just wanting some info, i have a set of 2.0 calipers for my 1.4 sport, but at the minute the breaks are really spongey, will i have to replace the master cylinder to compensate for this before fitting the 2.0 calipers? or is there any other symptons for this?

thanx

er, braided hoses, off the top of my head http://www.tuning.co.uk

you just need corsa ones, they'll work with the 2 litre brakes.

as for the noise, not sure what it would be tbh

bleed the brakes using a hydrolic bleeding system and fit some braided hoses. the hissing could be a vaccuum leak from the inlet manifold on the eingine to the servo, get it checked asap.
