Hmhh, you may be right. Just unsure of the rotor size for those. I know the older (2003-2005) Lancer Ralliarts use a 11" rotor like a DSM, however they're rocking single-piston calipers. And they're drilled for 5x115.3. But you're right, the OZ edition looks to be 4 bolt. Now it's just a matter of finding out what size rotor they use.

awesome write up and thanks for going Frankenstein on your elantra, was just a bit curious though for a cheap a** like me what kind of vehicles would i need to look for to take parts off of at a wrecker ( i don't mind work to fix and find parts if it means i can keep a low budget) thanks and also a side note love how clean you keep your car and that its "unnaturally aspirated" (love that sticker)

Thank you, I do what I can.

I'm glad I was able to shine some light on this topic for the community. Hopefully the Tiburon guys come across this too. Cuz they're already 5x114.3... meaning they can do some nasty big brake upgrades using Mitsubishi parts, all on a budget.

I would like to see somebody else do this conversion. It's literally night and day.

What about 2006 Kia optima 11" rotors?!? They are 4x114.3, wonder if they would work.
DSM 2 piston calipers + 06 Kia Optima rotors + stainless steel braided brake lines = track day big brake kit

Well did some searching and seems that you can get the Raybestos Loaded calipers for cheaper on ebay. $60.50 per caliper and that is with an $8 core charge and shipping included. Also 2004 Sonata rotors will work also if you can get them cheaper, they are the same as the Optima.

On another elantra forum there is discussion that the elantra master cylinder might not be able to handle the twin piston calipers as the bore and piston size on the elantra master cylinder is much smaller than used on the XG350 or dsm cars(both use the same twin piston 43mm PBR calipers). IIRC from yesterday the elantra master cylinder had a 1.5mm smaller bore compared to the XG350 master cylinder. I don't know if this could be remedied by installing better brake lines front and rear which can reduce hose expansion and force more pressure to each caliper piston?

Well, I got lucky and found a pair of front 07 Tiburon SE aluminum calipers with brackets, SO, I will be going that route. 11" rotors off a sonata will work with the Tiburon calipers so ill pick those up also along with some EBC red stuff pads.

Sounds good, I'm sure you'll love those too.

Which just reminds me... you don't even need to find the early Evo rotors. Just pick up a new set of Sonata 11" rotors at the parts store, find the 2G DSM calipers, and its done

Yep that's correct! I did stainless lines with mine and it works great with the dual piston calipers.

The car stops on a ****ing dime compared to before, it will literally feel like a completely different car.
