    The position of the piston is wrong for a bigger pad, it needs to be central to the whole pad...... you would get uneven pad wear. You could try to find a bigger carrier which comes with larger pads... but the position of the pad to the piston is critical ....G.

      Gorman's correct, but most of us will never get the brakes to the points you mention with a daily driver.

        I bet if people run the dragon or mountain/canyon roads then they could heat them up significantly. I've heard that the fsvt swap is a *****.... what do you need to do exactly in regards to grinding the caliper?
