Hey, I was planing to do a brake upgrade on my FTO GR and was lookimg to get evo 1,2,3 twin pot brakes and bolt them on and done, but after finding 1st gen GTO 4pot calipers, I couldn't say no to them. I did a fair bit of research on how to do it and what I need to change but I couldn't find any information at all about the bracket adapters no matter where searched. Can anyone help me with where can I find those (other than freaky parts in the UK bcz they will cost me a fortune) or maybe a template I can follow to get them custom made?
Thanks in advance.

No idea, 99.99% of the members here wouldn't push enough power to be even considering/experimenting with GTO stuff. Probably better off looking at FTO forums for this.

Ultimately I'd say the bolt spacing on the caliper bracket/hub is your first problem.

You're absolutely right about not pushing enough power but I got them for a very good deal that is why I picked them up. On the FTO forums they mainly have the Evo 1,2,3 brakes upgrade as it is more than enough for FTO. If it is going to be a headache I'll probably sell them and just stick to the Evo upgrade.
Thanks

Hello all,
Iv read through all the post, great info! question: can you use FTO Brake pads in Magna calipers? (both being the twin pot version) I can get top level performance pads for the FTO no problem, yet there is sweet FA in choices for the Magna... Manys thank in advance:sunglasses:

As long as they are both the twin piston variety yes. ABS was an option for both single and twin piston i believe, but it doesn't matter for the brake pad. I believe the part number was the same for the single or twin piston calipers anyway

Thank you very indeed! Thats going to make it sooo much easier to get some decent pads for this track car of mine, especially since the drums will stay for a little while, not many Protons/fto's in Tassie..
