I'd just go with the expo hubs/knuckles, GVR4 276mm rotors and twin piston calipers from a na stealth/3000gt, 93/94 awd dsm or 91/92 GVR4 or 96 and under Diamante. If an engine swap is in the future you'll definitely need better brakes anyway.

Are all those brakes the same or will they all just bolt up?

It's always a good idea to match the booster and the valve with the brakes you run. I cant give exact info on the differences in feel and performance as I have the turbo model car which already had rear disc and probably a larger booster. So I never touched those items and the cars feel great braking wise. I cant speak for the non-turbo cars, they may have a smaller booster and a different prop valve. I'm sure someone else will be able to chime in on that.

I replaced my stock brake Master cylinder with one from a Dodge Stealth (a full 1"), but left the booster and have fantastic brakes.

So, I got some seat covers last night. $20 for some plan Dickies brand.
The fitment is a little loose but it looks tons better than the ones that were on it.

Whatcha think?

I'm getting the tops of my door panels re-upholstered. Thats why they are off the car.
I'm gonna get some actuators and install them while I have the door panels off so I will have keyless entry in the future. :wink:

Looks great, I went with 4g hubs. The brakes are smaller than the expo or gvr4 but you can simply press out 4g hub and put in expo hub and put all brake mods onto the 4g spindle w/ expo hubs. Gvr4 calis, dsm calis, or expo calis I just run stock 4g spindle
