hi i did some research and i not find all of answer im asking about that and just to make sure i have some question about it
1.does it comes from grand-am brakes ??????
2.does the offset of the wheel will change with this brake ????
3.does anyone do this brake upgrade for less ( because im canadian the cost of shipping will be expensive and will need to pay the core charge and ship my old brake will be more expensive then the core charge )
4.does the big bore master cylinder will help with this kit
5.can i just do front conversion with keeping the rear stock or the rear will wear faster or less or i will not have same braking balancing (dont want to do rear because want keeping my parking brake and dont want to modify it )
6.and on the fiero store they said about the caliper that you need the bleeder pointing upward so the right calipers will be on the driver side and left will be on pass side so does it will have the banjo hole ( for the rubber brake line ) in the same place like stock ???? i will use rubber brake hose like stock and want to moun like oem without modify it to mount it . does it will mount like oem for the brake rubber hose too ????
thanks all for your help and time greatly appreciated

yes, that is the `grandam` or beretta or whatever car you choose to call it brake upgrade, you can do that job 100% yourself (just need to have your fiero rotors hubs cut off, and alittle massaging to the calipers), do a search here, you will find all the info you need, the master cyl upgrade is not needed, and you can lleave the rears stock.

edit: I think you can buy just the hubs from the fiero store(be cheaper shipping then the whole package), or check in the mall I think someone was offering them not long ago.

1.does it comes from grand-am brakes ??????

Yes. TFS just does GA front and Bigger MC.

2.does the offset of the wheel will change with this brake ????
It moves the wheel ~1/2" (each) outward. The thickness added by add any rotor to remaining Fiero "Hub." You can change offset according to fix that or not. Most don't.

3.does anyone do this brake upgrade for less ( because im canadian the cost of shipping will be expensive and will need to pay the core charge and ship my old brake will be more expensive then the core charge )
Follow same directions as TFS and everyone else.
If turning hubs, GA flange dimension here. www.fiero.nl/forum/Archives...130314-2-119307.html

4.does the big bore master cylinder will help with this kit
5.can i just do front conversion with keeping the rear stock or the rear will wear faster or less or i will not have same braking balancing (dont want to do rear because want keeping my parking brake and dont want to modify it )

Big MC solve some issues but creates others.
Mix of GA front w/ OE rear have issues too.
See my Cave, Brake Upgrade

6.and on the fiero store they said about the caliper that you need the bleeder pointing upward so the right calipers will be on the driver side and left will be on pass side so does it will have the banjo hole ( for the rubber brake line ) in the same place like stock ???? i will use rubber brake hose like stock and want to moun like oem without modify it to mount it . does it will mount like oem for the brake rubber hose too ????
No. Do not change hoses locations. Right hose = Right on car.
Do change hoses...

Stock brakes work better with good pads, like Wagner ThermoQuiet Ceramic pads.
