The Hilux is in desperate need of new pads and rotors so instead of just doing that I've ordered some 150 series Prado calipers for an upgrade in rotor size and brake contact. Looking at what pads and rotors to go for now. Any suggestions?

Ended up going with 120 ser Prado as the brake master wasn't big enough to work the pistons in the 150ser calipers. These work amazingly!!!

Re: Oodah's Hilux Bigger Brakes and HP!!!

Spent the day on the Sunshine Coast, dropped the car off at Just Auto's and rode around the county side till I got the call to come pick her up. What a difference the HKS unit made, not only is there more power but the delivery is so smooth and just nicer to drive. The Guys at Just Auto's made it too easy, helped me load the bike off an on and Matt showed me what they had done and explained it all. Best Customer service I've ever received!!!!! :D :D :D

Great build mate! love the bar. Any dyno sheets?
also, not worried at all about insurances with the prado brakes? any plans for engineering?
I'm desperate to do my brakes, but worried insurance will knock me back if i'm in an accident.

Yeah I'll find the dyno sheet it went flying with the rest of the shit when i booted it lol. With the brakes i very much doubt i would have a problem as there genuine Toyota, the mountings stay the same. You literally use the prado rotors and bolt on the prado calipers, all the same just bigger. And I would be very suprised if they knew what size rotor there meant to have anyway. Its not like there aftermarket willwoods or brembos more like a "factory upgrade." I've contemplated engineering it but I'm also thinking of a SAS.

Here's the dyno print out, heaps more hp but just driving it every day is so much easier the extra talk has made all the difference to turn the 33's

How do you find the difference in braking? I've been thinking about doing that to mine!

Yeah man it's well worth the upgrade imo, I was due for new pads and rotors anyway so i forked out a little more and went the full hog. Pulls up the extra weight and the bigger tyres with ease now and like always just keep those rear drums adjusted.

Sweet as, thanks mate. I'll consider it when i'm due for new brakes. Yeah... I swear i'm under the car once a fortnight with my drums. I swear every time I go through water, I lose all rear brakes and have to adjust again. No idea why. Not that it matters - Hilux handbrakes don't do anything anyway :p

Was given some fairly new Rg Colorado rear leafs. I've ordered shackles. Hopefully have them in on the weekend. Will let you guys know how it goes as soon as I do.
