So not a lot has happened over the last couple of months. I finally got my v6 astina hubs so I could finish off my Front Big Brake Upgrade. Got my hubs on the 22/11/12, removed the hub axels and bearings, pressed fitted new wheel bearings into each hub, press fitted one hub axel into one of the v6 hubs. Now here is where I can stuck. My spare I4 hub had a drive shaft stuck in it. So after a couple of days of trying to remove the drive shaft to use the hub axel, I ended up snapping one of the caliper bolt holes on the hub. How I did this u might ask... well I my have got a little pissed off and used a mates 3T bench press. And yer the hub axel did move... so in the bin it went (with the drive shaft still attached to it). So after some thinking I remembered the passenger’s side hub on the car was my spare hub, after the first attempt of fitting mx5 brakes to my original hubs I may have drilled out my calipers bolt hole threads on my hub’s before double checking the measurements. I still had my original hub on the driver’s side. WIN so off it came. Removed the hub axel, and installed it on my driver side V6 hub. Yay all sorted. So bolted the new Hubs in with new ball joints, and then installed the calipers and new braided brake lines. i also used 2005 mazda mx5 turbo disc's which where 4 stud and the same as my 4 stud dics but 270mm in size. I went with a DBA 4000 series T3 dics and a QFM HPX brake pad. My new eunos 800m calipers are also a two spot caliper too which work really well, also had them rebuilt and painted Mate red.

Looks the BOMB now



this is them sitting behind my rims looks good i think..






and just a random photo there too
read all of this and it will tell you

edit sorry i left out what calipers i was using oops

Any reason of the choice to go 800m calipers over liberty ones?

As far as i know there two spot and the liberty one are only one spot. also the 800m calipers have a much bigger pad area too. with this combo i use ALL of my dics space. not one mm is not used. i wont even get the usual 1-2mm lip that most people get on there dics as they where down..

plus a mate had done it to his bg before and highy recomended it

Cool now I know. But I wasn't very keen on going the RS calipers. Want to keep everything mazda. Also I have a funny feeling that the eunos calipers have a larger pad area then the RS turbo... Ill see if I can find the info

Eunos 800 pads FTW
I am going to be doing a similar thing with my car next year, I wont be going down the Mazda 6 brake route as I have found something that fits easier and requires no modification to the hand brake cables and has a larger pad area than the 6 brakes do.

Ive been made aware that cx7 rotors/calipers fit the gg/gy 6, and they are bigger again. Will do some more research into it...

yes and no.
havng 2 pistons push the smaller pad might actually give a larger pad to disc surface area than the 800M option.

either way matt has increased his braking force by a far bit. 5% larger rotor and then a big piston and pad to boot. good options either way you go.

Itís been a while since I have updated this. So here goes

I have my Cusco adjustable tops ready to go into tomorrow,

I got my 4agze drift shafts reco'd and ready for installation,

I bought replacement rally gt4 spec bearings for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th for the Toyota box,

Found a Mazda astina wiring manual cheap as chips so I can finish off my engine loom,

Bought all my 3 inch mandrel bends for my exhaust, all my flanges, my 200cpsi cat, my x force rear muffler and my middle muffler,

Going to paint some parts for the engine bay tomorrow,

Also finish modding my vf10 to fit onto my gtx housing. Just need to get some new gaskets for it.

picking up my Profec B spec 2 EBC tomorrow aswell. that should keep everything nice (boost whise) while i run the BP26 ecu.

I also tested out the front breaks the other night at Mt Nebo, man ow man they work a treat. I donít think I need a brake bias adjuster as they work perfectly


Also still looking for steal wheel nuts, so if anyone knows where to get some please let me know

Did you say 800m calipers sit down on v6 hubs/ no mods?

Did you say mazda astina wiring manual...!!!
I would say "i have a firstborn, she'd be good for digging coal and stuff" but that would be in poor taste... but a real wiring manual!

So under the advice of a member on the forum, i have sent my bp26 head off to be cleaned and stripped down, pressure tested, and port matched. then im taking my series 3 NA head in and they are going to take everything out of it, relap the valves, new shims, check the cams, etc.

so at the end of the day i will have a bg26 head that pressure tested running NA series 3 cams and valves all for much less than $1000.

Ordered my bpt gasket kit to. now just to decide to go with the standard head gasket or something else.

Have to order new piston rings, main bearings, and big end bearings. to rebuild the bottom end. and thats it.... i think lol

so overall ill have a very nice flowing head for my VF10 turbo and a stock bottom end, which should see me get around +200hp. which is all im chasing out of the BPT anyway

EDIT: still have decided on what pistons ill be running yet.. the bpt ones (8.2:1) or my na ones (9.0:1). As they pistons are made from the same quality steel. and the rods are the same too. hmmmmm ideas guys???
