Here are my new Supra 4pot brakes. They finally arrived to Greece. Now I have to get a set of adaptors in order to fit them on the car. I am also thinking to upgrade the brake fluid to 5.1. Do you have any suggestions?

nice mods :D

i think your setup can handle a lot more power thought, think you should make it boost 8-12 psi and see somewhere between 250-300 whp :D

what grill is that? not OEM is it ?
