Volkswagen Mk2/Mk3 big brake kit front with lightweight 2 piece rotor.


We are the only place that offers 1.625″ diameter pistons. All of our competitors supply 1.25″ pistons.
This translates into more clamping pressure, and balanced front to rear bias. Nobody else offers this level of performance for A2-A3 chassis cars, period!

Light weight and more powerful than any other 4 piston caliper kit on the market, for VW Mk2-Mk3-Corrado, and Passat B3 B4 applications, this kit has been rigorously tested for thousands of miles, before offering it for sale. We are proud to offer our brake kits that have been developped with the best components available, and at the lowest price on the market .

The option of our lightweight 2 piece rotors is now as a drop down menu option integrated with our check out options; savings of 2Kg per rotor, and superior heat dissipation through the alloy hat. Combined shipping comes out free for the rotors, when buying them with the BBK

Clamping force of Tech-53’s kit vs other alternatives:
Stock Caliper: Tech-53 = + 14% ( floating type )
Competitors 4 piston kits : Tech-53 = +22%
Porsche 996 caliper and adapters: Tech-53 = + 40%

Huge weight reduction (unsprung weight) Vs cast iron calipers. For the 11″ applications, Girling 60’s weigh in at about 13lbs.
Tech-53 big brake kit calipers weigh in at 3.9lbs: This is a difference of close to 70% on crtitical unsprung weight.Only Tech-53’s kit has rear bias reduced for optimal performance in both braking and handling.

Comes standard with Hawk HPS compound pads for street / limited track
Optionnal Hawk DTC60 compound for ultimate track use


The forged billet bodied caliper delivers high-strength clamping force and positive stopping power. Four stainless steel pistons provide fully balanced pad loading, along with the corrosion resistance and thermal retardant qualities of the stainless alloy that will keep your calipers cooler and running trouble free. Calipers work perfectly with 22mm or upgradable 23.81mm OE master cylinders. (Audi Masters are a straight bolt on for a firm pedal feel for racing applications)

This kit fits A2-A3-Corrado G60 and Passat B3 spindle interface, and are a straight bolt on application, excluding VR6 spindles. (not intended for VR6 spindle applications)

Brake backing plate trimming might be required. The 280mm rotors will need 15″ diameter wheels, and might need spacers, depending on wheel type.
