    re: Big Brakes??

    280bhp NA has been done before but im planning a turbo or supercharger. plus ecu. not sure if it will go ahead yet cause im having trouble finding a decent engine, so it mite jst come down to doing as much as possible to my engine. Only put what engine i had already so ppl wld know what size brakes it had as standard.
