Mazda MX5 Mk1/Mk2 (NA/NB) Wilwood Powerlite 4 pot brake kit (Rear with H/B)

Regular price £624.17 Sale

This kit has been designed to completely replace the original rear brake setup with a larger Wilwood 4 pot kit.

It has been designed primarily for kit cars based on the MX5 running gear as the calipers are suitable for up to 750kg cars.

As this kit has a functioning handbrake mechanism built into the caliper, it makes it eligible for race classes which require a parking brake. While it isn't as strong as the original parking brake and not suitable for drifting applications it will hold the car on a moderate incline but we would recommend leaving the car in gear if parking on a steep slope.

The kit comprises of:

1 x pair of new Wilwood Powerlite 4 pot calipers (with integral handbrake)
1 x pair of 276x10mm Sport rear discs (plain/grooved/dimpled/drilled finish)
1 x pair of fast road pads (Wilwood BP10 compound or equivalent)
1 x pair of custom fabricated Aluminium brackets

1 x pair of custom handbrake cables **
All bolts and fittings to fit the kit to your car.

(Colour selection is for disc coating, not caliper colour!)

The kit has been tried and tested on several different types of car both on the road and track and has performed flawlessly.

Type III Mil-Spec hard anodising replaces Type II black anodising as the standard finish on all base and powder coat finish caliper models. This process produces a thicker, harder surface with a rich, medium-grey appearance.  More importantly, it creates a more durable wear surface in the piston bores, with increased resistance to abrasion and corrosion over the entire external surface of the caliper. 

Please note, this brake kit is made to order, so may have a leadtime of approximately 7-10 working days. 

** Original handbrake cables will need replacing with cables and new balance bar supplied in the kit. Some modifications may be required to ensure correct fitment. If at all unsure, consult a qualified mechanic.


Ask a Question
  • Bonjour, quelle est la forme des plaquette pour les powerlite ?

    This caliper uses the Wilwood 7912 pattern pads

  • Are these calipers available in black?

    They're only availabe in the grey anodised colour now.

  • What's the outside ratio for 276mm rotors? I can't find the size of those little handbrake arms.

    The hanbrake mechanism adds approximately 20mm to the radius, but does still fit under some 15" wheels.

  • Hi, the mk2.5 sport caliper hoses are compatible with these brake kit?

    We can modify the calipers to take a standard M10x1 fitting. Please request this in the order notes.

  • Could be possible to sell regular unit instead handbrake unit?

    Yes we can. Please email for prices. 

  • Hi, are you able to supply the Calipers in Red?

    The calipers are supplied in Type III Mil-Spec hard anodised finish (as pictured) but you're weclome to paint them any colour you like.

  • hi, can i fit these to an mx5 rather than a kit car? only asking because the ad says up to 750kg thanks

    They will fit the MX5 But are more suited to a kit car due to the smaller pad, which will wear more quickly on a heavier car. 

  • Hi! Will this fit under 15x6?

    The kit should clear yes. You will need approximately 330mm inside diameter for the caliper to clear the inside of the wheel. Spoke design will dictacte whether the caliper will clear without spacers.
