Bleeding Brakes

I got a good deal on some used Brembos and if all goes well Ill be putting them on this weekend. Is there anything I need to know about bleeding them? I have a manual tranny, does this some how share the master cylinder and if so is it an issue? I plan on using a one man bleeder kit.

The clutch is self bleeding, so even though they share a reservoir, the clutch wont be affected when bleeding brakes.

Just mind that there are two sets of pistons, and thus, you must bleed each side of the caliper. So there's a total of 4 spots to bleed in the front, and two in the rear, other than that its just standard procedure; start furthest from the Master Cylinder (PR) and move closest to it (DF).

And honestly, if you have an air compressor, this is the best $30 you can spend, ive done at least 20 full bleeds with this thing and its still runnin strong.

Ill look into that bleeder. I have a Motive bleeder now. I kind of like it, it tends be a little messy and sometimes a pain. It doesn't like to keep pressure all the time.

Just remember only a handful of wheels actually fit the brembos so you might need new wheels and tires fyi

Or spacers. On my 2014 V6 PP or 13/14 GT/CS Rims, you need 0.5" Spacers.

This reminds me...I replaced the stock clutch line with a stainless steel one. I must've pumped the clutch over 200 times before it started to feel normal again.
