improved braking efficiency, which is essential
for either 1950 cc or 2100 cc cars, my MG will
receive the two pot calipers of original MGB GT V8. These
should fit without modifications. Brake discs will be the 273
mm diameter discs (non-ventilated, thickness 12.8 mm), but
drilled to improve cooling and to prevent brake fade under
extreme conditions. The future will tell if I need harder brake

steel brake hoses for better feel to the pedal (and better
looks...) will finish the work on the brake system.

book "How to improve MGB, MGC & MGB V8" will
be very helpfull. It covers engine, suspension (with interesting
independent rear suspension solutions), braking, bodyshell,
interior, electrics and much more.
