the existing pedal box?

I think the vr is 23.8mm. G60 is 22.2mm.

EDIT Ahh Haa

Haven't looked into it yet, sorry, but looks like you've made a good start!
