    brakes

    can anyone tell me if there is any differance between the caliper on the coupe turbo and the 2.2. the reason i ask is if i wanted turbo discs up front could i just change the discs or would i have to change the calipers as well. sorry if its a stupid question but thought id ask anyway

    Calipers are the same (same part no.) but the carrier is different and of course the rotors.
