    Big brakes on Mazda CX 5

    Hello,

    It is possible to install big calipers from Porsche or Audi on Mazda CX 5 2014?

    Regards,
    Andrei.B

    Possible? Anything is possible. Is there a pre-assembled kit? Probably not.

    You would need a custom mounting bracket unless they happen to he the same fitment (unlikely). There are multiple BBKs for the CX5 out there
    CYKA being one. You can get true bbk, front and rear with floating caliper if desired.

    I’d guess that they’re not big enough.

    You'd have a better chance of swapping the CX5 Turbo's bigger front brakes. But instead I'd be looking at performance rotors (slotted and/or drilled, vented) and pads before going nuts transplanting calipers.

    Just paint the calipers red. That*s 50% performance improvement right there!

    The scary part is that I bet this would provide 100% of the desired effect.

    The problem could be from calipers or disk (( The car has 68000 km and every time when I`m using brake, the steering wheel has vibrations
    I said to make an upgrade with some oem parts from other cars (In Europe is very easy to buy SH calipers from Porsche or Audi )

    usually indicate warped rotors

    bigger brakes are rarely needed on modern cars - there are 2 issues involved: heat capacity & brake torque

    if you can lock the wheels and skid the tires then you have plenty of brake torque

    if you race your cx5 you MAY need more heat capacity; rarely this can be an issue lon very long mtn. passes (descent) - for either the first thing to do is to duct in air to the F. rotors; often an owner has not replaced the brake fluid every 2 years (or every race) or has used an inferior product

    anyway, use a dial indicator to measure run out on your rotors
