2006 V8 Brake Caliper Upgrade

Post by Chonk » Tue May 14, 2019 9:29 pm

Hello. I was reading over this post here, https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthrea ... 302?page=3 , and I had a question. I’m just about to upgrade my calipers from the 316mm rotor size to the 336mm rotor size. My biggest concern is going to be the pressure line that holds the brake fluid. My thought is that I would swap the line from the old one to the new one as fast as I can that way no air gets into the Master Cylinder. How do I best go about doing this swap?

You are going to need to bleed the brake calipers regardless.
