TRD brake upgrade

anyone done the TRD brake upgrade? i think those red calipers would looks tits on my red GTS but i'm wondering whether they give you any significant performance improvement over the stock brakes.

disabling me will result in loss of primary power.

rofl rofl rofl rofl

ok back to the question, I haven't done it, but that upgrade will give you a HUGE improvement of stock because your going to a bigger rotor plus replacing the caliper with a multi-piston type instead of the stock single piston calipers.

I think $1900.00 from WCToyota, plus installation. I'd recommend getting it installed by your dealer, but if you know someone who could install them, go for it. thumbsup

It's not that hard. The hardest part would be to flush the brake fluid.

AEM makes big rotors, not calipers.

Stoptech makes the TRD big brake kit.
