94-04 M2300-X Brembo's​ (alternative?)

I bought a set of what was sold to me as "Focus Mk1 RS" Brembo's from the UK. These are a silver version of the 2000 Cobra R black 4 puck Brembo's.

When I got them they fit the mounts on the sn95 spindles and centered on the 13" rotor, the pucks measure 36/40 as well, but the brake lines were wrong for the Cobra banjo fitting. There are actually three cast bosses on these calipers and these were tapped in the center boss for a 10mm bubble flare fitting instead of a Cobra banjo. Now from what I have read, these should have been "bolt on" replacements. I did some research and it turns out that these are off of a Peugot 406 20v Turbo Coupe or the Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo. All are in the Brembo E family Type 2; same as the Cobra R from what I could find.

Has anyone else used these?

Anyone know if there is a safe banjo to bubble adaptor? I know they can make me a line that will work pretty affordably, but doesn't hurt to ask.

I will take some pics tomorrow when I get to the shop just in case anyone is interested. Seems like these are still plentiful over in Europe....

you should be able to just use a banjo instead. providing you have a flat machined surface on the boss for the fitting

Yup, they look the same and he found even better information on the model availability.

The bit on the "In the name of keeping this info up to speed, you need a M10 x 1.0 banjo bolt that is roughly 22mm long." was exactly what I was looking for!!

Thanks to You and TBN For the info!!
