Increasing Stopping Power with Project Mu


I decided to put some new brakes on my car over the weekend. I literally spent months trying to decide what brakes were the best option for me. I finally settled for Project Mu because it gunmetal in color. I bought my Rotora brake kit in bright red because I wanted to attract attention, for my new setup I wanted a more “mature” and OEM look.
Another thing to note, I wanted a brake kit I could easily get replacement parts for. I have measured my PMU bell and disc and looked over the Brembo Racing catalog and it turns out I can replace my PMU rotors with Brembo Racing discs. This is a benefit considering I won’t have to deal with ordering replacement parts from Mackin; I can just point and click my mouse over at HRPWorld. As far as replacement brake pads, Endless makes pads that fit PMU calipers.
The options for brake kits for a 2g DSM are very limited. But luckily the 2g shares so much with the Evo it’s amazing. I ordered some new OEM 2001 Galant VR4 steering knuckles from over in Asia. And the PMU big brake kit essentially bolted right up without problems.
The bells are a tad thicker and tend to push my wheels out a tad so I suggest ordering some extended wheel studs. If you’re wondering the Evo and 2g DSM share the same ARP extended wheel studs part number.
