Just completed the upgrade on my XC70 from stock 282mm rotors to XC90 V8's 336mm rotors. The Calipers, brake fluid lines, and rotor back covers were also swapped out. <br>I picked the V8, because it has larger rotors than the T6 and 2.5T (315mm)<br>Everything is bolt on, with only slight modification to enlarge the 2 holes for the caliper bracket by 2mm.<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/9417/2623290313b2623292553b200602028small29fl0.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>This is done since the XC90 caliper mounting bolts are slightly larger than the stock XC70s.<p>Before:<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/6485/2623290313b2623292553b200432028small29gd9.jpg" BORDER="0"><br> <br>After:<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/6715/2623290313b2623292553b200672028small29wx8.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Before<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/6861/2623290313b2623292553b200462028small29zq4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>After<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/9483/2623290313b2623292553b200642028small29ni8.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Comparison:<br>XC90 V8 left vs XC70 rigth<br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/6240/2623290313b2623292553b200512028small29gb7.jpg" BORDER="0"><br><IMG SRC="http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/345/2623290313b2623292553b200572028small29vk4.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Conclusion:<br>The brake force is now much stronger with a more powerful feel in the brake peddle. And thanks to the larger rotor surface area, repeated stops from high speed does not have brake fade like before.<br>A very good upgrade for around US$600.
