Smile Brake caliper / rotor upgrades

Hi guys,

Currently I'm running stock brake calipers and rotors on my 1993 Astina BA 1.8

My brakes are fine but not really great and was thinking about upgrading.

I'm looking for some info about what would fit without too much fabrication.

I live in Bangkok, so I can find parts from Mazda 323, Astina 2.0, MX-5, RX-7, RX-8 and newer Mazdas..

Is there anything from my list that would easily fit and have better braking ?

Thanks in advance

BA V6 brakes are a bolt on swap, the rear even use the same calipers. You will need to change to 5 stud wheels but it's a very common stud pattern.

Thanks for the info. How about RX7 FC brakes or MX-5 NB brakes ?

I have a set of these (mine are 4 studs) and it's super hard to find these in Bangkok, so I would really hate to change the rims
