My Air flow meter has apparently gone now. Im only revving to about 5000rpm before it just acts like theres a limiter there. I managed to find out whilst overtaking, boy did i get a shock when i found out my usual amount of aceleration wasnt there.
I caught sight today of a 147 GTA and boy was it a beauty. The 147 had absolutely massive brake calipers in red, anybody know if A. they will fit on a 156 and B. approx cost for the calipers and where i can get them.
If ur 156 V6 has the same suspension uprights as a GTA then the calipers should hopefully bolt straight on.
If they are different then the 147GTA calipers and discs will fit, but u will need to get new suspension uprights and spacer brackets made to space the caliper properly.An engineering workshop with cnc machines,and a tap and dye set can make these brackets for u.
I have a set of GTA Brembo 4 pot calipers and custom Brembo Racing 325 x 26mm floating discs and bells installed/fabricated onto my 147 turbo.These are also grooved and ventilated for maximum performance.
The standard 147GTA discs are only 305mm I think.
Stopping power is amazing compared to standard discs and calipers.
The GTA discs and calipers will fit a 156 but u will need custom fitting kit(bracket and spacer plate) made to get them to fit.Best of luck with it.
P.S -- A new GTA caliper is 305 euro here in Ireland so about 610 euro for the front calipers and 2 standard non grooved GTA discs at 100 euro each.
Total of about 810 euro(roughly £600 sterling) for the parts then the cost of the brackets to be made up and fitting.Probably alot cheaper for these GTA parts in the UK though.
