Brak Upgrade

Hi all, Well, it has been done before, but I have just completed a front brake calliper upgrade from the single piston calliper to the twin piston calliper of a Hyundai Grandeur (XG350). It is quite a common conversion done to the Hyundai Tiburons and these callipers are a direct bolt up replacement. They offer a big improvement in braking performance that is quite noticeable. Just as a matter of interest, the Hyundai seal Kit to refurbish the Grandeur callipers is part number 58102 37A10. There is a bit of a story behind the part number is anyone is interested. Anyway, here are a couple of photos.
