What modifications need be done, if any, to fit TT rotors/calipers on a NA vehicle axle?
You have to CUT the shield where the brake calipers gos but you can bend the other portion back. But i found it easier to just cut the rest of the dust shield with some garden sheers as opposed to bending it.There is a huge difference in feel. Get the ss lines your going to in that area anyway. It is not mandatory to have the dust shields cut, you can bend them out of the way. This is how I have my setup and its definitly worth it.
With the stock calipers and the stock master cylinder if i pressed the brake pedal the brakes would engage fully VERY fast.I don't know what you mean by having the pedal almost all the way to the floor, but mine felt the same after i swap the fronts to TT, maybe you need to bleed more? Anyway the major difference is at high speed.
You can reuse the brake lines, the na torque plate now tt caliper bolts, the banjo bolt and the copper washers around each bolt.So I know this might b a little off topic but I'm actually right in the beginning of this upgrade, and was wondering for the guys that have done this upgrade already what parts can u reuse from the na brakes, example; the bolt that comes from the caliper to the brake lines, any of the shims and springs for mounting the calipers? Any stuff like that
define better?I'm looking to upgrade my brakes soon. But I was told the brakes from the LS400 would be better then the TT brakes.
