Those brakes are ridiculously big!

I’m all for good stopping power though

Good luck with the build!

Agree with @james400 and @Barbell330 ... there is no such thing as brakes that are too good. Brakes are there to stop at any speed or any powered van whether at 30mph where a child may step into the road or at motorway speeds to avoid an accident.

Personally, I currently run R32 set up which are adequate for my current 300bhp in my opinion but will be running a lot more than this also with 4 wheel drive so upgrading to Audi TTRS 4 pot callipers and discs

I have a question ?
Reading this, how do you determine if you have 50mm or 55mm hubs, mine is a 2018 Caddy Maxi Life, and I assumed I had the larger hubs.

Apologies, searched further and found a quote from @Doc. :D
No, C20 is a designation given to a SWB caddy and has nothing to do with the strut diameter.
When VW built your caddy the struts where as per the design for your engine power output at manufacturing.
The most reliable method is to measure the strut, unless you can recognise a hub with integrated brake caliper carrier (50mm) against a hub with a seperate carrier (55mm).

Simple, remove wheel, measure strut.
It's a fool proof method really.

Or if you can get a pic of the back of the hub an see the separate carrier bolts that will tell you too
