Something went terribly wrong on his install then. All things being
equal (weight of cars, driving style, same pad compound etc) the G60
conversion should have easily out braked OE 4000 brakes. Just look at
the swept area and the clamping force. Twice the pistons, twice (approx)
the swept braking area. A correct G60 install on that car should suck
your eyeballs out.
