    depends on budget, if you have a smaller budget go for upgraded pads, brakelines, brake ducts maybe add a set of the courtney grooved discs.

    if you have a larger budget go for a big brake kit or the vectra setup

      the front's are a must if your going stage 2. 27oish bhp as they are 60/70 %of the braking. have a look at the top tunner's mate.

                if you have the money go for the big brake kits, i have heard good things on the vectra set up its cheaper also its easier to get hold of replacement parts as its all oem stuff, these arent really necessary if all your going to do is a remap it depends how far you want to go with it

                    I'd add to this but I think i'd need a degree in 'Modern language'

                    Seriously though. If your a a tight budget, I can recommend the way i've gone. I have braided brake lines with Tarox discs and pads, then AP racing fluid.

                    They are very good for the money

                        well the remap is jus to get me startd to get rid of the flat spots and get sum more torque to help pull thro the gears and if a like it may get stage 3 after so may aswell do all the brakezs them cos am hoping to get a lsd if things go rite for me with a few homers a put in for
