    Hi guys, I have a 92 VP Calais (ABS) with an LS1 and T56 installed and I want to install a brake upgrade. I am lead to believe that the kits containing VE calipers rather than VT/X are better as you shouldn’t need to upgrade the booster/master cylinder as you would with the VT/X.

    Could anyone point me to which company sells the best kit, I don’t want any cheapo components as obviously the brakes need to work and be as safe as possible.

    I bought my modified VT brake booster from Race Brakes in Sydney, they were really good to deal with and seemed to know their stuff.  Would be worth giving them a call.

    Brake kits containing VE calipers and rotors also require a bracket to adapt them to the stub axle unlike the VT to VZ models. The VE option also has less clearance and may require a larger than 15″ rim as there are more options. Conversion hubs are also required for any larger brake upgrades on the VB to VP models.
