No one has done a conversion, so its a little hard to write it up. Why would you need to do one anyway? It would be very expensive.

I agree. The rear drums just don't cut it. It would be time consuming and expensive project. The ABS system alone is enough to drive a person to drink(but I usually don't need an excuse for that. ) But if someone came out with a slick conversion kit I'd jump at it.

You'd have to reprogram the EBCM to make it safe. Don't hold your breath waiting for a kit.

No, weight transfer and total weight come into play.

true, but if someone had there heart set on a setup that would be a start for them, since the cars basically share alot of the same parts
