Thumbs up How to do an Evo 6/7 brake setup on Lancer.

I hope the title explains it.

I've not lost my way from the ICE forum nor have lost my mind. Lol!
Just that the bhp venom has dug deep and this time not for more speed but to put a stop to all of it. A bit too much of technical confusions have made intrusion into my peaceful night sleeps. And maa kasam! It's not the malaria infested mosquitoes alone. I have even seen some wierd dreams of a car crying and begging for some good brakes which can bite real hard.

I've seen some and heard lots about fitting Evo 6 (?) brake kits on Lancer. According to what I know, it comprises of changing Brake discs, rotors, calipers, pads, booster and brake liners from the stock setup. Some have even done without changing the liners and boosters. Also, as the Indian lancer came with drum brakes in the rear, some serious works had to be done to accommodate discs at the rear.

I believe the Evo 6 braking is 4pot, all discs (non ventilated), single caliper setup. Ain't it?
Also, Indian lancer came with 100 wheel pcd. And Evo 6 pcd is different.

I am on a mission here to find help and assistance in retro fitting evo brake parts on an Indian Lancer (2000 model).
1. What are the parts to change?
2. What other parts than brakes will be effected?
3. What are the things to be taken into account while going in for this setup?
4. Is it wise to opt for any other setup than the Evo 6 for Indian lancer?

Your expert replies and suggestions will be highly, truly, faithfully and lovingly appreciated.

Please don't ask which car, what car etc.. now! I promise it will be worth the wait. Once again, meri beard kasam!

So, what are you waiting for? Make those grey cells move and fire up google or do whatever. I'll hang on without losing sleep!
Advance thanks to all.

Mods!

Autocar India explains about retrofitting Evo brakes on Lancer?
I'll have to dig up my neighbours' cupboards once I'm back in India, then.

You can share some info here before that. Ain't it?

This means that the wheel hub has to be changed too. Ain't it?
Or is it not necessary to touch it for brake change. I'm noob in this department for sure! :(
