T4 Post Icon Bigger/better brakes

Hello All,

After fitting the more powerfull TDI engine my brakes are feeling a bit under power'd
So I'm after binning my solid disc set up for some vented discs.
Am I right in thinking a full swap of discs, pads, carriers and flexible brake pipes would do the job?
Is there anything else I kneed?
My T4 is a 2000 on 15 inch wheels
Cheers all

don't know specifics for transporters, but the switch solid to vented wont generally give more braking effect, unless the discs are bigger diameter, pads have more surface area or the pistons in the calipers are bigger. generally vented disc set ups are identical calipers with a spacer built in, compared to solid setup, so youre only gaining less brake FADE, not power
