    you running 3" back? Does it drone?

    I was amazed how quiet my duplex is, losing the standard rear box and replacing it with two 2" pipes and no silencing I thought it might be loud - but it's not, I genuinely cannot tell the difference from the drivers seat - which is a good thing but also a bit of a shame, the noise is nice but on a run it soon gets tiresome.

    2.5" Currently.

    Plan is to go 3" then duplex to 2.5" unsure on silencing at the mo, I've got some large rear tailpipes with built in silencers from a V10 Q7 upgrade but might look a little silly!
    Need a MIG / TIG welder from Santa and something motivational to practice on.

I've just bought the OEM ATE front axle 313mm calipers and carriers for £28 (90 day warranty - haggled), new Mintex disks £40, new Borg & Beck pads £5. It represents a 12% braking force upgrade. Chuffed . A little work to refurb, paint & fit but it's a sensible cost effective upgrade and stays true to a T4.

    Have been doing some digging and 4motion golfs run 313 size discs so my question is,would this be a solution or would the carriers be totally different?

    Carriers will be different. I've found nothing of the same era build or later that matches the carrier. Even the part numbers being identical albeit for the vehicle model identifier are different. Even some of the stuff online x-referencing is bollocks. I've ordered 13 sets of VAG fronts and not a single carrier "fits". I think Regs' Merc brembo units might be a v cost effective way to go. I've picked up a few sets of 313mm but they're SO heavy. Got a few ideas using Tiguan fronts 312mm (halves the weight) but need to mock something up 1st. Waiting for a stub axle to arrive.
