No and no.  If you feel the brakes are inadequate then make sure what you have is in good working order and use decent pads (M1144).  Consider a remote servo if you find the pedal effort excessive.  If you still think you need bigger brakes then fit the complete Mk1 2L Vitesse/GT6 setup.

No. I have a brake servo and Mintex 1144 pads on my 13/60 and the stopping power is impressive when compared with standard brake pads. If you really want more stopping power then go for the Vitesse 2 litre/ Gt6 set up! Cheers, Dave.

Thanks for that, the car has been off the road for a while is going through a total restoration by a local garage and I am just going through my tick list of things that I may need to improve on, but this one is now crossed off until I drive the car again.
