    Mirage Updates! 3/8 updated.

    well my mirage is equipped with the biggest brakes an OEM mirage has up front. diesel things really. in hopes of moving up to a potential 4g63t next year, its time for me to make some preparations.


    behold the galant vr4 260mm rear disc kit. this is the first bolt-on kit ever provided for the mitsubishi mirage using parts from three different cars and an adapter. granted they are 4x114.3 but that doesnt matter since i have two sets of multi-wheels, and i will be moving to 4x114.3 up front over the summer.

    brand new 3g mirage turbo/1g dsm fwd rear caliper assemblys with pads
    6061 aluminum caliper mounting brackets
    3g mirage sedan hubs with good bearings-bolt on
    1g dsm rear brake lines
    ebrake cable adapters

    it will be on its way shortly, and all i need to buy is galant vr4 rotors hehe. this comes at a perfect time since my drums/shoes are toast.

    That's pretty big; about the size of my front rotors. How much power you looking to put down?

    Are you going to paint any of the pieces before putting them in? :)

    came with drums stock. you keep forgetting the mirage weighs like 500lbs less than an EM1 - and this is for the rear ;)

    did you buy a whole kit put together for the conversion? how much did it cost?

    looks good. always fun to have good stoppers.

    yeah kinda. i had to buy the rotors seperately for 50 apiece.

    what you see in the picture is a complete bolt on, bleed and drive away kit - minus the rotors. this complete kit has been bolted up and used for a little while... i got the first production once since i pre-ordered first.

    up front are 256mm rotors, 260mm in the back shortly... when i move to 4x114.3 up front i'll be running 276mm rotors.

    2 words for you that you never saw my car with (WHEN I WASNT HUNGOVER LIKE A MOTHERFUCKER)... R COMPS. :)

    Oh yeah that, Tein Flex Coilovers (Not sure if i'm gonna use the EDFC or not as its only allowed in SM), more freeflowing exhaust, swaybar brackets & endlinks, and who knows maybe even swaybars by the time the season starts... ;)

    Don't worry... I also put a hitch on the STi, so if you want, I can pull the shitbox around the track for you so you can be as quick as me... :)
