Brake conversion for 145

hey gents

has anyone done a brake conversion on their 145, or does anyone know of a 145 with a big brake conversion?

I want to change my stock disks and calipers for the new GTV ones, just on the front, is this possible? My car is increasingly being used as a show car, and I also like to race her to show a couple of arogant german car drivers how it is done in style, hence i want to upgrade my brakes.

Will my standard 145 15" rims fit? (i sometimes like to use them for auto-x's and track days) If not, will my 17" momo racers fit, i'm sure they will, cause the GTV's here came with 16" wheels? Cause if they don't then i can't go for it.

Reason i'm asking so many questions is cause Alfa parts cost a fortune here, so i don't want to order the GTV calipers etc, just to find they don't fit when they get here.

My eventual plan for my 145 is to make her almost a 145 GTA, keeping as much Alfa as possible, effectively i want her to look, go, and stop like a performance 145 that was never realised.

Wave Re: Brake conversion for 145

I had done a brake upgrade and stick to the original sizes.
I changed the standard discs with Tarox G88 Discs and Tarox sport brake pads. I am quite happy with the upgrade, since it bites better and earlier, especially in wet conditions

I suggest to check the They have plenty of brake conversion kits from 6 to 10 pots with various sizes. You can also see many sample cars.
