best cheap mod I've done in a while

So I finished up my 60k service on the Viggen yesterday by changing out the brake fluid with Super Blue.

OMG what a difference. Maybe the fluid that was in there was worse than I thought ( it was a littel brown ) but I havent felt an improvement like this since I swapped from 9 inch to 11 inch discs with dual piston calipers on my old VW GTI.

Probably preaching to the choir here but, I highly recomend Super Blue racing fluid to anyone servicing their brakes. Combine it with SS lines and EBC pads and you'll have one hellova brake set up.

Anyway, just my .02

Super Blue can be had from Eeuroparts for about $13 a bottle. It can not be mixed with DOT3 and DOT4 fluids so a full flush and fill has to be done to use it.

Im confused, one can? Is that a 1liter can. If I have to order the stuff Id like to pay shipping only once. Also, what break pads are you using, are they the EBC greenstuff pads? Im thinking about replacing mine for the 60k service.

i switched to this stuff...its pretty sick. I didnt get as big a difference tho since my brake lines are slowly disintegrating lol. 1 can did the trick for me. its dot 5 fluid so i think th eboiling point is something like 100 degrees higher than the stock shit
