Default modding brakes

i've tried searching but haven't found adequate info on this. it's the age old problem of wanting to mod the ikon brakes.

now i've done a bit of searching and i gather that it's not too easy to transplant fiesta ABS into the ikon - because of the changes to the ECM (as i said that's what i gather). it's also more than likely to be a bit pricey if at all possible.

so the question is what kind of mods are possible. all discs? better pads? some estimates would be nice as well.

i have a 1.6 and i find that sudden braking is a bit scary even when the brake pads are in good shape. i think ikon braking is legendary so i know people can relate to it. BTW, i'm not running any other mods so performance is stock.
