Talking Installed: Ksport BBK, 14" Rotors and 8 Piston Calipers . DIY: VIDEO attached

Hey Guys,

So it another mod done and checked off.. Thanks to Mark at THROWDOWN PERFORMANCE, EBC Brakes | P2R | BC Racing | Techna-Fit | Unorthodox Racing | Megan Racing and his AAA service.

Part: Ksport ProComp 14" Rotor's, and 8 Piston Calipers Big Brake Kit

Difficulty: 5 w/ Install Video
Installation Time: 3 Hours
Rotors: 14 inch
Calipers: 8-Piston's

Haven't pushed the brakes to 100% since, you need to Settle the new brakes which takes 200/300 miles. So for now 25/50% braking is what I'm using since i want them to really settle nicely.

I can definitely feel that there is a Monster in the wheel's because the braking as of now is SOLID and Very Very Responsive hahaha.. I have to give it to Ksport I am blown away with the AAA Quality of the Parts, Rotors and the Calipers. +1 for them.

I am Blown away with the outcome, very pleased with everything.


Here is the install Video

HAHAHA, funny that was the plan, but with my Cv3's since the TPMS location on the rim is in the middle, the 16 kit wouldn't fit hahaha.

Thanks man.

wow 14" is HUGE!

I think you're one of the few people who can realistically pull off the 16" rotors. But man 14 is still huge...

this is why I am a fan of BBK. they look stunning when you are on the freeway. It just looks so damn cool when the rim is spinning and you can see a fat caliper... <3

looking at your video, I think it looks like the rotors need to swap sides. Its not the outer slots that determine the direction of rotation, its the internal vanes, and it looks like your internal vanes would be collecting air instead of expelling it.
