    As title says, looking for a set of front brake disc and unsure of sizes or where to find a pair, any info would be appreciated!! Had my eye on a pair of brembo 230mm xtra drilled .. hard to find any info regarding the laurel, also any info on brake hose size and length to freshen it all up..

    Brembo part number: 08.7165.1X

    cheers

    C35 should be S13 NA front disks and single piston calipers.

    I would recommend changing to R33 GTST fronts at least however, should cost you about £250-350 for secondhand fronts from JDMGarage or Garage D!

    Makes more sense than spending a couple hundred the crap brakes. Its easy swap also.

    Going off topic.. my laurel is set at 7/8psi boost.. if I fit a manual boost controller would I be able to turn it up just a little?? Possibly a stupid question but we all have to learn somewhere!

    cheers

    Max on the stock turbo is 0.9 bar, if you are going for power get a stock turbo re-wheeled by Midland turbos and a head gasket and crack on.

    Id recommend converting the coilpacks to VAG sooner rather that later.

    Cheers!

    Cheers for the info, I was thinking of getting a set of spitfires maybe or would you recommend a Audi R8 conversion + harness ( same kind money) I’ve been doing abit of searching and I think the engine is a de + T is there any definitive way to check? Also as you can see there is pipes blocked off on the intake manifold and a 2 missing pipes on the the bottom right corner any info on this?? .. I have noticed there is no blow off valve either so turbo chatters . Previous owner claimed it’s about 315bhp but not sure until it gets on the dyno. 1CB90D45-734E-4B7F-8253-E93239BF83DD.

    I wouldn't recommend the Splitfires, the VAG conversions are much cheaper if you ever need spares down the line. If they blues were much cheaper i would say go for it but for similar money just get VAG.

    It does look a little weird, like the intercooler piping doesn't come over as far as it should? But it could just be that kit i guess.

    i dont know enough about an RB25DE to tell you.
