I have a '93 164 Cloverleaf 24v
and, as with my last 164, i find the braking no where near up to the rest of the car!
Does anybody know if a set of Brembo 4 pots from either a 166 or a GTA (147/156) will fit the 164 struts? I am pretty sure that the disc's are the same.
The car is running 18" wheels
so i can't see any problems with clearance etc. Any ideas?
I know i could make a plate for the fixings, just wondering if someones has any knowledge about lug holes etc.
Thanks all and MERRY XMAS
Here is what I would do before spending a fortune on a brake kit. The 24V's came with a much better brake system than the older cars.
I would either skim the rotors and use a good pad to break them in. Stainless steel is a great option and works well. Use ATE GOLD/Super blue, they are the same. That should take care of some of the heat issues.
Make sure the caliper piston is moving in and out smoothly, lubricate it with brake fluid. Seals are good and not torn.
Lubricate the caliper pins.
Pads, use a ceramic pad if you can find one. The smoother/finer the material on the pad surface the better the pad.
I see no need to upgrade to a larger caliper. I think these cars stop very well, it is all a matter of maintenance and high quality components.
I run the complete 24V booster/MC, calipers, rotors, carriers and all on my 12V QV and the braking has never been better. All new parts.
Bleed system properly, break in pads and rotors slowly for about 200miles before getting on it and I am sure your braking will be much much better.
