Need serious stopping powa

I have been hanging on for an engineering company that have said they will modify some hubs and make some adaptors for a pair of brembos (not pug406 type) since before xmas last year and no sign of a start date to do them. I recently did a track day in the zed and found the stock stoppers wanting, I know various pads will improve the stock calipers but this isn't enough to pull up the 260bhp+ the K is pushing out.
There was a post not too long ago about a kit that is available and obviously the brembodge which I am interested in but don't know of how to get in touch with the people involved in both types. So if anyone can point me in the right direction I would be grateful. I know there is expensive brake conversions on the market. But these are a little pricey atm,

What brakes are you currently using? And which car is this in?

Brembodge setup was made by the guys over on rovertech which tend to be more performance and techy orientated than here so worth a search on there.

I went for Clio 197 / Megane sport callipers with 324mm discs and uses adaptors (which I made myself)

Works well off standard mc and has good performance. I'm giving them some hammer on thurs so I will lay you know how they get on.

Discs are mtec pads are Brembo
